Trip to Orlando...

No, silly, we didn't go to Disney World.  Not with a 9 month old.  But the airport has Mickey ears so of course we had to try them on Aiden.  We went to visit Jonathan's Aunt Esther and Uncle Frank.  Jonathan's parents met us there and so did his Aunt Peg and Uncle Tom.  We had such a great time.  Jonathan's parents had not seem Aiden since Christmas so he had definitely changed since then.  And his aunt and uncle's had never met Aiden, so that was special.  There is a golf course where his aunt and uncle live and everyone drives around on golf carts.  Aiden LOVED the golf cart.  He was so funny.  Once again I did a horrible job getting pictures, but here are a few from the trip.  You'll notice I did great getting pictures when we first started the trip and then....well I don't really know why I stopped taking pictures.  Thanks again Aunt Esther and Uncle Frank for your hospitality.  We had a WONDERFUL time.  We will definitely be back soon. 

This is Grammy and Aiden with his Mickey ears on!  
This was us waiting in the airport.  Aiden was so content just watching people.  He gets that from his mom.  I love to people watch.  
"Oh my goodness momma!  What is she wearing?"  
"Give me that camera!"  Aiden is not to fond of me taking his picture all the time.  He's definitely a Carothers!  
"Alright then, I'm outta here!"
I was so proud of Aiden on the plane.  He did so good!  I was so worried for several days before the trip how he would do and he was perfect.  He played, then he tried to eat the magazines, then he pulled down the drink tray, then he ate and he was done after that.  I was putting his bottle away and I looked over and he was gone in Jonathan's arms.  So sweet.   And he slept till we landed.  He did this same thing on the way back but you know I'm not so good about getting pictures at the end of a trip so I didn't get one of those.  
After an exhausting day of shopping Aiden is getting rolled around on an ice chest by Grammy and Granddaddy.  Did I mention he was just a little spoiled while we were there?!?! 
This was basically how each night ended.....Aiden crashed hard!  We had no problems with him sleeping on this trip.  
This is the beautiful lake at their community.
