Florida

I’m finally sitting down to publish this post about the family trip we took to Florida in January! We had a wonderful time! There aren’t many pictures of the Disney or Universal Studios parks (too busy having fun!!) I hope we can go once more when Gianna is a few years older, though I know she loved every minute of it all, even at two years old. I’m so thankful for this special time together.

Alexa took this photo with my phone- it is the only one we have of the castle at Disneyworld!

Expedition Everest at Animal Kingdom. Look closely and you can see Braedan (behind the woman with her arm up in the front), Hunter (behind Braedan in the black sweatshirt), one of the twins (behind Hunter), and Chris next to her (dark gray shirt). Landon and the other twin were also on this ride, but I guess we can’t see them (probably sitting next to Hunter and Braedan).

We stopped at the church where Hunter was baptized (St. Leo's in Bonita Springs). He is preparing to make his Confirmation later this spring, so it seemed appropriate to pay a visit to where his life a Christian began!
