nothing to show - part deux

and with derek, came the sun and warmer weather! since his arrival, we have had beautiful weather...for the most part. i must say that prior to this trip, i had forgotten how difficult it can be to get out of the house with an infant. between naps and eating, it doesn't leave too much time for outings. yesterday, derek took andrew to play putt putt, and my mom and i headed to the pool, while my dad stayed upstairs with jacob who was napping. it was SO nice to spend time with my mom, without having to answer any of those inevitable cries of "MOMMY I NEED..." as if that wasn't relaxing enough, my mom took me for a pedicure in the afternoon. man, i could certainly get used to this...sunshine and pedis with my mom :) 

this morning, we all headed down to the beach, until jacob got cranky and needed a nap. derek took him back to the apartment, while the rest of us enjoyed some more sunshine. andrew played for a while by himself in the sand (he was really loving it!). the skies began to turn dark, rain was in the forecast and lunch was on the horizon, so we decided to pack it up and head inside. well, wouldn't you know it...the skies cleared and the rain never came! derek, my mom and i took andrew to gumbo limbo nature center. this evening we enjoyed a nice home cooked meal (my famous ziti) together. not sure what the day holds for tomorrow, but i'm sure of one will be FUN! it's our last day here before we head back to the cold on wednesday! pics to come...
