She was pretty crazy and excited, so it was hard to get a picture =)
This is the best we could do
After that, we headed to Turkey Creek and met up with Myrtle to walk the boardwalk before having a picnic lunch.
As always, there were lots of turtles to view off the bridge!
A remake of a photo from the last time we went with her
(Isn't she adorable??)
I Love this one of all of us!

Just for fun, I compiled some photos of some of our past adventures at Turkey Creek with Myrtle! We have had a lot of happy times on these boardwalks!
The rest of Friday was spent relaxing and getting ready to travel home the next day.
Mom and the kids enjoyed the sun by/in the pool (depending on who it was) =). The hot tub was more up mom's alley. =)
In the hot tub
Mom took these pictures on her phone of Caleb going under the water in the hot tub. This was a pretty big deal, since he is usually really timid about putting his head under the water =)
This is the front of the Latham's beautiful home where we stayed
...and the pool, the kid's favorite part =)
We got an early start on Saturday morning and I took the kid's by their favorite donut shop to grab breakfast before dropping off our rental car and checkin in. (There was quite a line and I was afraid we were going to be late getting to the airport, but we were fine).
We actually even had time to hang out and eat breakfast in the nice USO lounge at the airport and grab some snacks before heading through security.
Our flights went really well, and in the Atlanta airport, a random guy came up to me, said he was a children's author and wanted to give the kids one of his books! I had him sign the inside cover and he put "John 3:30" after his signature. Then I actually looked at the book and realized it was a Christian one! I read it right then and loved it! He ended up being on our flight and I thanked him as we went past.
WHAT a great trip! We had such an amazing time spending time with so many special friends! Thank you, thank you, Lathams for hosting us for all those nights - your generosity and hospitality were such a blessing! =)
