Drew, Kayley and I took a quick trip to Florida to visit friends before the school year starts.  Our friends moved to Florida in June so we flew to Orlando the first week of August to see them.  We left Ryan home with Andy.  I didn't think he would really even notice we were leaving, but I was so wrong.  He was devastated we didn't take him.  Andy said he recovered quickly, but he was so upset when we left.  I felt terrible!

Jamie, Sam and Maia greeted us at the airport.  We had lunch and then went to their house and the kids immediately jumped in the pool.  When Chuck got off work, we headed out on their boat for some tubing and swimming.

Here is a quick video of Drew on the tube:

We drove out to New Smyrna Beach the next day for some beach time.  It rained on and off so that was a bummer, but the kids still got plenty of time in the water.  We stayed at a hotel in New Smyrna that night and headed back to the beach the next morning so the Kayley could look for seashells.

The kids swam more that afternoon when we got back to the house.  That night we drove to downtown Winter Park.  It is such a cute little downtown with lots of little shops and restaurants.

We went to Sam and Maia's swim meet the last morning and then flew home in the afternoon.  We had a great time and our time in Florida flew by.  We can't wait to go back!
