Here are the rest of the pictures from our visit:
Moriah and I cooling off
All six kids, as well as Tim and I, took naps, and then we packed up, met up with Philip and headed to the Boardwalk on Okaloosa Island...
We took some pictures on the beach before heading to the restaurant...
All of us at dinner
After dinner, we let the kids go on the play equipment on the beach. It was getting late, and they all got Very sandy, but we had promised they could play...
I asked Keenan and Shaelyn if they'd like to give each other a hug... Keenan took off running, tripped, and Shaelyn jumped on top of him! =)
Pictures from this morning:
Mika and the tower she and Keenan built
(I thought it was pretty cool how she added the stuff on top to make it taller than her!)
I bought some little pumpkins for the kids to paint...Shaelyn and Mika getting started
Very serious Kyla
Shaelyn painted hers totally blue
Keenan used lots of colors
Tim reading books to the kids
Time to go...I wouldn't believe this if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes - Shaelyn and Keenan bossed each other around the entire time and Always wanted the same toys at the same time... but when it was time for goodbye hugs, they were sooo sweet and Shaelyn even gave Keenan a kiss!
Hug for Mika
and Auntie Steph
This was the Last time we said goodbye to them (in August 2008)
Look how little Keenan was!
Saying goodbye to Uncle Tim
Moriah under the sheets while I was remaking our bed
Now I need to do laundry, make a packing list, go grocery shopping, and get all our stuff ready for our trip to Orlando in a day and a half!
Moriah is now quite mobile. She is still not crawling, but can move herself pretty far from where I first put her, by reaching and sitting back up, and scooting, and turning around in circles. She is also starting to be able to play by herself for a decent amount of time, which is really cool! She can also pull the desk drawers open while she's sitting on the floor by the computer (not as cool).
I thought I should mention... since "thrifting" is kind of an ongoing thing with me - that I bought my dress for the Dining Out at a thrift store for $5.99! I added the black velvet ribbon myself to make it match the black accessories (purse borrowed from Jodi, earrings and necklace from Andrea!)
