Fort DeSoto Park

Saturday morning Daniel was feeling a little on the yucky side. His allergies are bothering him and he's been really phlemy. We've now missed going to church 3 weeks in a row. Fortunately, our church streams the service on the internet, but it's just not the same as being there.

We had a wonderful visit with the Fox family this weekend. They are friends of ours from Kodiak that happen to be visiting Florida. Megan was thrilled to play with her friend, Jordan. They are just two little peas in a pod. Kyla absolutely loves our cat, and Meow-meow is such a good sport.

This morning, the kids and I were going to head to the farmer's market for some produce, but after talking to Keith on the phone, we decided it was a great day for the beach. The kids and I drove over to go to have lunch with Daddy and then go to Fort DeSoto Beach.

The kids had fun checking out the huge cannons.

Joshua was trying to crank the handle to move the mortar.

Megan says, "it's like the yellow brick road, but it's red".

The kids had a great time playing in the water and collecting shells. The two hour ride back to the house was filled with snoring children.

Wow, I can't wait for summer! Just look at those palm trees -- you must be totally loving the Florida weather. :)

We had such a great time. In the midst of our trip, I completely forgot about meow-meow, but Kylah has NOT! She named herself (she always pretends to be a cat!) after your precious feline after we got home. Too funny! Jordan always makes a pretend Megan when she plays, especially now :) And I'm so glad you guys are taking advantage of the parks in the bay area... Ft. Desoto is one of our faves! Miss you guys!
