Spring Break was last week, and we headed down to Destin, Florida with my sister, Cyndi, and my brother, Blake, and his family.
It was the first time that Eli had been to Florida, and he thoroughly enjoyed playing in the sand.
Jonathan got to spend time with his cousin, Kinsey. They are only six months apart.
The boys also got to spend time with their cousins, Ryan (far left) and Drew (far right).
Eli pretended he was surfing in the shoreline…
My sister, “Aunt CeCe” covered Eli up with sand….
Luke had fun on the boogey boards…
We stayed in some villas at Baytown Wharf. It is the coolest place to hang out with your family!
The boys couldn’t help but climb on this giant chair!
Here is a shot of all the cousins…Kinsey, Luke, Drew, Eli, Adam, Ryan, and Jonathan.
Just like something out of a movie!
The boys loved checking out the fish in the bay.
There are all kinds of fun activities for the children.
Jonathan and Adam took their turn at the ropes course…
Luke jumped on the trampoline-thingy…
So did Eli!
He put on quite a show! He was jumping so high and was doing flips. He even got an applause from the crowd when he did a DOUBLE FLIP! I was laughing out loud!
He gave the bungee thingy “two thumbs up!”
Jonathan, Luke, and Adam all took their turn on the zipline. Here is Luke in action…
Of course we made room for food! There are many delicious restaurants around the wharf. We ate at Poppy’s one night.
Here are my sister and brother getting ready to chow down on some snow crab!
Here is Cyndi soaking up some time with her niece and nephews. They love hanging out with her!
Off to Georgia…
We left Florida in the middle of the week and headed to Georgia to spend time with my husband’s side of the family.
My boys loved hanging out with their cousins. All grandsons (10 in all) on this side of the family, NO granddaughters! Can you believe that?!
They had a great time riding around in the “gator.”
Watching tv together at Pop and Grandma’s pool house…
We love spending time at Pop and Grandma’s farm.
Getting ready for meal time!…
We enjoyed a beautiful afternoon swimming at the Reynold’s Plantation swimming pool. Cy and I loved spending time with his sister, Sarah and her husband, Tim. Though I didn’t dare get pictures of us in our swimming suits.
We got home from Georgia Saturday night, and headed to our church on Sunday morning to celebrate Easter.
Our church always has an Easter egg hunt after church for the little children. Here is big brother, Jonathan, trying to help Eli find the eggs…
I think there is nothing much more precious than a field full of children hunting Easter eggs. So sweet and innocent. I know God smiles down on such a scene.
Eli and his best bud, Jacob were excited about the hunt! Could the weather be any more gorgeous?!
To top off a wonderful week, we headed to my Aunt Tassy’s house Sunday afternoon for our annual Easter egg hunt on my mom’s side of the family. I wish I could take each of you to my Aunt Tassy’s house. She and my precious Uncle Tommy have lived here every since I can remember. It is the most gorgeous piece of property.
The picture perfect place for an Easter Egg Hunt!
Eli is ready to roll, again!…
The kids hunt extra hard for these eggs because many of them are filled with money!
(I teased my Aunt Tassy that we didn’t have money in our eggs when I was a little girl! We just hunted a bunch of hard boiled eggs! Boy have the times changed.)
Then we sat around, ate the loot, and enjoyed the sunshine.
Precious and priceless memories.
My husband and I have been so blessed with such wonderful families!
Did you have a good Easter? What was your favorite memory?
