Our first full day in Naples Florida! Chris’ grandparents got us a room at the lodge, it was really nice. They had a pack and play crib set up and ready for our little girl’s first night away from home.
night night! (April 23)
Chris’ dad and step-mom came in the morning to watch Alison while we went to get some breakfast at the café. I think they are enjoying being new grandparents.

We had a great day hanging out with grandparents and great-grandparents.
Chris’ grandparents live in a retirement community, Bentley Village. It’s a really nice place and there is so much to do. The weather was absolutely lovely and Chris and I walked around pushing Alison in her stroller. She seemed to enjoy the nice weather as well. We spent some great family time at one of the pools. We were lucky and there was hardly anyone there.

Sunday April 25, 2010
Chris’ dad and step-mom left early and were gone by the time we woke up. Great-grandma came over to our room and watched Alison while we went to the Café for breakfast. (The café breakfast is really good!)
Great-grandma, Chris, Alison and I went to the Naples Botanical Garden. It was lovely! They have a children’s section with water features, a playhouse, a cave and all sorts of fun, bright plant themed activities.

Of course I had to take a picture of Great Grandma next to the golf bag full of flowers!

There was a tree-house with stroller friendly bridges, here I am with Alison!
Someone was nice enough to offer to take a picture of all of us. We had a really great time.
Alison had her first golf-cart ride around Bentley today! Daddy drove and Mommy wore Alison in the Bjorn. I forgot my camera for it… boo. Oh well Chris and Alison both had a wonderful time! I did too for that matter!
