More pictures! These are from Saturday morning and this afternoon at the beach.
Amelia continues her reign over Siesta Key beach. She has made so many friends - she loves playing with the girls she meets. And she flirts with all the boys. Today she KISSED a boy and then tackled him into the ocean!!! Shortly thereafter, she was "chatting up" 2 teen-aged boys and then moved onto the lifeguard. We're going to have our hands full with this one!

What's with the crowd???
It must be the huge (live) jellyfish that came ashore.

It was a calm day at the ocean
...so she made her own waves!

I don't know about you, but I think she's the cutest little beach bum!
Today we had a pretty chill day - did a little shopping, but mostly hung around the condo while I worked.
These are pictures from yesterday. We went to the pool in the morning and the beach in the late afternoon. As usual, Amelia had a blast at the beach. She has so much fun playing in the waves and running all over the beach. She approaches almost all the kids she sees, especially boys. There were a group of girls (a little older, ~5-7 year olds) playing in a water hole. She jumped right in and started playing with them. It was hilarious! Alex's parents took some video of it, but it's not in the right format to add here. Trust me, it was awesome.

Waves - yay!

This morning we went to Mote Aquarium. It was so neat! It was mostly indoors with some parts outside. We saw so many creatures - it was a hit! Amelia really liked looking at the fish, the sea turtles and the manatees.

A giant squid - it was super ugly.
We attempted the whole put-your-head-in-the-hole pic, but Amelia couldn't have been LESS interested in putting her hed in the hole. So, this is what I got.
She WAS interested in splashing in the touchable aquarium, though.
Cute little seahorses. They also had itty bitty seahorses that were just born on 4/6/10. They looked like sea monkeys (Ok, a little bigger than that).
Another sea turtle
They had a net to show how hard it is for sea turtles to get out. Amelia had a blast playing in it and didn't want to come out.
Amelia liked watching the manatees.

Seriously, coming straight at us.
But then he turned.
St. Armands Circle - a cool old car (I mainly put this on for my dad!)
