1st Day of Vacation!

Ok, I warned ya!  This post is only about the first day, which included 7 hours of riding (which only warrants one of the following pics).  There are lots and lots of pics, and I will try to keep the descriptions brief, but I can't promise!

Like Daddy like daughter:

We finally arrived, and while Ninnie was getting our keys and info, the kids were running around finding the sand and pool!

From the very beginning, Lily Kate loved the sand!

Lily Kate and Daddy put on their swimsuits as soon as we got settled...

so did Gage and Ella!

And here we are at the beach! 

Uncle Phillip was so smart to bring a bucket and spoons! 

Gage loved finding shells and trying to "net" fish haha!

Happy Kate!

This is my sweet Ella Boo!!!

And my Roni head (I shortened Macaroni head into Roni head)!

Lily Kate adores Gage and Ella!  She ran up to Gage and just wanted some lovings!

So sweet, Ella and her Daddy!

Yep, Gage got buried in the sand...

And Lily Kate helped!

Love this pic of Gage!

And then Ella got buried in the sand!

So we played at the beach until almost dark.  Ninnie and Poppy made it back from the grocery store as Taylor, Lily Kate and I were walking back.  They watched us from the balcony and got a good laugh...  Lily Kate did NOT want to leave so she decided to throw a little fit.  These days her fits consist of getting on her hands and knees and putting her face on the floor.  Well guys, the floor this time was sand!!!  When she leaned up she had a circle of sand all around her face.  It was priceless and I wish I had a pic or video of that!!!

By the time we got ready, drove somewhere to eat and actually got our food it was 10pm!!!  So here is a pic of what everybody looked like at 10 when we were eating supper...

Ella fell asleep!  We told her the next morning how her daddy dropped food on her!!!

Lily Kate fell asleep in Poppy's lap (who is almost asleep himself!).  Please notice her favorite blanket -- a full size fleece blanket with SPIDERS on it...  not feminine, but she loves it!

Gage was so tired, but managed to stay away so he could eat.  He no longer eats a kids meal but an adult meal, and the kid will also eat off your plate too!!!  Where does he put it all???

Ninnie was tired...

Taylor was tired...

And Green Pea and I were whipped!!!

Told ya!  Lots of pics and this is only day 1!!!  More to come soon!

Rebecca, Taylor, Lily Kate and Green Pea!
