Beach {Part 2}

Still working on the beach posts. One more after this one and I’m done! :)

Uncle Ricky and Ms. Katie joined us on Saturday for a few days of fun in the sun. He was sure to bring all of his fishing equipment with him for Ethan!! Good Uncle! We were so happy to have them there with us. Luckily, we had a three bedroom condo, so there was plenty of room for everyone! Katie and Ricky were able to have their own room, the Caldwells had a room, and our family had a room. It was perfect! We typically would head out to the beach just after breakfast, come back in to eat lunch and let the smaller kids nap, then go back out in the late afternoon/evening. We tried to go out a few nights to look for crabs, but they were hard to come by! :( Maybe next year. Fortunately, the jelly fish were few and far between. I was thankful for that! And, Ethan and RP were able to catch A LOT of fish!! Since we know now how much Ethan enjoyed it, we’ll probably charter a boat next year. He’ll love that!

He told her that he’d give her $5 if she could do a push up by the end of the trip. Let’s just say that she didn’t come home with that $5!! ha!
