Florida Trip: The Pool

Okay so I'm back!! First and foremost, THANK you to all of the guest bloggers for taking over while I was gone!! Loved it. Although, no thanks to blogger for deleting a few of their posts. BOOO!

This obviously goes without saying but I missed Bennett like CRAZY (more on that later). But I really did have a wonderful time. My Husband and I did SO much! I have lots of pictures to show you (though, I regret to tell you that most are pretty terrible quality, as I didn't want to take my SLR to the theme parks or the pool).

I am going to break my vacation posts up into 3 or 4 parts. Partly cause I have lots of pictures, but mostly because I just don't have anything to blog about right now... I have a lot to catch up on with my photography business. So.. get ready to see lots of our time in Florida!

Since it was in the 90's the entire trip, I'll start my vacation posts with the pool! We spent several days just hangin' out by the pool. It felt so good in that heat! Floating the lazy river, going down the water slide, and sunbathing. And let me tell you, the vitamin D felt SOOO good.

We stayed with my Sister-in-law and her family at the Regal Palms in Davenport, FL. It's about 15-20 minutes from downtown Disney.  This resort was pretty awesome! Very spacious and lots of pools to play in.

My nieces were so much fun to hang out with... they LOVE the pool. But, what kid doesn't? :)

So... HERE we go!

how cool is the last shot with your niece getting air!! THese are all awesome and I bet soaking up the sun and getting a change of scenery was a welcome break though you probably would have loved to have your little man around for at least some of it huh! Great captures and welcome back!

I'm so jealous, but so happy you had a wonderful time. And I love how your hair is trying to curl in that humidity. Must have been a hair nightmare!
