Florida 2011

We went to Florida again this year with Zach’s parents.  It was a nice relaxing time at the beach and pool with a little bit of cooler temperatures.  Sophia of course did great again on all her flights… yes all her flights, we had connecting flights, but she was a trooper!  Here are some photos from the week.


Exploring the pool when we got there


Hoot, the owl, that Sophia just loved going and finding every morning.


The nurse shark that Zach caught


First trip to the beach!!!  She loved the sand and building sand castles but wasn’t too sure about the water.

Tuesday we headed to Ft. Meyers to the Imaginarium, a hands on aquarium and more.

My mom, Zach, Sophia and I went to Philly to visit family.  We had a great time.  We even got to celebrate my cousin, Michael’s engagement. Zach and I went to a Phillies game, ate all the good cheesesteaks at all the right places and went out one night to a comedy show with my cousin, Nicole and her husband Ryan.  We got to see both my Aunts and my grandfather.  Sophia was such a trooper and did really well on both of the flights and staying at my Aunt’s in Center Philly.  Thanks to everyone there and Grandma for a great trip!

Lunch with Aunt Judi, Bobbies, and Lois.  Then back to their condo to visit some.
