July 4th Beach Trip!
Golf cart ride out to Walker's Landing, another mosquito hide out. This is a beautiful spot and we were lucky enough to spot a manatee swimming in the water. Wish I could of gotten a picture of him.
We have the best beach vacations ever! I hope in the years to come our boys remember all the fun times we had together at the beach. Like last year our York-Simmons beach blast was over the Fourth of July. It is a wonderful time to be on the Plantation at Amelia Island. They have lots of fun filled activities for the kids and families. I think that is what I love the most about all the festivities, they are all kid friendly! We spent a blissful 10 days on the beach, running, eating, playing and sleeping. This was the first time in a long string of family vacations that we were all 8 on the beach for longer than 2 hours. We were able to go out in the morning and stay out until lunch and the nap retreat. It was a wonderful trip, but like all good times they must come to an end...and sometimes these longer trips end with 8 folks screaming, "I am ready to go home!" Don't get me wrong we are usually one big happy mess, but when you have 4 kids ages: 2, 3, 4, and 5, the days are anything but boring with guaranteed end of the day exhaustion!
