My whole family lives in Florida (yes I am the weirdo that left LOL!). We usually go down at some point during the summer and definitely over Christmas and of course a visit to the beach is a must.

loving3boys1girl said...

This collection is adorable! I can't wait to get my hands on it! My favorite summer activity would be watching my kids swim while I sit back and read a book or magazine. Its wonderful that they're big enough (its an above ground pool so not very deep!) for me to just supervise instead of having to go in. I prefer my pool time after they've gone to bed so its calm!
