The flight is relatively quick being just 3-hours and non-stop. Luke and Emma are easy to travel with and I love their excitement to go through the airport. Myles is getting easier, but I wouldn't say the same of him just yet. :) After checking our bags, Luke exclaimed, "Yes! Security is next! My favorite!" People within ear shot (which happened to be quite a few) got a good laugh. I don't think those words have ever been spoken in sincerity.
Waaaay too many questions following this "enlightening" reading.
Bryan manned Myles on the way down. We're too big to fit in one row so we divided up this way. I'd give him a B+.
We were excited to make it to our condo. It was even better than the pictures! Perfect for our two families. We put Myles down for a nap, Bryan finished up some work emails and I took Luke and Emma down to the pool to meet up with McNeils. The pool was beautiful and the kids jumped right in. We stayed for a little while then Kelly and I caught a taxi and headed to the local Walmart and Sam's (right next to each other). It was very convenient. We loaded up our carts, stuffed the trunk full and almost made it back to the correct condo tower. :)
We ended up strolling the pool grounds, upsetting the doorman by taking these carts on his lobby floor and knocking on some poor woman's door to help us find the right 15A. It was hilarious and made for some good memories.
There was some serious hanger from the smiliest one before he had food in his hand.
Bryan and Devin on the balcony trying to spot the alligator or was it a crocodile(?) that Talon (McNeil's 8-year-old) found the day before.
Can you spot him?
After dinner, we headed down to the beach.
We stayed until dark. I was so content. I loved hearing the giggles from the kids as the waves rolled in.
These two were buddies with their seashell bags and chasing each other on the beach.
The cherry on top of the first day was when the fireworks went off close to our balcony.
