Gardner decided that we needed to have a "book club" at the beach......
John David and Carly were the lucky ones that got to ride with Julianne and Chris
this is how you travel a few miles in a full car til you can ride where there is room
it took Madeline about 30 seconds to get her suit on when we arrived!
JD and Janie are such great buddies
our first Bachelor "reading"
my goodness the laughter that first night.....
turned to falling asleep the next few nights
cards games, card games and card games
we had to watch some Bachelorette for great entertainment...
I fell asleep:)
now this girlfriend decided to give us a show
she will only pose like this for Kendyl!!
She made her entrance down the stairs like a princess
After her show she wanted to give autographs....so funny!!
yep, body autographs!
these two are great buds too!
our selfie taking family pics...
Janie is too short to be seen haha
Ma Kitty and Jim did not understand the whole "selfie" thing
Eric spent way more time playing with kids than he bargained for
they love love love their big siblings
Ju and Carly lightened their hair with lemon
wish that still worked on grey:)
and lastly the big ole putt game
John David's shirt is wet since he was killed while playing assassins
oh my goodness we had so much fun playing it!!
each person is texted their "target" by the master
then texted when the game begins
you can be assassinated with a spoon, water bottle or hose
most of us were quite competitive.....
a few runs down the beach to take someone out
Eric may or may not have thrown Julianne over his shoulder yelling "disarmed"
I may or may not have assassinated my own son while helping him get his dad
Julianne may or may not have slept with her spoon....
you get the picture
so much fun!!
this putt putt picture looks like an band cover!!
I love this pic so much!!!
goodness they look like sisters!!
We had such a nice vacation
minimal fussing and whining:)
well maybe Hank did a little.....
it is a great treat to be able to have everyone together
I will say I bet the big kids sure enjoyed beingt in their quiet houses when we got home:)
