one more time

*warning - picture heavy post*

I have had this post typed at least twice and somehow it's not here. Could it be that I have been thinking about it and sitting with a new opened page for days?!?! :)

Today is my first day as "nanny" to Jack. He really is a good baby and just goes with the flow. :) Him and Layne have been just staring at each other all morning. hehe Right now, they are both down taking little cat naps, so I thought I would try to catch up my blog.

We had a great vacation. We traveled to Lake Weir, which is just south of Ocala. My in-laws rented a big house right on the lake and we all stayed there. It was his parents, Andy, David (his brother), and Wendy (his sister), and all the respective families, minus one hubby that couldn't make the trip.

We enjoyed the lake so much. I don't think Emma and Bayleigh ever got out of the water except to eat and sleep for the first two days!

Grandpa took Bayleigh and Emma for their first train ride and they loved it. Well, Bayleigh loved shopping while waiting for the return train. hehe Ahhh, she is her mother's child. :) While they did that, the girls all drove down to Mount Dora for some walking/shopping. I didn't buy much of anything except some Crocs for Bayleigh that were $10. Ohhhh, and cupcakes! We found the most delicious little cupcake shop. They were just divine!

Alright, onto the good stuff - PICTURES! *warning - TONS of pictures to follow*

On the way down, the only way we could get Layne calmed down in the car

So, that is basically our trip. :) We had a nice time, but it was nice to get home, for sure!

That is all that I will bore you with today. Enjoy the rest of your afternoon/evening.

Loved seeing the photos of your vacation! It looks like you all had a wonderful time. OK...Layne with the iPod is hilarious. Make me wonder what was playing. Please say the Ramones and not Barney. LOL!

Yes, it was my ipod and Colbie Callait was playing. :) Sometimes you do what you gotta do to get the baby calmed down. haha

Great pics! Some GREAT scrapbooking ones there! Bless you for being a nanny. That's one thing I don't think I would (or could) be good at. I am just a "just my own kids" kinda mom LOL.
