It was a rainy weekend, but we made the most of it! The highlight was our visit yesterday
with our dear friends Mrs. Kathy and Mr. Mark for lunch, and then Mrs. Mary and
her family for dinner. It rained
like crazy during lunch and we couldn't go out on the boat as hoped, but we
still loved catching up with Mrs. Kathy and Mr. Mark. And then the rain actually stopped when we got to Mary's, so
Lilli and I were able to play in the Gulf with Sadie, Tate, and Sam. We started by digging a hole,
And then Sadie had the great idea to let our hole
serve as our 'aquarium' - basically a temporary holding tank for all the hermit
crabs, snails, crown conchs, shrimp, and pipe fish we collected.
The tide started coming in, so we began fortifying the walls
with drip castles.
It looked like a mini Hogwarts!
We worked forever, lured inside only with the promise of ice
cream after dinner. What a fun afternoon and evening!
There were other notable events this week - for one, they
moved the lighthouse from its spot on the Cape because of beach erosion, and we
got to watch it go by on its way to town!
Amos spent several evenings with us while Coach was out of
town and Lil went to dinner with friends.
We loved having him over, although he did try to eat "Part"
one night! Thankfully James saved
We also went into town to play at the pirate park,
Made a cozy wagon for Teddy and Hedwig to escape the many
thunderstorms (complete with a mobile to entertain them!)
And spent a rainy afternoon coloring away while Mom and Dad
enjoyed the Tap Room.
Today, Lil helped us make our favorite Jolly Rancher
lollypops - so pretty!
And then we put together Scout's crate!! We of course had to
test it out for her.
She arrives on Wednesday - can't wait!
