A few weeks ago we drove down to Orlando for a few days to visit friends and take the girls to Disney for the first time ever (well, we actually took them for like 2 hours when they were 20 months old, but they have no memory of that :). THEY.WERE.PUMPED. Actually that is a major understatement. They had been counting down the days for 2 whole months.
Driving down to O'town :)
We stayed with our fabulous Kiwi friends (aka Aunt & Uncle) Georgie & Mark. They are in seminary at RTS for the next 3 years and we LOOOOOVE the fact that we can actually drive to see them vs. taking a plane to the other side of the world :). We arrived at their apartment a few minutes before they returned.....thus the next few pics....
Their apartment complex has a really sweet pool that the girls IMMEDIATELY wanted to go to try out :)
Georgie getting warmed up before hitting the pool with the girlies :)
The daddy and his girlies
It didn't take long for the girls to talk Aunt Georgie into joining them...
Look at her go :)
The Gabster preferred sun-bathing..... :)
She finally decided to give it a go :)
The original Karate Kid ;)
Aunt Georgie is the C.O.O.L.E.S.T.
Gabbie is currently OBSESSED with doing cartwheels. She wakes up in the morning and the first thing she does is do cartwheels down the hall to the living room then she continues to do them all day....no matter where she is at....thus....cartwheels at the pool :)
Synchronized to perfection :)
There she goes again :)
Doing a little Karate Kid action herself :)
After the pool, Aunt Georgie showed the girls how to play Go Fish. They were amazed :)
That evening we met up with some of our good friends for dinner that we had made when we lived down in Orlando a couple of years ago. Julie and Stephen also have twin girls the same age as ours. It was SOOOOOO fabulous seeing them and their sweet girlies! And yes, ours look GIGANTOR compared to theirs!
Me and Julie!
The daddys! AND Julie and Stephen's youngest daughter, Claire :)
After dinner and playing at the park, we headed to Jeremiah's for some AMAZING icecream....
Sweet girlies :)
Such a fun first day! Day 2 is Disney Day!! coming soon!!
