And now we have chickens...

Yep, that's right! We are going to raise some chickens!

We have been eating so many eggs lately so it only made sense to have them fresh...

The kids have been really interested in taking care of them and learning about them. 

Aren't they so cute?! Never a dull moment when you live with JKJ! Who wants some farm fresh eggs?!

Last day in Paradise

Landon and Kelly went on another fishing trip on a bigger boat. They loved it and had a great time. The girls did what we do best... shopping! After we got the fishing and shopping in, it was time to spend our last day on the beach, soaking up the last bit of sun and fun!

This view will definitely be missed!

 Allie Ruth entertained herself quite well!

 The waves were much bigger this day. Landon had a blast riding the waves!

Pure Joy!

Allie Ruth would run out of the water and then cover herself in sand. I think it felt warm to her!

Landon went back to looking for treasure...

All the playing in the water and sun will wear you out!

Especially when you get up to watch the sunrise!

Landon dig himself a little spot and... 

took a nap too! Beach naps are the best!

This was a great vacation! So much fun and so many memories!

Fishing with Captain Dennis

You can bet if you are going to be with Kelly and around water that you are getting on a boat at some point! Kelly loves boats, water and fishing. He scheduled a charter fishing boat for the whole family to go on. We were glad he did, it was so much fun!

We went on a small, private boat with Captain Dennis. He was so nice, especially to the kids. We were supposed to say in the bay area, but since the ocean was really calm, he took us out about 2 miles.

The fish were really biting! We caught a lot of big keepers! We could not believe how high the fish would jump out of the water. We even saw several dolphins!

It was really hard work reeling them in!

Go Mimmie!

Yay Landon!

We were all pretty worn out after our trip but had a great time!

We went back to the restaurant for dinner. They cooked the fish we caught three different ways. We all agreed that was our favorite dinner of the trip!

Beach Livin'

We settled right in to the beach lifestyle! We loved playing in the water and taking long morning walks on the beach. We ventured out on our second day for a little shopping and lunch.

My brother and I have our picture taken at this same store with the shark. This is the store where we picked up a new pet... Hunter the hermit crab. Landon used his money that he had saved to buy the crab. 

We enjoyed lunch out. I ate oysters everyday, Yum!

Time to get back out in the sun and water! The pool was too cold for me and Allie Ruth.

Landon spent a lot of time swimming around looking and trying to catch stuff in the water.

Kelly couldn't stand it anymore and had to buy a fishing pole!

On Tuesday, we had a beach play date with some sweet friends!

So fun!

We ended the day eating dinner  at our favorite restaurant and getting ice cream from our favorite spot. 
Just like when I was a kid!
