We saw my sister right away when we arrived, because she was doing a show in St. Petersburg and was able to stop by pretty regularly. We also had dinner with Eric's mother, Gramz, Kelley and Phyllis within a few days of our arrival in Florida. A week later, we were also able to have lunch with my mom and Gary, and their friends Wilma and Don. (Ellie has really become a restaurant pro these days!)
Grammy is happy to be so close to Ellie now!
We also took Ellie to meet Eric's childhood friend Ryan, his wife Amanda and their new baby Ethan. Ethan was born at the end of July, so there is about the same age difference between Ellie and Ethan as there is between Eric and me. Coincidence, or proof that they'll probably end up married? You decide.

Old friends with new babies. Both babies also happened to be wearing Gator gear, so I'm pretty sure the fates have spoken on this one.
Fun with stuffed elephants
Come here, Great Grandma. Let me closely inspect your face.

Ellie and me sharing a lemonade at Target (I think the icy drink felt good on her poor teething gums)
Shopping and meeting family is exhausting!
