A little bit of everything

Towards the end of the week, we all ended up down at the beach for a sandcastle building contest. This one did not win, but my girls helped out and had a blast.
This is a picture that I wanted you to see a miracle in action. I had prayed and prayed about the beach and safety. The day I was on duty, this is how calm the water was....super calm. And it was clear. I could see my feet even when we were out to our necks. I am telling you I let everyone know that God had done this for ME! For those of you who do not remember, last year we had sharks turn up on my beach duty day....see why I prayed?

The ducks showed up twice daily to be fed at our back door. They seemed to be health conscious because they liked cheerios better than white bread.

Olivia almost always chose the hot tubs over the pools and definitely over the beach. She thought it was so great that one of the days she had three Popsicles, cause her dad and I were not checking with each other.

Oh yes ma'am, I have a few more fans of Mah jong after this week.

Stephanie made some fans of the game Pictureka over the week too!

Olivia and Steph pooled their money and bought a new house for their Littlest Pet Shop animals.

Two talented ballerinas.



We picked our first tomato before leaving for the youth retreat. We all shared it.

These borrowed mattresses came in handy for watching tv and for sleeping on the floor in the condo. It was a wonderful time this year in St. Augustine...we love all those teenagers.

Looks like there was plenty of fun for everyone. The Ballerina pics are beautiful. I wish Abbie would not have gotten sick during the ballet. I never got a picture.
