Later in the week we headed down to Venice to stay a couple nights at Grammy and Papa’s new villa in Venice. It was our first trip to Venice Beach so we were really excited to check out the area. Although, the kids only really wanted to play in the awesome pool. Can’t say that I blame them. It was really a great pool complex.
They had a little splash area which I was sure the kids wouldn’t like. But, to my surprise they all loved it. Especially Kayla.
Even Papa joined in on the fun.
My three little water babies.
Believe it or not Kayla actually begged Sydney to do THIS to her.
Isaiah really had a great time with his cousins. It was awesome to see how quickly and great they all got along.
Later Daddy was able to join the party and take his turn with the kiddos in the pool. He was really impressed to see that Sydney was able to freestyle swim all the way across the pool. And this was no small pool.
Once we convinced the kids that pool time was over we started walking back to the villa. Our walk was disrupted by some loud whooping noises. We carefully walked over to where the noises were and spotted these guys. I believe they were sandhill cranes which are local Florida residents of this area.
Here’s the whole gang!
Soon after arriving back at the villa I snapped this shot. I think its pretty safe to say we wore these kids out.
