Day 5...do we really have to leave?!

So Monday morning came and yes, we had to go home.  Or at least START making our way in that direction. *wink*  We made it to the lobby area of the resort we stayed at and took some pictures.

We had to do a silly picture after making them pose for a serious one
There was this great photo op area just set up and ready to use *wink* and so we did!
Christopher
Emily
Gabriel
Kayleah
Sarah
Isaac
Kaleb
And Liah...this is the BEST one we got *wink*
Again, we had to give them a silly one

If you're wondering how we got the kids to cooperate so well with all these posed pictures...here's how:
Notice Liah in the background ready for another bite.

So after we took all the pictures we could at Splash it was time to go.  We weren't quite ready to say goodbye to the ocean so we packed up the vans and headed to the pier for some more pictures.







After taking a few shots of the pier we tried to get some pictures with the kids...but the sun was a little bright and so the kids were less than excited to pose *wink*

Liah wanted NOTHING to do with pictures

The candid pictures went a little better
Emily

Gabriel and Isaac
Kaleb, hiding from the sun


So after posing in the hot sun we were THIRSTY and hungry...and if you're thirsty where should you go?! MARGARITAVILLE!
this is the boat we ate in
How cool was it to eat in the boat?! very cool.
There was a lady on stilts that made fun balloons for everyone.
Captain Gabriel
Christopher chose a palm tree hat
Emily's twisty hat

Isaac's sword

Kaleb's hat

Kayleah got a hat AND a bow and arrow *wink* the balloon lady didn't hear what she REALLY wanted so she got two.
Sarah's hat was REALLY cool!  Super tall and twisty.
...and can you se Liah's little dog in this picture? it was super cute too!
And now the lady that made it ALL possible...

After we ate we decided it was finally time to head home *sniff sniff* but this time we had to stop mid way during the trip and stay at a hotel.  It was pretty late at night and most of the kids were asleep in the cars.  When we had them come into the hotel they just crashed.  It was funny.  Liah decided that she no longer needed to sleep in a pack-n-play and she wanted to sleep next to Emily *smile* BUT she wouldn't sleep until she had her book.  So Jenn had to go dig through the van and find her book.  She was the only one awake while everyone else had crashed within mins!  As soon as Jenn gave the book to her she smile, rolled over and went to sleep. Too Cute!

Isaac, Gabriel, Christopher and kaleb crashed!
Sarah, Liah, Emily and Kayleah across the bottom.

On our way OUT of Florida we stopped and took this picture
So really we were saying goodbye *sniff sniff*
...but don't you worry! WE'LL BE BACK!
