We started our trip by stopping by to see Great Grandpa Pres in Cheyenne. He kept telling all of the kids that their eyes looked just like his. Our kids are lucky to know their great grandpa. He kept reminding us to not take this time with our little family for granted.

After we arrived in Florida, the first beach we visited was Boca Grande. It was super windy that day but it wasn’t going to stop our kids from playing on the beach.

We took lots of morning and evening bike rides. Little Miss had a shiner all during our trip from falling off Willis and Kathy’s fence. We had several people ask which one of her brothers she got into a fight with.

We also visited Englewood Beach.

Elizabeth was busy checking out sharks teeth found on the beach.

Chris and Grandpa George did lots of fishing. This is a little pond that is near their house. I enjoyed running around it while they fished.

Dusty loves to climb things. I love all of these images with his untied sneakers. He finally knows how to tie them. He caught on just this past weekend.

Can you tell how much he loves it when I bring my camera out? This picture made me laugh out loud when I saw it. HA!

Dusty did something to her arm.┬áDon’t worry she was over it quick!

The kids helped me collect some pinecones. They were huge, and I plan to use them to decorate around my house. My mom is the one that inspired me to decorate with pinecones.



We made it back to Boca Grande, and decided to stay to watch the sun set. I’m so glad we did.

Chris grilled some fish for dinner. Yum!

We chose to go back to Boca Grande for our last trip to the beach. We definitely plan to head back next year. It is such a neat place to visit.

Our butterfly baby is no longer a baby. She will always be my butterfly baby though. We took several walks along the beach hand in hand. Those are memories I will cherish.

I loved looking at your photos from Florida, it is a whole other world down there. We stayed near Englewood a few years ago in a condo for 2 weeks and also did lots of shark tooth hunting as well. Our oldest daughter Stephanie and family live close by in Venice. Next year we plan to go back and already have rented a small studio right on Manasota Beach. We’ve always wanted to live right on the beach and so we will next season, God Willing.

Your grandpa is SO correct, don’t take this time for granted, smart man indeed.
Bless you all.
