St George Island-Day 1

Well, after a bit of a harrowing road trip yesterday (it resulted in me buying beer at 3 pm and getting my MIL to drive the last 10 miles so I could have a drink), we finally made it to the island. We (meaning the adults) unloaded the two SUV's of STUFF that we brought. Jason took the kids to the beach. It was a balmy 51 degrees. They started digging in the sand and dipping their toes in the ice, I mean, water. I started unpacking and organizing the kitchen. You can't stay somewhere for a full seven days and not unpack, in my opinion. By the time I finished organizing the kitchen, the beach light was perfect for a few photos!

After taking a bath in a swimming pool sized tub, we bedded the babes down and they were asleep within 5 minutes. The grown ups tried to stay up until 10, then we passed out too.

This morning we all got up at 7:30 and were on the beach by 8:00. Lots of making sandcastles and fishing went down, then I started getting stir crazy. It wasn't exactly laying out weather this morning, so we (my MIL and I) decided to load up and go into "town" and rent bikes. Well, these weren't the bikes of our past.

Look at this bike! The kids go in the front on the basket, and the grown ups
peddle. It's called a surrey. It was quite fun, but a super workout!

Playground break!

And as if we didn't have enough exercise, Emma wanted to climb the lighthouse. 
So we went up 92 stairs and a ladder. 

Then Emma declared that the bike riding was "hard work" and we needed ice cream. 
Ugh! I needed a giant coke!

So much fun so far! Now everyone is taking a nap but me! I'm going to find my library book and chill!


  1. You guys are so cute - have fun!!!

  2. Hopefully it will warm up so the kiddos can play in the ocean! Looks like you are having tons of fun!!
