FLA day 1

Hello from sunny Florida! Our flight down was a jumble of Murphy's Law, but we made it! Actually the Murphy's Law part was getting to the airport. Traffic and more traffic. We get to the airport and have to park on the roof of the garage and then walk 15 minutes to the terminal. We stand in line, check our bag and then stand in security. At security they nicely tell us to go back to the desk because when I printed out our boarding passes from home, the girls' names weren't on them. Back to that line, new boarding passes, back to security line to bathroom line to Dunkin Donut's line directly to boarding line. Thankfully, we got a free row of 3 seats in the last row of the plane! 

Love people watching on the plane. Don't you wonder about some of the shady characters that get on a plane? We were right next to the bathroom, so we got to see our fair share. Finally we arrived here...

Whoops, not the jungle. B loves giraffes and this giraffe happened to be at the airport. Then we arrived here, 
and went out to dinner with Grandma, Grandpa and Daddy (who got here the day before). We were enjoying the outside sunshine waiting for our pizza when it started to rain. Not before I got these cute pictures, though!

When we got home after having the best pizza and Coldstone Creamery for dessert, I challenged K to jump into the pool with only her undies on. I bet her $10 and she did it, much to my surprise! Then B jumped in as well because 'monkey see, monkey do'. 

And BTW, I am mooching some wifi off the neighbor to the left because I pick up the signal on the left side of the house. Thank you neighbor!
