on our third day in florida, we laid pretty low. we skipped the beach and instead headed to the pool. i took exactly zero pictures at the pool. because of having to hold so many non-swimmers and such. then, hazel caught up on some MUCH needed sleep and we just lounged around the trailer park. […]
sunshiny florida trip. part 1.
ok. i’m skipping around. we actually just got back from this trip, so this isn’t belated. well, technically it is. but, by my dismal standards, it’s super early. some background. in october, my gramma died.
