that means hello and goodbye.
and for two weeks we said that many times
My expectations were simply to be with my family and get to know them better
and I did
Little man loves the water. He never seemed to tire of just playing in the surf with his Mama.
And I never tired watching. The two of them laughing and swimming and laughing and ...you get the picture.
We did enjoy a lot of good food. My favorites.. coconut shrimp, crab cakes, mud pie.
Then on Sunday, we saw one of the employees at Carolee's church ! Chatted and now we are praying that the sisters will remember the best thing to do on Sunday.
|This is Marlo. She and her sister Shannon are the owners|
|Marlo and our little man became good friends|
So along with food and beach time, we made some other great memoriesThe first has to be... little man on a paddle board with our friend Dave ( Sunday School friend to my kids ) In the process of getting the board and paddle ready ( and managing the shop ) Dave came out ready to roll and little man was without a life jacket. But that was unobserved until they were out to sea... out to see turtles and what an experience for a 4 year old little guy. He got off the board and swam with the turtles ( unaware that he was in 30 foot ocean depth. He had a great time and I have to believe that in the years to come he will say " was I really that brave?"
Later in the week the two ( Dave and little man ) did some evening surfing. Little man was on his own for a couple rides.
Another great memory was connecting with Carolee. Our families have been good friends for years,
especially her Mom. She was a very dear friend of mine.Carolee took us to her church on Sunday. It was a very special time.
Then there was the final Friday night. Surf Side Cafe.
That is coming. a very special night.
