I changed the theme to the blog in order to post vacation photos nice and big!
We had a long drive from Connecticut to Georgia. This picture was taken at one of our many rest stops along the way.
Grace picked me some wild flowers.
I rode up front with Rich but switched seats with Jacob now and then so Seth could be with me. He lost his first tooth!
We ate at a frozen yogurt place.
And then we all made it to the Island. We arrived on Sunday afternoon…my parents, my siblings, and all their families. The pool has been the main attraction so far. It’s so special to see all the cousins together.
Ethan showed his Grandma (my mom) a picture of the girl he likes.
The kids all loved hanging off Uncle Nate.
Yesterday evening we had a fantastic dinner at the restaurant at the pier.
My brother Nate.
My sister Amanda.
We have rooms at the San Souci, a big beautiful old building.
The beach was stunning last night.
My son Ethan.
Me and Sarah
Caleb had his light sabers taken away shortly after this photo because Seth was hit very hard in the mouth with one. Thankfully he was fine and today he just has a slightly swollen upper lip. But it was a bad moment and we left soon afterwards because it was starting to get dark. Seth had taken his jersey off, when I asked him where it was he said he had buried it! After wandering for a while Rich found it.
This morning we went to some of the little shops in the historical section of the island.
“the day was quite warm and we walked along leisurely……”
We went through the museum and watched a video about the Island.
They were playing with an old telephone.
Seth, my Dad, my Mom, and Caleb

My brother Isaac and brother in law Jason coincidentally wore the same clothes today.
We met a little dog named Lady at the shopping center.
Grace read books in the Jekyll Island lending library.
David was determined to catch one! When he caught it, it was brown, then it turned green in his hand.
We were all hanging out at the pool and I caught this sweet moment when David came back over to join us he went straight to his brother and patted him on the head.
We are currently on the balcony off my sister’s room. Mom french braided Naomi’s hair, and then Makayla’s.
And the little ones played a game with their little toes.
We are talking about what to do for dinner. I had fried shrimp and sweet potato fries for lunch and am not very hungry, but all the boys need some food.
Looks beautiful—and also looks like your mom is enjoying her grandchildren.
I’m glad you are all having a good time.
So many memories being made!! What a lovely trip!
Ahhhhh lovely! Enjoy! 🙂
What a blast! The pics are beautiful and I love the new theme with the large photos! I can almost smell that salty air. 🙂
So good to see you all enjoying one another. Such a lovely trip! The colors are coming through in these photos, so bright and beautiful.
That is so great..I didn’t realize you were going to see your whole family! How fun! Glad to see and hear some moments on the trip!
This will be a vacation you all remember for the rest of your lives. Thank you for sharing moments of it with us
definitely a wise move to change the blog theme so the pictures can be bigger. they are all so vibrant and beautiful!
