And The Beat Goes On!

What a fun time we are having! Went to Fort Mantanzas yesterday.......we had a picnic first before the beach.
I have been taking pictures of all my kids in this tree for 20 years.........the family tree is growing!
I did a little of this on the beach but mostly watched the antics of all the 'children'. Never a dull moment....Jared even rescued a 14 yr old girl from the water-she had gashed her thigh open (6-7") from a spill on her surf board-he scooped her up and carried her to her parents and while they applied pressure to the wound and waited for the EMT's, we packed up their stuff... Caleb got a nasty cut at the base of his toe while using his skimmer board-minor in comparison to the young woman's but it is giving him some mobility problems. Never a dull moment!

We celebrated David's birthday when we got back fromt he beach! He turns 7 on Sunday but we wouldn't all be together then so.............

The evening was full of happy bodies............


  1. It's so nice that the whole family are such good Samaritans. Back when Marsel and I used to swim in the pond with Jared he was more likely to hold you under than perform rescue maneuvers.

    Keep out of the trees, much too high, especially Matthew. That's how bones get broken!

  2. LOVE your tradition of the kids in the tree. We were just sharing some of our traditions with some friends last night. They said they don't have any...sad. Knitting on the beach? Who knew?? You must be having a great time with all the kids there. Enjoy while it lasts!

  3. Great to have all the family together - and it looks like everyone was enjoying themselves!

    PTL that you were all in the right place at the right time.

  4. I love the family tree, how lovely to be able to look back at all the photos when they have all grown up.

  5. It was a wonderful week...(wistful sigh)...
