David hiked the little mountain with some of the guys this morning. We plan to all go another day, but the smoke was pretty bad. We headed down to the beach and yesterday, the sky was beautiful and blue. Today, it was so smokey.
I didn't take a ton of pictures. Emily and Noah are exhausted. Two nights of getting 8 hours or less of sleep and they are both done. We need to catch up on some sleep tonight. But, they found a starfish that brought a smile.
Emily was infatuated and examined him/her from every angle. I wonder how you tell a boy starfish from a girl? I should google that.
She convinced Noah to touch it, but he wouldn't hold it.
Ben wasn't so sure about it.
Ok, now it's day 4 of vacation and I'm continuing the blog from yesterday. We just checked out of the hotel and are at Uncle Terry and Aunt Paula's house for the remainder of our stay here. Yeah for good wifi!
Ok, so we came back to the house yesterday after the beach and we all went to dinner and had gelato.
These two got Noah's favorite....Blue Smurf.
Here's the gang.
Then, we all went jumping off the pier. So much fun and still scary. Amy went first.
Ben jumped next.
Then, David and his cousin Marc jumped.
Then, everyone was jumping.
Emily went with a little push from Ben.
The little boys played on the beach.
Ben loves the logs. It's like rock jumping.
Noah found a baby crab.
And a baby star fish.
Then, we went back out to the dock with cousin Greg. He's a pro at this. How fun would it be to grow up here and have the ocean as your playground?
Ben jumped some more.
Greg doing a back flip and the younger boys are watching like, um we can't do that.
But, he did jump off the higher part of the dock.
Ben pushed Em again.
Then, my girl finally jumped all on her own.
The sun looked cool behind all the smoke.
Then, we went back to our hotel and slept. The kids were so tired. We had to wake them up after 11 and 12 hours of sleep this morning.
Now, we've moved into Aunt Paula's and Uncle Terry's for three nights and are headed to the beach soon!
