When It Rains.....

So, I have spent the last few weeks painstakingly planning our first "family vacation" with Jack. I've spent the last couple of days frantically packing our swimwear, sunscreen, hats and towels in anticipation of the true beach experience. We picked up the kids yesterday and headed due east, straight to the Atlantic Ocean. At this point I'd like to reference the pictures below. See the one that is dark and rainy. Yeah. That one. Well, that was us at about 6 pm last night. Jack's first glimpse of the ocean. Not unlike mine at age 18, remember, Lisa? Atlantic City. I digress. This is NOT Atlantic City, this is St. Simons Island, GA, and it is stormy and rainy and has been since we got here. BUT we are together, and really that is all that matters. So what if I paid an arm and a leg to be as close to my beloved ocean as I could be? We are eating well, sleeping well, and still having fun, no matter what. Well, Jack could sleep a little better, but who's paying attention (although we are very grateful for the king-sized bed since Jack takes up most of it). More later......

Oh bummer! I'm sorry you are having so much rain! Here's a solution for the next trip...come visit us here in Peru! We are just blocks from the Pacific ocean and we are in the DESERT...so it NEVER rains! :) ha ha! Glad you are enjoying your time together even with the rain!

Even in the rain St. Simons is quite beutiful. Has a great history too. Its better in the rain than Jacksonville in the sun. I guess this means that a trip to Atlantic City or Ocean City is in order. Give Jeff and the kids a real ocean experience. Enjoyed talking to you by the way.
