I Believe in Magic

Since I really didn't blog through the whole spring semester, I'll do a little catch up.  We did a cross-country trek over Spring Break.  We stopped in Nashville to visit Ben's sister and her family.  The kids got lots of great cousin time, including celebrating Avery's 2nd birthday.

Cianne was lucky enough to be on top of the dog pile with Uncle Brad.

Cohen slimed Aunt Rachel's shoulder.  She's officially a part of his inner circle now.

I "wore" this guy all over southeast America.  

Then we went here, and let me tell ya there really is something magic in the water at DisneyWorld.  We had so much fun!  I can't wait to go back. 

Then we spent a day at Universal's Islands of Adventure to visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.  This place would be super cool if it weren't for the 10 million people that Universal wasn't equipped to handle.  It was so crowded and definitely lacking the Disney magic.  But Corben still loved it, which was why we went. 

The kids ended up spending most of their time it the Seuss area.  They still had a great time despite the LONG lines.

Then we went to Ponte Vedra Beach, FL.  I spent most of my time in the shade with this guy.

Ben had a conference at the Sawgrass resort.  My kids can now say they've "golfed" at the Sawgrass.  (This may or may not mean anything to you.  It didn't to me until we went there.)

We checked out bikes at the resort, and Cohen went for his first ride.

 I didn't spend as much time on the beach as I would've liked, but it was a little overwhelming with all three kiddos by myself (...picture sand all over the baby's face while I'm trying to nurse, Corben wandering further into the ocean waters without an adult, and Cianne having an accident all at the same time...not my best motherhood moment).  But I did manage to get this priceless shot.

What I wouldn't give to be there today!

You're right. That shot is perfect! That was totally worth the beach nursing.
