My sister was thrilled to carry him all day while we played tourist in Old Saint Augustine. He even fell asleep on her back and she felt like supper Cuz! I know it looks like Anna is choking the life out of him at dinner, but honestly, she was given him some good love!
We had a blast for the whole weekend. Being with my 2nd cousins, once removed..(Yes that's actually what you call your cousins' children) was awesome. Lovely young ones all of them. And being with my dad's remaining brothers and sisters was bittersweet. He was one of 8 and their are only 4 left. My dad always looked up to my uncle Bill, and two of his granddaughters came down. They shared a very close relationship with their grandfather like my girlz do and it was sort of sad that Uncle Bill wasn't there. He lives on though in the memories his "grans" have of him...
My Dad, with Justin and my sis watching the Green's play in the pool!
My cousin Kelly has the perfect set up for a party, right on the bay with a pool and hot tub..My sister ended up in that thing til the middle of the night with Kelly and her sister Kim and their kids and grans..We pooped out and went back to the hotel around dusk..
The last time I toured St. Augustine was when my school went there on a field trip when I was in third grade. So it was fun to do it again with my girlz. Anni will learn about many of the topics in social studies so we made sure to hit the most important sites. The girlz loved the Castillo de San Marcos mainly because they thought it was cool to have a fort made out of shells..

So now you are caught up through the end of July-ish..Throw in lots of days at the beach, followed by lunches at the pool and you are pretty much in the know!
