Here's some of the fun we had during our last week and a half in Naples!
Grandpa Larry and Jason took Rylan and Maylee to the Naples airport one afternoon to watch the private planes and helicopters take off and land :)
Maylee loved rearranging these snowmen decorations at their house!
Jason left to go back to work and I stayed an extra week with the kids. We were sad for him to go... but since I was up for attempting the flight home by myself with the kids, we wanted to make the most of our trip and enjoy another special week with our family. (I also had a few families at Rylan's preschool who have older kids tell us that now was the time to take these longer trips - before real school starts!) We had several more adventures, including the Naples zoo. Rylan enjoyed this animal show, and Maylee liked it and made it through most of it too! We got to see this sloth up close.
My adorable sweetie!!
So cute :)
Rylan feeding the giraffes romaine lettuce!
And Maylee took a turn too!

At the Nature Conservancy. Holding a starfish!
Giant python sculpture on the hand rail!
Open gym time at a local gymnastics spot
Leaping into the foam pit!
Went to the library a few times when it was rainy out
The awesome Children's museum!
Grandpa Larry came with us :). They had an area set up to construct paper rockets and then launch them!
Love these smiles :)

Supe cute one of my mom and Maylee on our walk on the golf course our last evening there :). They had a chance to bond more during our extra week which was so neat to see :).
How we survived the trip home! :) This was my first flight with just the two of them. It was a really long day (about 11 hours of traveling) but we did ok!
Sweet sleeping Ry :). They switched roles...Maylee's the one who was still napping regularly but she did not want to sleep on the plane. And Ry doesn't normally nap, but was tired enough that he passed out!
A million thanks again to our family for a wonderful visit and all the precious, unforgettable memories. We love you and miss you so much!!!!
