Keys Trip and Other Fun Stuff

Last weekend, we headed down for the Keys for a quick three-day trip.  We took the boat on the three hour ride down to Tavernier, stayed at one of the bayside resorts and chilled all weekend long.  The boys went fishing every morning while the kids, Rachel, Nini (Rachel's mom) and I all hung out by the pool.  We didn't wear makeup.  We wore tshirts and grungy shorts (whenever we weren't in our bathing suits) and we grilled out every night.  As Lallie put it "this is SO nice and SO relaxing."  We absolutely hated to leave.  BUT, we only live three hours away, so I think we'll be seeing a lot of the Keys in our future!
Fishing off the pier.  The kids fished as well and caught quite a bit of little needle nose fish and rainbow fish.
Lauren and Lallie.   These kids are three peas-in-a-pod!
It is impossible to get all three of them to look at the camera at the same time!
The resort we stayed at had the most beautiful spot for watching the sunset.  The kids were in awe!
Yay!!!  See you tomorrow sun!  Lauren was waving.
Lallie kept getting closer to the ground as the sun set, she was following it.

Adorable and fun to look at, but when they hang out on your porch and poop all day long.....not so fun!
Rachel skiing.  I tried, goodness knows I tried!  I'm one of the hopeless ones :(
Hanging out in the hammock for some mommy/daughter time while Daddy was out fishing for our dinner.

On the way home, one tuckered out (and slight pink from chlorine) little Lallie!

Back at home, it was back to our usual Princess routine.  Note: I'm getting ready to cut her hair to shoulder length.  Another inner battle for me, but it must be done.  It's too long and stringy.

My little fairy flying down the street.

Looking for the seven bunnies wesaid were hanging out in the backyard.  I had to go hop in front of the
window to clear up this little fib!  :-)

Playing with Granny over Skype.
Have a great week y'all!


  1. I wish I lived that close to the Keys! How fun!!!!

  2. Good times. Summer has to be my favorite season. There's just too much fun to be had in the summer. However, living in Florida, you must have a longer summer and warmer water. One of the things I don't like about Colorado is there's really no natural water spots to swim in without fear of hypothermia. It's all snow melt, or ice cold. Wet suits a must for water sports around here.
    I think Lallie's hair is just so baby fine that even if you cut it, it's still going to get tangled. Maybe if you put it in braids or pony tails all the time it won't get so tangled or stringy. Just suggesting. I love her pretty long hair.

  3. I just discovered your lovely blog. I'm just new into blogging this year & have put together a daily blog on design, fashion, food, travel and anything pretty.
    I had a lot of fun putting it together maybe you would like to check it out if you have a spare minute.

  4. What a fun trip! Love all of Lallie's cute outfits.

    P.S. The Pink Tutu is now Posh Peach! It was time for a change :)

  5. What a cute family! I enjoy your blog
