Happy Birthday Nona!!
We travelled to Naples for Nona's 60th Birthday a couple of weeks ago. The weather was great and it was nice to see Steve and Phyllis, Tim and Krista. Steve and Phyllis have been in sunny, warm FL since the day after Christmas and we've only seen Phyllis briefly in January so it was nice for Mason and Marlee to spend some time with Nona and Papaw. We arrived Friday afternoon and left Monday afternoon; just enough time I'm sure for them to get a dose of a toddler and his baby sister!! Mason LOVED it there! He had so much fun swimming and playing with all the fun things at their house and of course there isn't much cooler than the elevator! It was a little harder on Marlee, as we assumed going into it, but we were glad we made the trip and I'm sure Phyllis loved having her whole family there to celebrate her big day! The kids were both perfect for Nona's lovely birthday party. It was early in the evening so Scott and I headed out as soon as the kids woke up from naps. There was a wonderful dinner followed by a sweet toast to the birthday girl from her wonderful hubby. Then we took a family picture outside at sunset for her birthday present and came in to enjoy yummy cake and lots of dancing! It was a great evening and Mason was so excited the table centerpieces were balloons instead of flowers! He brought them all back to the condo!! Daddy enjoyed sucking the helium for everyone!
Here are some of the pictures from our trip. Thanks for putting up with us Nona and Papaw, and for letting us get a few breaks too!! We can't wait till you're back in Marion with us!
Here is Steve speaking and Phyllis with her gorgeous and yummy cake!

Lindsey, Samantha, me and Marlee. We were so excited to see each other again; our last meeting Lindsey had a large tummy and I had a bump forming. Next visit there will be one more baby added to the pic from Scott's other cousins wife Lita!! Any day I'm guessing!! The girls had fun playing together, and I'm told people enjoyed watching them interact! We feel like we know each other so well because we keep up with each others blogs:) So glad we do this!
Here is Mason and Krista (Mason's a boob man!!)
Scottie and Steve.... such good buddies too!
Mason enjoyed giving Nona some early presents!
Yay!!! We can't wait to open our pool now!! Mason did wonderful with his water wings and enjoyed "swimming" by himself! Marlee loved the water and really liked laughing at big brother!
