Boogie Boarding

We have been so busy the past couple of days that I have not had a chance to sit in front of my computer for more than a few minutes at a time.  Thank God for my iPhone or I would never be able to keep up with my emails.

Yesterday, we went to the beach during high tide so the kids, Nathan and my Dad were able to boogie board.  I have fond memories of boogie boarding at the same beach when I was a child so I love that the kids get to experience it too.  Plus, they are using the same boogie board I did.  Kudos to my parents for keeping them in such good shape after 20 years!  Cooper was on his own boogie board and just went for it!

Grant rode with my Dad, aka Grandpa, and also with Nathan and he LOVED it!!!  

Kindle wanted to ride on the boogie board, but she had no interest in going where the waves were breaking.  She wanted to lay on the board near the edge of the water.  She thought it was great fun!

Celeste hung out with my Mom, aka Nana, and I did get some photos of them jumping and splashing in the water.  However, if I was to upload the photos of my Mom in a bathing suit to the world wide web, I might be in a bit of trouble, so I won't.
Here's a cute photo instead of Celeste having fun in Nana's hat!
Nathan got a chance to ride by himself as well.    

It was another wonderful day at the beach with the breeze from the tent. 

Last night, we went to dinner with some friends that live down here.  It was so nice to see them and catch up!  We went to the Saltwater Cowboy and we each ate steaks.  Very yummy!  Then, we went to Wake Up Coffee Company.  They have their own version of a Frappucino.  I tried the one called Turtle.  It has caramel and chocolate and it is so awesome!  I didn't think much could top Starbucks, but I was wrong.  They make their own pastries and cakes too.  I had a cheesecake brownie that was warm with chocolate drizzled over the top.  It was definitely one of the best desserts I have ever tasted.  If you ever go to St. Simons, you have got to go check this coffeehouse out!

I couldn't resist adding this picture.  He was making such a funny face, but I  love how blue his eyes look!

Today, the guys went fishing.  They didn't catch anything, but they had a lot of fun.  Then, we went out for some seafood for lunch.  Afterwards, my Mom, Gunnar and I went shopping.  There is a quite pitiful outlet mall down here that we have been coming to for years.  Most of the stores have gone under, but there is a Gap, Bath & Body Works and Carter's outlet.  I got some foaming hand soap for $2 each.  I also got the younger 4 children Halloween shirts.   Then, we drove to the Old Navy and Target.  I found a Star Wars t-shirt for Cooper since I couldn't find a non-creepy Halloween shirt for him.  I guess I will keep looking.  Gunnar did pretty good.  He definitely loves being in the baby sling.   It was a nice afternoon break.  Tonight, we grilled out and went for ice cream and coffee.  I have spent the past several hours since the kids went to bed packing to head back tomorrow.  It has been such a wonderful vacation!  I am so thrilled that we got to stay as long as we did.  We also really enjoyed having my parents and brother here for part of the trip.  I look forward to our next vacation!
