In Daytona Beach we stayed with our good friends the Friedmans at their plush condo. They have two boys around Anne and Whitney's age, Carter and Tyler. All the kids got along well and we had a great time. It was the first week long vacation we took since before Whitney was born! It was nice to get away from home, work, doctors, therapies (for Laura and Whitney's sake) and to just sit around the pool and the beach for a week. The girls loved it!
Here is our rowdy Daytona crew above.
Since we've been back, Anne informed me this a.m. that she wanted her sucker after breakfast (we bought her a HUGE sucker in Daytona and she brought it home - see below). I informed her that her sucker "was only for vacation," to which she replied, "I want to go back to vacation." I shot back with "Yeah, I hear ya, but that sucker is only for Florida." she then replied, "I want to go back to Florida." If only it were that easy Anne. So we're trying to get back in the swing of things and get on with our lives and out of la-dee-da vacation mode. Whitney starts her therapies back up tomorrow and Anne goes back to school.
We also got to see my brother and sister-in-law and our nieces, Julia and Grace, for one night on the way down in Macon, Georgia, where they live and my brother is a professor at Mercer University. Four girls together......a lot of action for one night, and it was great to see everyone. Notice Whitney below surrounded by two costumed Ariels and a Tinkerbell.
