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.
