There kids are having major fun together. Gemma seems to be in a big "no" phase, but she says "yes" to Matilda more than anyone else around here.
Our trip is really taking us on a huge tour of family. The latest stop last night was at Uncle Dave's in Rochester, who graciously hosted a crowd of us to facilitate great cousin catch up time. After a whole bunch of pre-dinner backyard soccer, hammock and rope swing shenanigans, the kids moved in for music fun. Some piano time for Gemma and Matilda.

We are having such a blast here I can barely take time away from the fun to post photos, but here are a few examples of the good times we are savoring.

It was such a pretty sunset as we arrived home from dinner that we went out for a quick beach walk before bedtime. The kids found plenty to do and after watching a fisherman catch a sting ray earlier in the day, they were excited to watch for more excitement. After no time at all they were rewarded with a large fish and a tiny shark!
After they got the shark free from the hook the fisherman showed the kids is teeth before tossing him back into the waves. Poor guy was working hard to get out past the waves and got washed back up.
Porter got brave and took a turn grabbing him by the tail and tossing him back out!

Tim's office had this crazy equipment sale to get rid of a bunch of gear they bought for production on some show. The kids were not the only ones super excited to empty the full trunk and paw through all the new treasures.
This 10 man tent is ridiculously large, but for $30 who can turn down that fun!
The kids were most excited about the monster tent, while I was thrilled with the score of 3 new camelbaks for $1 each! I do love a deal. We are all looking forward to a camping trip soon to test out the new loot.
