Scenes from Our Weekend | Miami Vacation

We packed up the family in Pensacola and took our first trip to Miami since having baby Madelyn.  My oldest brothers two kids live in Miami, so we were headed to visit them! We were all really excited about the weekend because it was the first time that all five grandchildren would be getting together.  It was a short trip, but we all had a great time.  

We stayed in Coconut Grove at the Ritz and spent a lot of our time there.  We packed up the kids on Saturday though and headed to Jungle Island which is the zoo of Miami.  It was crazy how warm and humid it still was for middle of November!  I had Madelyn in the Solly wrap and we were sweating our butts off!  

Sunday we had breakfast, a little pool time and a photo shoot with the kids in their matching pajamas.  The weekend flew by.  It was all about getting the kids together and watching how much fun they have these days and I would say we certainly got to accomplish that.  It definitely makes me sad that they can't be together all the time.  The 3 boys are all within 9 months of each other and they are so cute all together.  I know it will only just keep getting better too! 

My Mom bought all the kids matching Hanna Anderson PJ's and we were able to snap a few pics of the kids all together.  They were so sweet.  Trying to wrangle 5 kids under 5 is always a challenge, but they did pretty darn good.

We will all be in separate places for Christmas this year, so it was such a treat to spend this time together.  And now I can't believe it's Thanksgiving week.  I'm off to go figure out the best recipe for the cornbread stuffing that I'm in charge of...Anyone have a favorite???
