Wordful Wednesday {secret trips}

I went to Florida for a week and didn’t tell you.

I know, I know but we do it for security reasons. There is just something about announcing hey I’m leaving my house unattended for a week that doesn’t sit right so I’m telling you know. So if I seemed a bit stressed or didn’t post as much- that’s why. Of course a few of you caught the location stamp on some of my facebook posts πŸ˜‰

I still have so many photos to edit and this is one of my favorites from the trip. Above is the back view of this photo. This is Nervous Nellies in Fort Myers. One of our favorite go to restaurants down there! I actually just ordered a canvas print of it as a gift.

While we were down there we went to Sanibel Island Beach. My all time favorite beach and my little spot of perfect out there.

Of course while I was snapping away he managed to grab a handful of sand before hubs or I was able to stop him. Surprisingly he only had to do this once to learn it didn’t taste good.

Sawyer was seriously the best baby ever (as always) but he sat on this chair for three hours straight completely happy.

And spent an hour of it just like this-

He also loved the little makeshift play are the boys made for him for some sun free time. Isn’t he precious?

Of course I would bring a santa suit to the beach…

It made for a great Christmas Card photoshoot!

I actually had the umbrella and people edited out thanks to Brandy from Loudmouth Photography. If you ever have a photo you can’t get to edit properly she’s the girl to hire πŸ™‚

This is another favorite from the trip. It’s of the Fort Myers Pier. A bunch of clouds came in and stole my sunset….

  32. Looks like you had a great time. Such great photos. I can’t believe your little guy sits so well for that length of time. I was noticing that he is starting to look a bit bigger than Harold. Was wondering what he weighs.

    Anyhow, I love the Christmas pictures, especially loving the expressions on Sawyer’s face in the individual ones.

  33. Cutest baby ever! All of your kids are adorable! &I totally get it about not announcing you’re leaving, we do the same.

  34. Robin (Masshole Mommy) says

    Haha – I love the little santa on the beach πŸ™‚ So cute.

  35. These are great shots!

  36. do you realize your last watermarks say “momPotted” instead of “momspotted”? now that’s a different blog entirely!

  37. Great pictures, but that last one. Creepy!!!! DON’T EAT THE SAND SAWYER! YUKY!!! I bet he made one hell of a face after that! I totally love Florida and I still haven’t made it to swim in the ocean. It’s on my list to do before I die. Thanks for sharing. I so wish I could meet little Sawyer. Maybe one day we’ll go to the same convention or something. πŸ™‚ Until then have a great day & hugs to the boys!
