Many of you didn't know that we took a trip! We had to keep it a secret from Gramma Mama because we were surprising her for her birthday last week! For over a month we kept the secret from her: all her girls, Owen, and Rog flew down to Florida to surprise her on her own vacation. It was so much fun! Here Owen is looking out the window of the airplane. :-)
I'm not surprised that Owen was smothered by Auntie Lori and Auntie Julie upon arrival--they have not seen him since September! So much fun to be together again.
Great Gramma Mimi even came over to Orlando from her stay in Cape Coral (visiting Vivi and Jim). She picked Julie, Owen, Rog and me up at the airport--she rented a car and found her way! The joke all weekend was asking her to "act her age." But then again, how many of us "act our age?" :-)

Rog soaked up some sun too!

Grampa Phil was busy teaching Owen to crawl.

We spent some time out on the porch too! So much fun chatting it up and laughing about all the same stories that make up laugh every time we are together.

We ate, smiled, laughed, played a very interesting game of pictionary, laughed even more, and enjoyed all our time together. Friday was a day in the sun, and Saturday was a day at Universal Studios. Too much fun!

Here they are! All covered up and protected from the hot Florida rays.

Owen didn't mind the water, but he was still waking up when I thrust him into the experience.

Here we are at one of the pools...

The fountains and gardens were beautiful and we enjoyed our walks around the grounds. We will miss that place, but we are already in the midst of discussing where our next reunion will be! Owen sure will be the travellin' kid!
