Beach Bash

Mom, Jeff and Isaac got here safe and sound last night and it didn't take Keenan long to warm up and start "picking on" his uncle Isaac! =)

So much for picking on someone your own size... =)

"Hey Uncle Isaac, play with me!"

Today was the Eglin Residency Beach Bash at the Air Force beach on Okalossa Island. It's another opportunity for the new interns to get to know everyone. Aside from being at the beach with a ton of our favorite people, the highlight was definitely the meat... beef brisket, prepared by Matt Ramage (as well as a loyal crew who helped him with the rubbing and smoking waay into the night last night!) Sooo tender and tasty!

Keenan didn't nap this morning (or on the way in the van, like we hoped), so he was pretty much exhausted from the get go. The only thing that made him happy was eating chips at first. After a while, he finally got so sleepy that Mom was able to push him in the stroller and he fell asleep and napped for about 40 minutes. That improved his mood some, but he was still pretty cranky until Mom, Jeff and Isaac took him swimming while Philip and I stayed in the pavilion for some activities.

Grandpa and Keenan headed out to the beach

One of the activities was a tug of war between the "Over 30's" and the "Under 30's". Philip's team (the young ones) won two out of three!
