We're Here!

We arrived in Seaside, FL, yesterday around 4:00 p.m. Amazingly the children traveled extremely well. They watched movies, played the car games I had prepared, and entertained themselves with their backpacks (I had put a few treats in each backpack for them). Sam took 3 naps, and I read 3/4 of a book. Poor Jimmy did all of the driving!
Shortly after we arrived, we were joined by Uncle Russ and Aunt Megan, Uncle Jeff, Aunt Jenny, Will, Seth, and Grace. After we unloaded our vehicles the ladies cooked supper while the men took all of the children to the beach--in the rain! They were all so excited and could not wait another second to see the ocean. Uncle Russ and Aunt Megan brought Julie's birthday present--a new digital camera to use for her blog. She has already posted some of her pictures.

We played games and visited after supper, and Megan helped me find the cute Mickey Mouse ticker for our next vacation! Thanks Megan!

The sun is shining brightly this morning! I am looking foward to seeing the ocean myself!
