I've been collecting seashells for as long as I can remember. From east to west, coast to coast, and shore to shore, I always find a treasure to keep, and adore.

The Silence Is Deafening

Oh yes, yes it is!

How I miss the chatter, laughter, and giggles of Kandi, Gwynie, and Brady. Our house just doesn't feel quite the same without them. I could be doing many things, but all I am doing is missing them. Bree and Zachy miss them too, and refused treats all day Sunday, and just moped around missing the kids.

We did have a blast while they were here!
The weather was wonderful the first few days they were here, and they were brave enough to swim in what I consider a cold pool!
And then the temps dropped and it was so cold in Florida.

But it warmed back up in time to go to LegoLand!

They really liked this Lego tourist outside of the Lego Store.
He was pretty cool!
They went to driving school, drove on the test track, and got their driver's licenses!

This is a full size car made with Lego's...very impressive!

This giant octo was pretty impressive, too!

This is one ride I didn't go on with them....but I did ride the others, and had a screaming good time!

Gwynie loves legos and has been building with them for a few years now.
She really enjoyed MiniTown.
She thought this ship wreck was awesome...
and the fisherman reeling in a mermaid! It really went up and down, too!
I don't know how you could see everything here in a day, even though it is smaller than Disney or Universal. When you wait in lines to go on rides the time goes by fast! They open at 10am and close at 5pm. Not quite enough time to squeeze it all in. We had characatures of them drawn, too, so that took some time.
They went roller skating with Aunt Shae, and sweet talked us into MyMochi 3 times. It really wasn't hard to talk us into Mochi...we love frozen yogurt!

On one of the cold days we went to see the new Chipmunks movie, Chpwrecked. It was fun, and I'm a fiend for movie theater popcorn.
Psssst....Gwynie is wearing my jacket. She's almost as tall as I am!

We also went to the mall. Brady really wasn't down with shopping for girl clothes, so I let him do the bounce thing.
He really loved this!!!!

They are so very precious! I just had to have a picture of them sleeping!

I'll be back soon with our family tattoos, and my one word for the year!

I sure did miss you all, and I'm trying to make my way around to your blogs!

XO
Del

Missed you too! Looks like it was a wonderful visit and those kids are so adorable. The time just went by too quickly I'll bet. Legoland looks awesome!

Well, all is forgiven now that we see what you traded us off for. It's said that silence is golden. I disagree when it comes to the laughter of our grands. xo

I know what you mean about silence. All eleven of our grandkids were here for Christmas and the oldest is 9, so you can imagine the wonderful chaos that was going on at our house. Yes, it is extremely quiet again. But we already had the oldest over for a sleepover and plan to do one a month until the end of the year. That way we have some one and two time with them.

Sorry, I meant one on two time with them - one kid to two grandparents.

I'm so glad you had a fun visit with your daughter and grandkids! I'm going to remember Legoland! My boys would love to visit...yes, they're all grown but they still love legos! ♥

I didn't know Florida had a LegoLand. I love that octopus!
