Excuses Excuses

Sorry I have been MIA a little bit the last couple weeks.  We had a very fun trip to the Florida Keys and then I have been on vacation mode since we've been back and I don't feel like doing anything.  Anyway, here are some pics from the trip to prove that I really do have an excuse, and hopefully I will snap out of this vacation mode sooner than later :)


Most of the trip was spent on our little beach by our hotel.  We stayed at the Hampton in Key Largo.  It was perfect for us and the breakfast wasn't too bad either :)



Allie loved playing in the sand and water on the beaches out there.


It was so relaxing to watch the sunset every night while Allie played.


One day we were there we went to "Theater of the Sea" which was a little tiny Sea World with dolphins, sea lions, sea turtles, and even a shark and crocodile.  They had shows going on all day and we got to see the Dolphin, Sea Lion, and Parrot show.



Allie was exhausted after that day, especially because she had come down with a cough and runny nose.  Luckily, it only lasted a couple days.


We had to go to the Bahia Honda State Park on the way down to Key West, since it was voted best beach in the 90's.  It was a pretty beach, but I wouldn't say it was the best :)



I couldn't believe Allie actually picked up this dead crab and was happy about it!


This was our view while driving from key to key.  Water on both sides.



We stopped at a beach on Key West after some sightseeing, then had lunch.



Allie was so good in the car and on the airplane to and from Florida!



I may be posting some more pics when I finish editing the rest.




PS

Here is my real excuse for not blogging much lately:


Yep.  That's my baby :)  Due end of November.  We can hardly wait :)
