Its a Tough Life

Napping on the beach = heaven! We have had visitors for a month now so this is how Jesse has been catching up on some z's.

My parents arrived about a week after my sister so that their visits overlapped for 1 week. It was a jam packed week filled with beaches, a hike, swimming with dolphins, and a luau.

But most importantly, my parents just enjoyed time with their grandchildren all being in one place at the same time! It was precious.

Everyone lined up at our favorite burger joint.

Metal detecting with Poppy.

I was able to take my Mom sailing. It was a beautiful day.

The cousins had a blast they are at a luau. Asher and Anna are still sad that they are gone.

However, the Olsen family departure was followed by the arrival of some of our dear friends from Massachusetts, Rick and Wendy Picariello (with their son Isaac). Our first item of business was swimming in a waterfall.

As of right now, we are still having fun with the Picariello's. Asher and Anna are going to be sad to see another friend leave. Then after a month of entertaining, we are going to have to interject ourselves back into real sad!


  1. Mary that picture with your parents holding hands with all of the kids is one of the most precious pictures I have ever seen. It looks like you guys had so much fun.

  2. Those moments are so precious, and that picture with all the grandkids is the best!! What gracious hosts you have been for the past few weeks.

  3. Thanks for being such a great host!
