Beach Trip

Hello everyone!  I’m sure you can guess from the title of this post where we have been.  We went with Dave and Jess to Jekyll Island GA for a week.  We had so much fun.  The girls had never been to the beach before and I have only been a few times.  Some friends from our church recommended Jekyll Island and we loved it.  It is not too crowded and has lots of fun things to do.

We took a trolley tour of some of the old houses.  It was very interested.  So many of the “rich and famous” lived in these homes.

We also rode a bicycle around the island.

This took most of one day but it was so much fun.  We saw so many things we normally would not have seen.

We did a dolphin tour one day.  Little Sam saw his first dolphin on his third bithday.  Then the motion of the boat did him in.  He had to take a short nap.   We also celebrated my Julie’s 15th birthday while we were there.  Amazing to me how fast they grow up.

On the island they call this driftwood beach.  It is very pretty.

Saturday morning as we were leaving we made a last trip down to driftwood beach and guess what we saw-a dolphin!  Amazing!  It was just swimming around looking beautiful.

While we were there a tropical storm can through.  It was AWESOME!  We went down to the beach that evening before it came in and the waves were so pretty.  The wind was whipping and the sound was like a roar.  I LOVED it!!!! On Thursday, it rained something fierce so we went down to Jacksonville FL to the Museum of Science and History.  It was a fun trip with lots of things to look at.

I guess I could go on and on about all the fun things we did but I don’t want to bore you all too much.  It was a great week and we are very thankful to Dave and Jess for taking us along with them.  I hope you all have a great evening and God bless.

 

Christfest 2011

Every year our church has a halloween alternative.  We call it Christfest.  It is a big outreach.  Lots of children come to play games and get candy.  Last night was no different.   Our fellowship hall was overflowing with children and adults, laughing and just in general having a great time.  This little lion (Kaleb) is adorable.

Chocolate candy is always abundant.  As a matter of fact, in the bulletin when we are requesting donations of candy, it actually specifies individually wrapped chocolate.

This young man was just a doctor, then he got the glasses at one of the games, and instantly became a mad scientist.

Everyone participates.   From clowns,

to fun loving,

to one needing a small nap.  Our pastor (regrettably I did not get any pictures)  asked the children bible questions.  If they answered correctly they got to throw a whipped creme pie at him.  I’m not sure who had the most fun with this game, him or them.  It actually was his idea-go figure.  And last of all, my baby girls.  No longer babies, except to me.

Enjoy your day and God bless.
