Week 32 (Aug. 6 – 12)

Since Jonathan has been traveling a good bit, the girls decided to head to Tampa for a week to visit Lucia’s parents/family. Lucia survived managed the flight with the girls just fine with the only incident being Tessa’s screaming for half of it (Tessa is the *perfect* baby except when it comes to traveling. We cannot really complain about that when she is easy going the rest of the time).

32.2: Playing in the Rain
The typical Florida rain storm greeted us on our first full day in Florida. Since there was no thunder or lightning, the girls played in the rain under the lanai for a bit.

Cousins C and J thought Chelsea games on Lucia’s phone were pretty cool.

The girls ‘helped’ make a yummy breakfast with cousins, including their favorite — pancakes (with soy milk) and bacon.

32.3: Coleman Cousins
We made sure to get a cousin picture since they were all together (for the first time since Tessa was born). In the outtake, Tessa had just spit-up and the kids were reacting to that.

32.4: The Baby Holder
Tessa got lots of lovin’ from her cousin J. Whenever Tessa was awake, J was always very eager to hold her or play with her.  And you know that Tessa loved the individual attention. J has always loved babies, ever since he was a toddler.

32.4: Fishing Wands
Prior to our trip, Mallory had asked Gran if she had any fishing “wands” for her to use at the pond at Gran’s house. Gran found the perfect fishing poles for the girls — small, pink and princess-themed! Mallory practiced “fishing” in the pool and figured out how to cast pretty quickly.

With the excitement of having cousins to play with, naps did not always go as planned.

32.6: Beach Babes
We made a quick trip to the beach (cut short by a big thunderstorm). The bigger girls loved digging in the sand but we did not venture into the water too much (the shore was lined with seaweed so it made getting into the water not as appealing). Tessa’s first beach trip was spent under a golf umbrella, trying to shield her from the sun since she is still too young for sunscreen. Because of the wind, she ended up being covered in sand.
