Olivia's Florida Vacation

This past weekend Brian, Olivia, and I all took a trip to Florida to visit my aunt, uncle, and grandparents. The last time my grandparents saw Olivia in person was almost a year ago to the day and Olivia has certainly grown and changed a lot since then!

We left on Friday morning and got to Florida in time for dinner. Saturday we spent time together with the family, found a local dog park, and went swimming. Sunday passed similarly. We left Monday morning to come home.

I was so amazed at how gentle Olivia was with my fragile diabetic grandpa. It's like she knew he needed her to be calmer in order for her to interact with him.

My aunt who is very choosy when it comes to whose dogs she likes absolutely loved Olivia (they'd met before at our house) and even let Olivia on her furniture.

Here are some of the things Olivia got to do this weekend!

  • swim
  • go on several golf cart rides (that's one of the ways the residents get around the gated community where my family lives)
  • play with her relatives
  • go to a "town center" that was western themed
  • take a photo with mommy in a wooden head cut out
  • go to a new dog park
  • watch TV with her great aunt and uncle on their couch
  • go on vacation with mommy and daddy
  • eat at a McDonalds
