Florida, Part One

Last week we had the pleasure of vacationing in Naples, Florida.  My grandpa lives there 6 months out of the year and my parents have now been living there for 3 of those.  The boys and I flew down on Sunday night and Mike joined us on Thursday evening.  Then we all flew back home on Sunday night.  We stayed with my grandpa (as did my parents) and had an absolutely wonderful time.  As always, pictures tell the story much better than my words.  I’m doing this in two parts – part one being before Mike arrived and part two being when Mike was with us.

*Photo cred – any picture that looks amazing was taken by my dad. =D
