We're back! What a perfect family vacation! The weather was awesome. Well, it was a little on the hot side, but I won't complain about that. For the first part of our trip, we stayed in our usual spot in St.Petersburg. It was our first time flying as a family of four, and because our flight left right at Sam and Poppy's bedtime, I was a little nervous about how they would do. Within 10 minutes of take off, I nursed Sam and he was asleep in my arms. Poppy was occupied with a few new games on the ipod. Marc and I looked at each other and both let out a sigh of relief. And then exactly 1 hour into the 3 hour flight, Sam popped his little eyes open and was up without a chance of getting him back to sleep. He was tired and although he never actually started crying, he made me work at keeping him content for the rest of the flight. At the same exact time he woke up, Poppy declared that she was done with the ipod and started whining about being tired and bored, etc for the rest of the flight. It was exhausting, but we made it.
I don't think I got any pictures of her in the water, but Poppy was a fish this year! She kept her floaties on all day and loved swimming in the ocean (or the sea as she kept calling it).
