We were given the opportunity to stay at a friend’s beach house over on Tybee Island this last week. It was kind of a last-minute trip, and we couldn’t all be there for the whole time, but it was wonderful to get away for a while.
The boys and I headed down on Monday, and Dave and our friends, Matt & Amy (and baby girl) came down in the middle of the week.
It wasn’t long enough, it never is, but grateful for what we got!
Of course I couldn’t keep Harrison out of the water for very long! That little beach monkey.
These two are just best buds.
One day I hope we can get a picture of all four of the boys on the beach again. It’s been a long time since Darren has been with us at the beach.
And when we weren’t at the beach, there was a lot of tree climbing!
This big beautiful tree was in the backyard of the beach house.
I even got in on some of that!
Then, of course, there were more trees to be climbed at the park!
Not many of Harrison climbing trees… I couldn’t keep up with him! Until he jumped off the railing at the house and sprained his ankle. Then his climbing was slowed WAY down. 😦
Isn’t this Live Oak tree just gorgeous? I want one in my backyard.
Harrison’s getting very interested in helicopters lately. He is thinking he might like to pilot them for a career. He got a kick out of seeing all of them flying over the island. There is a coastguard base nearby, apparently.
On our last morning there, some of us got up early to take a walk on the beach.
This is my favorite time of day on the beach!
After awhile, the husband came ambling on out to the beach holding his cup of coffee. Cheater. There is a strict rule that no one gets coffee before The Morning Walk when there are that many of us… or we’d never get out the door!! We were cranky with him, however, jealous of his cup’a joe.
This was Baby Girls first time walking on the beach!
As we were walking along, JJ called me to come with the camera. This is what he saw. It looked just like a rock to me, but as I got closer… I saw that it was…
It was SO cool! So prehistoric looking.
I had to show the boys what it looked like underneath there. And yes… it was alive.
I need to google and find out a little more about them, but that tail… if it doesn’t sting ya, it sure looked scary enough to keep most from finding out!
It was a good week.
A big thank you to Becky & Jarrett for letting us stay at their house!
