greetings from jekyll island

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.

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.

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.
