Pretty Flowers - Brina and Karlie (March 2006, 13 Months)c

Loving the flowers and petals! Brina in the purple and Karlie in the pink.

Today’s Flashback Friday takes us back to when the girls were just over a year old.  They loved exploring new things.  Now that they were constantly on the move they were getting into all kinds of things around the house.  Thankful for these little blessings and for the opportunity to watch them grow up.

So Natural - Brina and Karlie (March 2006, 13 Months)c

Their smiles always brighten my days!

Sweet and Silky - Brina and Karlie (March 2006, 13 Months)c

 Love their cute little pinchable and kissable cheeks!

Beautiful view and we almost had the pool to ourselves!

During our time at the Swan & Dolphin Resorts the kids had to check out their pools.  Yes, they have several pools and a playground.  We had a blast swimming and splashing around in their pools on the hottest day.  The girls can spend hours swimming around.

A pool with a waterfall.  How awesome is that!?

Hanging out by the waterfall.

P1380684c

This pool was much quieter, but one of their favorites because it was easier to dive for items since it was less crowded.  That’s our hotel in the back ground.

Brina getting her fairy dust!

At the Bippity Boppity Boutique downtown Disney you can stop by and get pixie fairy dust for free.  We were at the store looking around and walking by the boutique so stopped to have the girls gets some fairy dust.  They did a cute saying as the girls got the fairy dust sprinkled into their hair.  The fairy dust is basically glitter.  I don’t know if it was a special type of glitter or if the heat from running around in the hot sun all day, but that glitter stayed on for awhile.

Fun times playing miniature golf!

While in Orlando the girls and I got tickets to play miniature golf.  The golf course was across the street from our resort so it was a short walk.  We went to Disney’s Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf.  It was a lot of fun playing together even though we lost 3 balls.  We quickly realized that we would not be playing any professional miniature golf soon with our crazy scores, but was a great time.

It was a warm day, but they had several courses with shooting water that seem to help cool it off.  After playing 18 rounds of miniature golf we headed back to the hotel for lunch in the room then out to the pools to have some more fun.  Thankful for some time with the kids.

Brina was the only one that didn’t loose a ball.   I lost mine on the first hole in the bushes.  Karlie managed to lose 2 balls throughout our adventures.  The workers let us get more balls at the counter.  The girls both got “hole in ones”, but I never got one (2 shots was my lowest par).

Hole 1 – each hole had a storybook with information and cute sayings on it.

P1380570c

It was bright and sunny that day!

Brina ready for her next hit.

P1380582c

This hole was in a cave.  It was cool.  Both girls got a hole in one on this one.

P1380583c

So close….  They were concerned a few times about me accidentally hitting their balls further away from the hole (a couple of times it was a valid concern).

P1380592c

The greenery around the course was beautiful!

P1380594c

Found a spot in the shade to rest for a minute.

P1380596c

They had some cute decorations.  This elephant sprayed water when you shot the ball through the middle of the base.

 Lining up for a good shot.  This was harder than you think.
