Vacation 2012

We had a wonderful trip to Florida for vacation.  Stayed at Disney's Vero Beach Resort which was right on the beach.  Got to see some fresh sea turtle tracks and nests as well as learn about the turtles in a presentation given at the resort.  Had a great room with a full kitchen which made our meals easy.  Both girls slept great as did the parents. Catherine really out did herself planning all of the stuff that needed to come with us which made our trip really fantastic.  We took Catherine's birthday to drive over to Magic Kingdom which could not have gone better.  Caitlyn slept about 1/2 an hour in the stroller while we were at the park during the afternoon and Elizabeth had a wonderful time having lunch with the princesses. The entire trip was perfect from beginning to end and really couldn't have gone better. This will always be one of the most special events of our lives and the time we got to spend together as a family is irreplaceable.

Christmas Photo Shoot

We took the girls to see Santa and were so relieved that Caitlyn loved him! She tends to cry when anyone is holding her other than us, so it was a big surprise. We took some photos of the girls in their Christmas dresses and wanted to share them here. Caitlyn will turn one in 2 days and is walking a few feet at a time now. She is so proud of herself when she walks several steps. Life is so much fun now that Elizabeth and Caitlyn are playing together.

The State Fair

Its that time of year again...the State Fair!! We stopped and saw the animals first before heading to ride the rides. Elizabeth and Caitlyn had a wonderful day. We stayed out all day and both girls didn't skip a beat.

Elizabeth has reached the magical height of 36" which allowed her to ride the rides all by herself! Ms. Independent was quite adamant that she ride them alone! Her parents were more than happy to oblige.

Catilyn got to ride her first ride, and she loved it!!

Elizabeth made friends with Zack on a couple of rides. They had a blast together, Dadda wan't too thrilled with her making friends with a boy.

Caitlyn finally passed out after several hours of watching her sister have a blast on the rides

Pretty soon, the kiddie rides weren't enough action for Elizabeth, so she rode a couple of rides with Mom and Dad that went really fast.
