One thing that Shane and me want to try to do every year is take a family vacation. Well, this past weekend we took our first ever family vacation! Our amazing friends, the Johnson's, let us use their condo in Sarasota. We have been wanting to take the girls to the beach for the very first time so we were way excited about being able to go to Sarasota for the weekend (thank you guys SO much!). We drove down on Thursday evening. I knew that the first thing that had to happen was "baby-proofing" the condo. So, I went in first and moved everything that was breakable out of reach (you don't realize just how many things are breakable until you are having to move them all :) and we moved around all the furniture, etc to create blockades so the girls couldn't get to territories that they could destroy. After I finished the baby-proofing task, we let the girls in and started unloading our things. Not 1 minute after we let the girls in, we hear this awful CRASH from the kitchen area. I sprint in there to find this beautiful vase laying on the floor...destroyed. Nice. Gabbie was standing there looking at me like..."what??". The vase had been in a corner of the breakfast area and I had not seen it on my initial sweep of the place. Fabulous. Thankfully it wasn't a vase they had gotten on their honeymoon or something like that. Thankfully :)
Chairs blocking the entertainment center drawers. Those are VERY tempting to open and demolish everything in them :)
When we were at the condo, we were in the pool. The girls LOVE the pool. They especially love jumping off the side for daddy to catch them...over and over and over again :)
They also shot some hoops on the side.
