So our vacation consisted of two main things all week.  The beach and ice cream.

She wasn't actually sleeping in this picture, but she was SUCH a trooper about all the different places she did sleep.  I still can't believe the progress we've made in the past year in the sleeping department.  She had her own bedroom in the condo - slept every night without a peep.  And regardless of how hectic our schedule was, she still managed to take a nap somewhere every single day.  Most days she was so exhausted from playing at the beach, that as soon as we started eating lunch she would say "And then we're gonna take our naps?"

Love the look of concentration on her face.

Oh, this is right after she pulled her famous ice cream switcheroo on Uma.  She'll be about half way done with her ice cream when she politely asks if she can taste yours.  And then she tells you how much she likes your ice cream and let's you know that she's just going to keep it and there is no way to convince her otherwise.  We all learned to eat our ice cream fast when this girl is around.

Snuggle bunnies.

On the way home from the Tampa Zoo.  When she woke up, she was playing with Ratty and somehow managed to wrap him up in my mom's sweatshirt and temporarily forgot about him.  When we dropped my parents off at their hotel, my mom took her sweatshirt with her, not knowing that Ratty was hidden in it.  Within seconds of pulling out of the parking lot, Poppy welled up in tears and said "OH NO!  Uma has my Ratty in her sweatshirt!!!  Ratty!!!!  I need him to sleep!  WHY WOULD SHE DO THAT?!?!"  Of course we went back and got him immediately, but the way she acted so betrayed by my mom and her kidnapping of Ratty had us all peeing our pants with laughter!

Guilty of another ice cream switcheroo!

The two amigos.

Love how she's keeping her eye on the incoming waves, making sure they don't get too close.

Stay tuned, coming up next - Disney pics!
