Bubbly bubbles!

While down in Naples over spring break, the kids ended up getting to take the most bubbly bubble baths ever! It started innocently enough but the bubbles just kept growing…

The Suave Kids 3in1 soap apparently makes some REALLY impressive, foamy bubbles!

Even when we tried to use less soap the second time it was still major major bubbles!

Squeaky clean!

The rest of spring break

The next morning after our Starbucks run, we took the kids to see some pretty impressive boats…

I think Robert and I were more impressed than they were! ha! They just wanted to get to the beach! Can’t say I blamed them because it was another BEAUTIFUL day!

Samantha was fearless in the water. She laid in the surf forever just letting the water knock her over and loving every second of it!

Before driving back on Sunday we spent about 2 hours on the beach soaking up the last day of vacation!

My favorite part of the trip might have been this little video right here! Ha! My practical jokers!

A few more pics from our time there…

We then loaded up our tired crew and drove home…

What a truly wonderful vacation we had! Aren’t we so lucky to get to do it all!

I hope you all have a great weekend and a very happy Easter!

On to AL!

After a fun stay in Naples, we said bye bye to Daddo and GJ…

and boarded a very small plane to fly from Tampa to Pensacola. It wasn’t the most fun flight but we sure were glad to see this guy on the other end!

Then we were super excited to see this double rainbow once we got to the condo in Orange Beach!

We then got to spend 2.5 more days playing on the soft white sand beaches of Alabama! The weather could not have been more perfect and the kids could not have had more fun. We hadn’t been to OB in 3 years! Pics from that trip here and here. So, this was Samantha’s first trip and the first year that everyone could really enjoy the beach!

It was a fun and full day on the beach! That night we took three totally worn out kids out to dinner…

More Naples

We spent 5 days in Naples and loved every second. We did all our favorite things including getting ice cream…

driving the car and riding scooters. We hit GJ up for some toys at Target…

We hung out with Daddo…

We had breakfast at Skillets and did a lot more pool tricks – watch Spencer, Samantha and Maxwell! Overall, we just had fun….

Our stay in Naples is never long enough!

Naples!

We had a great spring break and even managed to hit up two different beaches! Pretty nice! The trip started with me taking the 3 kids down to Naples. We were all packed and ready to head to the airport…

but when we pulled into the airport, we realized we forgot the car seat for the plane!!! It is ESSENTIAL to keeping Baby wrangled on the flight and we needed it once we landed in Florida. I went on in with the kids while Robert raced home…

airport

He got back to the airport just in time for us to get through security and RUUUUN to the gate in order to board with our A boarding group. Phew! We got settled in our seats – with the help of a flight attendant – and were ready to blast off! Right before take off though a different flight attendant told us we had to move because you cannot have a car seat in the row in front of an exit row. Aaaaargh. Thankfully the entire row in front of us agreed to switch. But, there was no one for Maxwell to switch with so he ended up sitting two rows behind us. My trooper did great though and handled it with no problem!

After the flight and the drive from Tampa, we were all glad to finally be in Naples that afternoon…

The kids really wanted to go swimming. They tested out GJ’s pool but….BRRRRR!

So, we just suited up and headed to the Beach Club for an afternoon swim! (I have no idea why Spence is making this face bc he was very happy!)

It was the best way to end a long day and there were plenty of pool tricks by Baby, Spencer, Maxwell and then even by all three together!

More Naples tomorrow…

See you then!
