Florida Trip - Day 2

On Sunday we got to have a wonderful visit with Great-Grandma and Aunt Sharon.  We had lunch with them and had the best time catching up.  They couldn't believe how big the kids had gotten.  The last time Grandma had seen Hudson was when she came up for Gigi's 60th birthday.  He was so tiny then and this visit he was running around, playing peek-a-boo and chasing their dogs.

Grandma gave each of the kids a little gift with lots of goodies to keep them entertained throughout the rest of our trip, which was so thoughtful of her!

We wished we could have stayed longer, but Hudson was fading fast and getting ready for a nap so we said our goodbyes and then headed off to the hotel we were staying at the remainder of our trip.  On the way we did a drive-by past the house we lived in when we lived in Orlando.  Robby and I thought Handley would like to see where she first lived.  We appreciated it more than she did, but I'm glad we drove by.

The kids loved getting to the hotel and getting to walk around and explore.  It was so warm and nice that we took them swimming that evening.  There was a lazy river and a water slide, so the girls were in heaven.  Hudson wasn't too sure about it at first, but quickly warmed up to the idea of the water.

We had dinner by the pool that night and laughed as we saw two ducks start swimming in the pool.  Harper said they were Donald and Daisy!

Hudson had been stuffy all day, but still seemed happy and fine.  However, he woke up that night with a fever and was up for about 3 hours before I could finally get him back to sleep.  Needless to say the entire time I was just thinking about the fact that the next day was our one and only day at Disney, but I wasn't about to let a little lack of sleep stop us from having fun.
