Spring Break, Part II

On Easter Sunday night, we took a red-eye flight to Phoenix, to visit with my in-laws. We hadn't been back to AZ since I was pregnant with Connor, and spending a week in the sun was looking really really good after that blizzard on Friday!

My in-laws live in a retirement community, and we went swimming at least once a day.

Connor loved the pool, although apparently he's mad at me in this pic, as I'm probably not going fast enough for him to catch one of "my boys".

The last day, he finally got comfortable enough to put part of his face in the water and blow bubbles. I had been trying to get him to do that for the whole week!

My in-laws have a few citrus trees in their yard (pink grapefruit, tangerine, juice orange, and tangelo. They even have a key lime tree in their front yard). Every day we picked oranges.

It takes a LOT of oranges to get enough juice for my crew!

Caleb hit on the perfect combination for juice: half juice oranges, half tangelos, with 1 or 2 grapefruits. Delicious!

See that juice pitcher? We went through at least one of those a day, with at least half of the juice drunk by ME! I love OJ, and to have fresh-squeezed every day? Wonderful!

It does look like a lot of fun! And I'm jealous (and missing my Florida life).
