Random Fact Friday - Vacay Edition

It’s rando-fact Friday – vacation style!

Our mini vacay to my parents’ house in Clearwater this week was a great one.  We had a nice time and did lots of fun stuff.  Jillian was exhausted from all the fun and slept all the way home on Wednesday and then slept in until 9:30 on Thursday morning – craziness!  Here’s what we did.

The Mall
We went to the mall on Monday so that Jillian could get her year and a half pictures taken at Picture People.  I have a love/hate relationship with Picture People.  It is always crowded, they are always running like an hour behind and it’s just a frustrating process altogether.  BUT, they take a good picture, and at the end of the day, when you have a picture like this, you just can’t be mad.

This is a picture of a picture that we purchased.

We got some really good ones of Jillian this go round, so it was all worth it in the end.  I always say I’m never going back there, but I’m sure I will for her 2 year photos.

While we were at the mall Jillian got to hang out with her friend Emma!  Her and her dad showed up at the mall because they knew we’d be there, so we had a blast hanging out with them. She even helped Jillian during her photo shoot. 

Jillian and Emma = BFFs

SO cute!

The Pool
Jillian has grown to love the pool.  We spent a lot of time outside while we were home and she had a blast playing in the water. 

And with the flowers.  That's her new favorite word, but she pronounces it "flow-wow."

The Beach
Jillian was introduced to the beach on our trip to Sanibel back in June, so we figured it was time for her to get back to the beach.  We went out to Honeymoon Island and let her roam free.  It was so cute watching her run around, but it was the most stressful outing ever because she literally just wanted to take off into the water.  The horror. 

When she wasn’t taking off towards the surf she was either saying “Hiiiii!” to passersby or running towards the dunes. 

Stressful, but adorable.

Mom and Dad LOVED having her at their house

Me Time
I had had grand plans to have a little “me time” while there.  That didn’t happen and that’s okay.  I really wanted to get out and go for a walk/run while I was home to compensate for the fact that I was missing T25, however that didn’t happen.  Jillian wasn’t too keen on the sleeping situation at Grandma and Grandpa’s – she woke up at 5am on Monday (she never does that, usually sleeps til 7:30 at least) and on Monday night she would not go into her pack n play to save her soul.  So she slept in my bed.  Oy.  

We have never ever let Jillian sleep in our bed before.  I don’t even know how people do that.  She moved, she kicked, she snored, I literally had to sleep horizontally on the bed, at the foot of the bed, so that she had room to roll around.  It was not good.  Same routine on Tuesday night.  For real.  Needless to say I got little sleep and never had the opportunity to get up and get in a morning workout.  Ah well, it’s vacation right?  I never workout on vacay anyway.

And that’s it.  We had an awesome time, if you can’t tell from the pics. 

How about you ... How was your week?  Any good plans for the weekend?
