Sunny Florida!

We are here! On the flight here, Mike rode with the girls and I sat alone. Can you believe it? I convinced Mike that I would be riding by myself with the girls on the way home so he should get the experience on the way there. He did great with them, even getting Ern to nap a bit. Then, thanks to Keri, our ride to Melbourne was pleasant. Once we got to the Konicki house, the girls had a blast. Halle and Annabelle and Leah played and played. They climbed outside in the backyard, played in the ball pit, had a tea party, counted bears, drove Halle's mini-Mustang around the cul-de-sac, used sidewalk chalk, watched Alvin and the Chipmunks, etc.

After the kids were fairly settled, Nikki, Keri, and I went shopping. I only bought the necessities for our trip, but it was fun just hanging out with the girls. We got to stroll aroud Target with out Starbucks and catch up. I love those times...

Because Erin only napped 20 minutes all day, she had a rough night. Leah went to bed at 9ish, so she also had a rough night. It's almost annoying that my kids are so regulated, because when we do something out of the ordinary they have a hard time adjusting. Don't get me wrong, on a daily basis I LOVE it. I love knowing that I have at least 2 hours to myself each day after they go to bed. But they do NOT handle change well.

The plan for today is to go to Erica's house (she has a photo studio inside her house) to take pictures of the girls. I also know that we are having dinner over there too. Christina and her family and Liz & Ella are arriving today too. Leah will have so many kids to play wth, she won't know what to so with herself! And Erin can play NEXT to Corgan and Kaitlyn.

I am so happy to be here!
