We had the privilege of hosting my oldest sister and her family at our house over the weekend! This was their first time to Florida to see us. We had a great time and the days went by so quickly! They are in GA with another sis right now and tomorrow we are going up there to spend the day together! Then we get to see them again in PA next week!! :) :) That is very unusual to see my sis 3 times in 2 weeks time!! :)
A few pictures from the weekend....they got here Friday morning after driving all night and left Monday morning.

Merv relaxing with a book....

I enjoyed hearing piano music!! :)

Fun games of Apples to Apples!! :)

Coffee to stay awake!

Sonya and Neil :D

Saturday was Stephen's 11th birthday.

Where does time go? They grow so fast when you only see them once a year or so!!

~Lego Time~

Sonya reading....it was a little more boring here for her since there was no one her age and Neil had left Sat. morning to spend the rest of his time with his GA cousins.

Saturday late afternoon we headed to the beach! It was a beautiful day but the waves were pretty high. There was a red flag flying.
[The red flag indicates "High hazard, high surf and/or strong currents."]

We didn't spend much time in the ocean side at St. Andrews, but instead went to the bay side were the water is more shallow and the waves were much smaller!

Ocean side.....

Bay side....

A big freightliner that went through! The thing was HUGE!!

Building castles in the sand....

Tamara and Anne

Danny and Stephen

Stopped for supper at McDonalds on the way home.

Henry's Internet Cafe' :)

Merv, Joanne, Sonya (15), Anne (12) and Stephen (11). Too bad I didn't think to take a picture while Neil (17) was still here. Maybe I'll get one of them all tomorrow!?? :)

Today I need to take our van and get an oil change and the tires rotated....and most likely a new tire :P before we head north! I really need to get my mind in travel mode and start getting stuff together for our trip to PA this weekend. Can't wait!! :) It's been 1 year and 4 months since we were up there and I have a new niece and nephew and a great-niece to meet for the first time!! :)
