Cocoa Beach, Fl

When Spence told me back in October that he had to go to Florida in February for a work convention, it took me all of two seconds to book tickets for the entire family!  So, last week we headed out to Orlando for 11 heavenly days!

One of our best friends from Thunderbird, Pam, and her boyfriend James, came down from New York to spend the week with us, and one sunny day we headed to Cocoa Beach!

Here are my kids responses to being at the beach:

Yes... I had absolutely no idea that my near always happy daughter absolutely DESPISED the sand!  Literally she bawled any time we tried to put her on the sand, it was crazy!

Here is a darling picture of Pam and James.  They make such a cute couple, and they are so sweet to my kids.

I randomly took this picture of Pam and James - and it totally shows how adorable they are with my kids.  James consoling Tallie, and Pam building a sand castle with the goose, too cute!

Man, I love my little kiddos!

Here is a funny story - we were posing for a picture on the pier, when all of a sudden....

... a pelican about took out our heads!

Thanks Pam and James for such a memorable day!

Like Tallie, I too hated the sand when I was her age. My parents tell me every year how funny it was to try and put me in the sand in Bear Lake and how I was scream and scream.

Also, that picture with the pelican is hilarious. You should submit that to Ellen. She does before and after picture on her show and they are hilarious.
