This year we went up to the island with my sister Julie and her 5 kids ages: 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9. They live in Texas, so we only get to see them every couple of years (the last time was in 2004). The kids had the best time fishing, swimming, making a "secret" hideout, and just running around together. We had several trips into town, one of which we went out to dinner with my aunt, uncle and 2 cousins who live there. Julie went home Friday, and we stayed until Sunday. Another vacation with great memories.
Ed took the kids around the island in the kayak-- 4 trips in all
The older children went behind the boat on the "mambo"
N absolutely loved the boat-- his favorite part of every days was when he went on the boat "My go fast, fast, faster!" He insisted on sitting in the very front, even if he was all by himself, and he would say "This is going to be fun!" when the boat started to speed up.
Everyone loved the hammock, even K fit in a little nap
We made a fire the last night the cousins were there, and roasted marshmallows.
