Aunt Molly's House!

So we just got back from Flordia visiting Molly. We had so much fun! Shelby loved the airplane rides because there were so many people to stare at and make friends with. She would just stare at them until they would say hi and then she would give them a huge smile and a wave. When we got to Molly's house it was late so we just ate dinner and then chit chatted before bed. Then we hit up the 2nd largest mall in America (what could be better for the Hammons girls?) Shelby totally dug that too. She took a nap in her stroller and then just people watched the rest of the day. Then we went on a boat ride with the Jungle Queen which is basically a ride through the canals where all the filthy rich people build their mansions. Is was so cool, I will totally have a house there when I win the lottery. The island that this boat took us too was... well how should I put this?... SMELLY, STINKY, YUCK! but there was this Mad man that got into a pit with the alligators and told us some facts about them. Which honestly I didn't listen too closely because I was too concerned with him losing a hand or a foot or even his life! He just dragged the alligators out of their water holes and then rode them. NUTS O!!!!! Then we went to the beach and Shelby loved the sand and the waves. I was a little bummed cuz we didn't have swimsuits, but it was still fun. Molly thinks that it is really cool that the first ocean the Shelby ever was at was the Atlantic Ocean. I think it is pretty cool too since that is the ocean that I sailed across on a tall ship a few years ago. (I miss that)
Our return flight was supposed to leave at 7am on Friday which would get us to Vegas at like 9:45am with the time change. But the airline that we flew on is so dumb (don't fly Spirit, they may be cheap, but there is a reason) Anyway we were there in plenty of time, but we missed the flight so we then were going to leave at 8pm. Molly had to drive all the way back to the airport to get us, but it was worth all the frustration because we got to shop and hang out for one more day with Moo. Plus Shelby got an Elmo doll which she is totally in love with. I can't even put it in her crib with her because she would just make out with it and play instead of sleep. Shelby slept almost the whole flight home because the flight wasn't full so we were able to take the car seat on the plane. Turns out that it was a blessing in the end cuz we spent more time with Molly and Shelby got to just sleep. Anyway we got home safe and sound at 11pm on Friday night and Jon was so excited to see his girls. Thanks again Moo, for the fun time. We will have to come out again soon!
