Vacation in Bonita Springs, FL

The day after Silas' dedication, my parents and the six of us left for vacation. We went to a place we had never been before, Bonita Springs, FL. We stayed at the Coconut Plantation which was perfect for families. They had so many things on site that the boys didn't seem to run out of things to do the entire time we were there: swimming, beach volleyball, ping pong, art activities, searching for beautiful seashells on the beach, and observing all of the wildlife like rabbits and alligators. Josiah loved the lazy river. Levi enjoyed the kid size pool. Caleb enjoyed the beach. And Silas enjoyed being held continuously all week. We were even able to squeeze in a couple of hours at the outlet mall on our way to the condo. I enjoyed having a full size kitchen so we could cook our own meals and the washer/dryer in the unit so that I could wash clothes and diapers. Thanks Nana and Granddad for a wonderful trip!

Levi wasn't the biggest fan of the beach. He preferred hanging out under the umbrella.

Looks like a fun get-away. Sometimes it surprises me that we are still alike and only went to school together in in point, of all the swimsuits out there, I have the exact same gymboree swim suits and shirts for my three boys this summer! Your boys looked so cute in them on the pretty Florida beach.

Hope you are having a great summer so far!
