Fort Desoto… Day 675 19SEP10

Today was another great family day. The kids and Renee got up early and headed off to church. As soon as they returned we got ready to go to the beach and celebrate Miss Avery's birthday. Her b-day is actually the 22nd but thats in the middle of the week which is no fun. We got our gear together and piled into the cars for the ride over to Fort Desoto. The kids had a blast playing around all over the old fort and Avery figured out a new and unique way to view the scenery.

Afterwards we headed down to the beach for some playtime in the water and a great picnic lunch that Renee's mom had put together. More frolicking in the water followed before we loaded everybody back into the cars for the ride home. After a round of quick showers we headed over to Renee's parents for some dessert and a proper singing of Happy Birthday. The kids all had a great day hanging out together and I am sure they will not have any trouble closing their eyes tonight when bedtime comes.

It was a wonderful day and although we are all pretty tired from all of the events this weekend it is a good tired that comes from spending time with special people while doing fun things.

What a beautiful day to go to Fort DeSoto and so nice all the younger grandkids were together! It's amazing to see the pictures and see how much everyone has grown. Sounds like a great day to celebrate early for Avery.

Saturday sounds like it was pretty awesome also! A funfilled weekend with Joshua, of course, ending up making more money for the Children's Cancer Center with the selling of the candles.

You all are such wonderful people and we love you very much.
