Our last week in Florida we tried to soak up and enjoy every last minute of every last day at the beach.

It was hard to say goodbye to this...

But our two months were up.
And we started our journey home.
This picture was taken during the first hour of the first day on the road...which is about how long our smiles lasted.

Let's just say it was a lot more fun to drive to Florida and into the warmth than it was to do the reverse.
We made it home in 4 days and I pretty much don't want to talk about it.
Except for the night that we stayed with our great friends the Johnstons!! Thanks guys, we loved spending time with you again!!!

Anyways. We survived (with our sanity hanging by a thread, thanks mainly to Avery).
And as sad as I had been to leave Florida, I was excited when we drove into Rochester : ) And I was downright giddy when I walked through my house. And seeing my friends again? Well, I could have kissed them all (oh wait I think I did)!

So we are home. And life is still good.

But those two months in Florida were special.
So grateful for the time we got to spend there as a family and for all the memories we made!
