Too much content to be funny so I will show our week in pictures. For the record, this was one of the most relaxing vacations (with kids) that I have ever been on. I didn't cook or clean for an entire week!

Before we traveled to the Rat Tail capital of the world (only kidding-I only saw one) We stopped in Atlanta for an awesome birthday party at a train museum and to say Goodbye to my Paris bound Brother and his family.

Then we headed south to Florida.
We started at the Track riding go carts and bumber boats:

Followed by LOTS of beach time. The favorite activity of the week was digging in the sand.
The goal of digging was to see who could come home with the most sand in their bathing suit bottoms.

Linley usually won!

Gee-He is waving to you. Say hi!

Our little John Deere boy drove the tractor by himself this year.

The worst thing the kids made me do on the trip was convincing me to sleep out in the RV one night. This by itself would not have been terrible if I hadn't been sharing a bed with a 3 year old and waking up to every sound in the woods all night long. The kids (Darrell slept inside) had a great time.

NEVER buy ice cream at this place in Seaside. You see this ice cream cone?
Seven dollars!
It was delicious.

Linley did not appreciate the sea kayak so we were dropped off early.

On our way out we had to get a picture on the chickens.
Thanks Grandma and Grandpa-send me a picture of you guys with the kids because I don't have one and that is just plain wrong. See you next year!

Did you know that these still existed?

Yeah, me neither, but a split rat tail is definitely an accomplishment. More from Spring Break after I dig out of the paper on my desk.

Dr. Seuss Week

Jackson had to dress up as his favorite book character last week and guess who he chose?

Don't know?

Ichabod Crane is who my young man chose to dress up as and just like you, no one in his class figured out who he was. And after he told them he was Ichabod Crane, they still didn't know-the shame!

Luckily, Grams had to dress him that day, since he was pretty upset about not having a coat with tails and I didn't have the fight in me to tell him that the costume did not have to be exact. Grams, I am not sure how you did it, but thanks:)
