Baby Fest 2016

For the first time ever we had all of our Grandchildren in one place for a whole week while staying at Anna Maria Island in Florida. It was both wonderful and stressful all wrapped up in an series of events that blew by like a hurricane. Parents tried to balance nap and meal times as babies struggled every moment to try to stay awake to enjoy the excitement of lots and lots of playtime. The swimming pool was like a magnet as once the little one’s went into the warm water it was difficult pulling them out.

While all of this was going on parents tried to get ready for the next dinner which was scheduled around Pop’s 90th Birthday Celebration. The trips to the supermarket seemed endless as we grilled and had other family members stop by to hang out. There were so many good times filled with laughter that wrong louder than the babies crying at times.

Over all it was an incredible experience for everyone and one of those special times in life where memories are collected. Just as I remember those trips to the Jersey Shore as a child Baby Fest 2016 was the perfect family get together that brought incredible joy to a 90 year olds Birthday.
