Key Largo 2012, Part II

On our second full day in Key Largo, Emily and the Miguels got a room at the Marriott, so we went over there for some fun.  It was a cloudy, drizzly day, but that didn't slow us down!  Here are some pics from that part of our trip: 

The boys went out first.  It was Matt's and Gabriel's first time on a jet ski.

While the boys were out, I took Ollie for his first swing on a hammock.

Here is the challenge...

...and the race!

I couldn't pass up the opportunity to show the boys how it's done.

But then Emily, the real expert, showed me how to do it!

Matt got pretty daring and started doing donuts.

Here is what a good time looks like!

Our sweet little sleepyhead.

Ollie's first time in a pool.

"Splishy splashy!  Splishy splashy!"

Time with the godfather.

Here are all of the kids in the shirts I made them.  Don't they look cute?

Silly buds.

On Wednesday, we went to Miami to check out the scene.  Tropical storm Debby was rolling in, so we didn't jump in the ocean, but we did have a great time anyway.

We visited South Beach.

It was a huge beach and would have been perfect on a warmer day.

The boys really enjoyed the windy beach.

Oliver's first time putting his toes in the sand.

Little toesies in the sand for the first time!

G looking for skipping rocks.

Daddy and Baby.

The champion rock skipper in action.

My first two loves.

A happy, frolicking boy.

Some cool art deco architecture.

"Muscle men" on the beach.

What a cool place for a playground!

Miami Ink

Can you spot the parking garage?

We try to have one cultural experience on every vacation, and this was one of the best:  eating fritas on Calle Ocho, in Little Havana.

We saw this place on a television show and were so glad we went.  We knew it was the real deal when we had to order in Spanish!

The famous Eighth Street.
I will post the conclusion to our vacation photos soon, but first there will be an interlude to celebrate two very special boys.
