Lily and Rosie must have enjoyed themselves yesterday because they didn't wake up this morning until after 8 o'clock which is really late for them. Rosie might have slept longer but I think she was woken up by Lily and I when we started moving about.
We didn't actually plan on re-running yesterday but with everyone getting up so late and starting the day off in such a lazy fashion that by the time we had had our lunch and Rosie had napped it was 3.30 before we were actually dressed and ready to go anywhere. Perfect, behaviour for a Sunday in my opinion.
We went to M1ami Beach instead of the trashy one that we paddled in yesterday and it was really late by the time we got there but this time the girls both had bathing suits, we all did, so they were able to dive right in to the frigid water. I manned the camera and somehow managed to keep my swimsuit perfectly dry. The water is so cold that I have no idea how they managed to get near it let alone in it but they did and believe me when I say they did not want to come out. The sky was grey and the wind was picking up but they were in heaven and we were having fun so we left them to frolic.
I made this photo dark on purpose because I just love how it looks.
Once we fished them from the sea we headed back out onto South Beach for a quick jaunt and people watching session. Lily is at the age where she finds people watching to be so amazing and on S0uth Beach the people really capture her attention, well everybodies actually. At one of the outside restaurants they had girls dancing that were wearing nothing but body paint. The guys were about 10 deep taking photos and Lily managed to squirm her way through to the front for a close up view to check we were telling the truth. She came back and announced that we were and then couldn't imagine what would make you do that job. I was going to ask her if she would like the job of applying the paint to someone elses boobies since she thinks all this stuff is so gross at the moment but thought better of it! LOL Rosie started to become a little clingy and it was obvious she getting overwhelmed so we carried her back to the car and made our way to the Gr0ve for dinner.
Apparently it only takes one night of the girls being out and they become specialists on dining and places to be seen in the Gr0ve. They told Jacob where he should go and where they had been etc etc., he however ignored them and took them to a little tiny restaurant that sits right on the Bay. We sat outside and whist we waited for our food he took them for a walk along the dock and out by the boats, again they became specialists on the subject and once they returned they had to take me while he sat a the the table. Funny girls.
Being silly waiting for our dinner.
Lily and Jacob...so sweet.
Silly Rosie hamming it up.
The much loved gappy smile. Oh how she loves that gap!
Rosie showing her gap. She has no gap just a disgusting piece of gum in her mouth. what mother gives a 3 yr old gum? Oh that would be me.
Mr Pearly Whites, himself! That's one expensive smile.
We found out this evening purely be accident that Rosie loves calamari. Odd kid! So we ended up having to order more of it just for her and Lily. By the time we had eaten I was frozen so we headed straight home much to the girls chagrin but we let them stay up late again.
Possibly the best part of the day was the email from andie saying she is going to try again on Tuesday as the BA strike will be over by then. Fingers crossed.
