Greetings from Florida!

We have been here for almost a week now and I have enjoyed every single minute. Yes, it is humid, but it feels more tolerable to me than the 100+ weather Vegas is having right now. Ugh. We can sit out on the screened in porch, turn on the fans and it is comfortable. I am ready to pack my bags and move down here!

We have been to the beach almost every single day. Having grown up with the fresh water of Lake Michigan, I am not a fan of salt water, but I am loving being in and near the water! Yesterday it was super calm (no waves) and we could see the bottom of the ocean enough to dive for shells. Sarah and I hung out around a reef and spotted a school of these cool white fish and some random turquoise ones. It was so cool (you don't see fish in Lake Michigan)! This is Ella's first trip to the beach and after some hesitation with the "ucky" sand, she is now a champion sand castle builder and shell collector.

We have also been busy helping grandpa learn to do laundry and use the computer (after getting rid of 283 viruses!!!). I am on edge because the house is full of crystal, porcelian, and gorgeous picture frames all at a 2 year old level. Add to that a gorgeous tile far only a plant pot (with the plant in it) has been broken.

The camera cord is at home, but some pics Mitch took with the phone are on Grandpa's computer....

Hoping your 4th of July was drier than ours!

You two and your camera [parts]. I think instead of coming in January, I better be there when the baby comes. I'll put myself on camera duty - to make sure we HAVE pictures AND can share them. :)

Actually, I purposely left the cord at home. I debated and then decided to just wait until I could download them on my computer.

With 283 viruses, the last thing this computer needs is more pictures!
