We'd spent the previous week on the West Coast of Florida, why not try out the East Coast? We spent a morning on the shore near Cocoa Beach. The sand wasn't as lovely as Destin's (I'm pretty sure no place is better) but the water was warmer. And it was plenty fun! Take a look:

We played in my parent's pool every day during our visit. Since there was no Sean around, I was being ultra aware of kids at all times, so I didn't take much time for photos. But, you know, some.
Aw, sometimes it's no fun being short.
Liam and Dash got so comfortable in the water. If they had their floaties on, they'd "swim" from wall to wall.
And they got real comfortable putting their faces in the water. In fact, we shed our floaties, dropped pool weights in the shallow end of the pool, and Liam and Dash would go get them. I was totally impressed.
Grey would mostly hang by the stairs or halfway pretend to get in at various points down the wall. He was adamant about me not touching him when he got in the water so I did a lot of very close hovering. I'll tell you one thing, the pool with kids is not one bit relaxing.

We took a visit to Orlando's Science Center. The first area we explored, featuring Curious George, was "proudly brought to you by the Minnesota Children's Museum." Ha! Travel across the country to get a piece of home.
We saw a cool movie about Monarch butterflies who all migrate to a tiny piece of mountain in Mexico.
It was in a domed theater, so... that was cool.
Grey did pretty well until the last few minutes, spending most of the time pointing out the butterflies, which were plentiful.
Now we've got Excavator Liam,
and Excavator Grey.
"Watch out, Orlando, this storm's coming at YOU!"

Florida tends to get little mini rain storms, so when we started getting dripped on while sidewalk-chalking, the kids stayed out to enjoy it.
Turn on the shower and Grey freaks out but water from the sky is juuust fine.
Liam had a run in with a drippy corner.
Playin in the runoff.
Time to air dry. My parents live at the end of a pretty empty cul de sak so the kids had the run of the area.
Could you see the steam come off the road? It be hot. Steamy hot.
