Pool Time!

Orlando was hot -- even for those living there, it was hot for being so early in the year. The temps were in the high 80s or 90+ every day! I must say, I loved it -- the sun felt so nice and warm (yes, it was a long winter and chilly spring in Nebraska).

Firstly, a little public service reminder to those who might not be used to working or playing in the heat. Be sure to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Drink lots of water and Gatorade, eat bananas, suck down packets of mustard, drink ice tea (why yes, I'll have a long island ice tea, thank you very much)! PSA done - on to the story. We visited the parks in the mornings and usually returned to the hotel in the early afternoon for . . . you guessed it - pool time!

Don't be scared - there are no pictures of moi in a swimsuit! The first day, we spent most of the time at the sandy beach pool. It was crowded and noisy and fun! However, Miss M soon realized that sand gets everywhere and so opted for a non-sandy beach pool the rest of the time. The other pool was very relaxing, refreshing and quiet -- perfecto after a busy day at the parks!

She thought she might have forgotten how to swim, but she did great, though swimming lessons are still on tap for summer. We shared the pool with these most adorable little creatures who followed their Momma (or she followed them) everywhere!

It feels like we will never have pool weather in MI right now. I'm envious of your gorgeous FL weather. What a great trip.

I just love Miss Maddy's swim suits!

And, that picture of mom and babies is priceless.

She is ADORABLE!! Love the poses in the suits! We had the same weather when we went- in late October- when it was supposed to be cooler. HIGH 90's every day. Next time I'm going in January/February!! :)

It looks like Maddy had soooo much fun swimming after the parks. I love, love, love her new suits! You should have brought some of that nice weather back with you. This chilly spring stinks!
