Florida in November

November 13 Danny and I left for 10 days in Florida. Dan joined us several days later and we left Danny with my parents and went to Dan's convention in Orlando. Here we are in the airport. Notice that Danny doesn't have any pants on. We had a hard trip. He had roseola, which is a virus with a full body rash and fever. He messed his clothing so I struggled through the airport with a miserable plagued looking baby. Once we got on the plane, it was the bumpiest flight of my life.
I was so thankful when we got to my parent's beautiful house. They bought tons of treats for Danny including these cereal straws

The beach is less than a mile from their house, and it was so beautiful and warm our first day

Danny and Pappy had a great time playing in the hot tub
Every morning they feed the fish
Danny really took to my Dad right away. They enjoyed watching cartoons together

Danny stayed with my parents when Dan and I went to Orlando for his convention. We had the chance to visit two very nice restaurants for dinner. I'm so lame and ordered spaghetti while everyone else was eating seafood and steak. Wasn't I surprised when I got 22ounces of meat.

We stayed at a really beautiful place, I don't remember the name, but it is owned by a football player
The four days went fast, and before we knew it, we were driving back to my parent's house to get Danny

It was nice to have some quality "hug time" with Danny when we got back from Orlando

He must have been really tired because he was actually laying with me

Picking oranges from the "ball tree". Danny loved picking "balls" from the tree and then eating them

The oranges felt hard but they were delicious

You know we look alike. Just admit it.

Playing hide and seek

Playing the drums at Sam's Club. I really think that Danny has serious music skills

Danny enjoyed throwing the ball into the cold water and watching us struggling to get it
Trying to keep his balance on a slanted beach after throwing the ball. His large gut almost pulled him over forward
The water was very chilly, but he didn't seem to mind at all
Who dresses their child like this in public? An unbuttoned onesie, pajama top, and a hat that only sits on the top of his head.

Danny was having a wonderful time running up and down the beach
He was moving pretty fast (check out his sweet tux tails)

Danny looks like such a big boy with his "far away dreamy look"
splashing in the hot tub
the water was the perfect temperature
Danny did wonderful on the flight home. It was a very late night, and we were all tired, but I couldn't have asked for him to be any better. It was a great trip and we are already counting the days till Mom and Dad come up to PA for Christmas.

Danny and I were out first playing pass the pumpkin
Kenzie, Ben, and Kaden passed that pumpkin fast (I think they did some pre-game training)

What a cute birthday boy
