And of course, here's my little cutie-patootie. I thought she would be afraid, but she wasn't -- at all -- to the point that we couldn't put her down because she would have walked right over to the side of the boat. And I love this one of Isabella and my dad. She probably stayed with him most of the cruise -- such a Papa's girl.

Last of the beach pics
And then, these are from our last evening at the beach. I have no idea WHAT Isabella is doing or where she learned these poses -- I promise I did not ask her to pose like that. She's such a little nut. I'm sure its somewhere in Cinderella. :) And Amelia, the best way to get her to smile now is to sing "If you're happy and you know it...." she automatically smiles and starts clapping her hands. I wish Amelia was smiling in this picture of her on the little boardwalk, but she's still so cute. Actually getting her to stand still here was a miracle in itself, she kept running from one end to the other, just stopping when we would say look, theres a turtle or look there's an .....
Even with her silly faces, look at those dimples?!? And here's a cute one of my niece, Olivia. She was sitting next to me for alot of the cruise so I was taking pictures of her and she leaned right into the camera and smiled -- it was so cute.
.... and lots of them. :)
These first ones are pictures from our evening at Harbour Town. We went there to eat and then got on a sightseeing cruise to see dolphins. The kids loved seeing the dolphins and as you can see above, they let you take pictures of the kids "driving" the boat. Isabella really thought she was driving. She hopped up on that seat and started steering back and forth -- praise God she wasn't really driving or we all would have been sea sick. :) And in the picture to the left, I was hurrying to get a picture of my girls before we got on the boat and I mentioned something to Isabella about wanting a picture of her with the lighthouse that is on her skirt, so of course she ignored me and pointed up at the lighthouse instead -- yeah, sorry baby couldn't get you both in the picture.
This picture really cracks me up, I decided that maybe I could get a picture of my girls with the lighthouse in the distance, but then the boat made a loud noise so I have a few pictures of Isabella with a similar look on her face, trying to smile for mommy, but more of a terrified smile of that noise. This one was the funniest. :) Thankfully she didn't stay scared too long, as exhibited in these pictures below where she is being my little silly girl
...alligator! We saw lots of alligators that week, or maybe the same alligator lots of times, but either way the kids were thrilled to see them. Last year we only saw the alligator a couple times (well, I didn't see them at all) but lots of turtles. And that's it, that concludes my beach pictures --- or at least I think so, for now. :)
