Destin 2009 - Day 3,4,5

Quick Recap for Days 3, 4, 5 - Tues we went shopping at the Silver Sands outlet and kept Coach in business :), Wed Scott and Ethan played golf and then we tried going to the beach in the afternoon excpet a terrible windy storm blew in, (fyi - wind blowing on the beach does not feel so great, sand hitting you terribly hard is no bueno especially for kids), Thur we spent the day with the Byrnes had a great time at Crab Island (although huge jelly fish loomed all around), then a great dinner out with adults only (thanks Jocey) then back in the boat to the Harbor to see the fireworks.

Destin 2009 - Day 2

Sunday, August 2, 2009

Hello Destin 2009

Our annual vacation to Destin Fl has begun. Day 1 has turned out to be a great one. We started the day out by going over to Crab Island and catching lots of crabs in their shells. However the picture below of the crab in the net was caught rights outside our house. We ended the day celebrating Kara's birthday in the harbor at Harry T's. It was a great dinner and a great way to end day 1. Enjoy!

Ethan's Graduation

Well our oldest child, Ethan, graduated from Kindergarden. HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE???? He is such a big boy! In his graduation ceremony, his class sang songs, some read, they recited the pledge of allegiance to the America and Christian flag and the Bible. They also counted by one's, by fives and by tens. Lastly, they quoted a scripture verse for every letter of the alphabet. It was very impressive. How many grown ups can say they know that many scripture verses? Ethan, we are so proud of you and the light you are to your family and friends.

After graduation we left for our annual trip to Beavers Bends with the Fullers. The park has had some severe flooding due to high amounts of rain. The nearby lake was filling up too much due to all the rain so their OK Corp of Engineers had to open the flood gates and it really damaged much of the river. They waited too long to open them and had to open them to high. This made the fishing a bit difficult. We only caught 2 trout and one bass. Normally I catch my limit of 6/day but the water was too swift. We had a really good time in spite of the high water. The kids loved it. We rode the train and horses. Leah and I...and Kara some...put a puzzle together.

Only 57 days until Destin!!!!
