Last Saturday, I looked at Jonathan & asked, "Is it worth it for the boys & me to go to the beach?" I had packed what felt like our entire house - clothes, swimsuits, beach toys, food for Peyton, bottles, my pump, the nap nanny for Nolan...you get the picture. We were going with Jonathan to St. Simons Island, Georgia for a preaching conference. Jonathan would be gone most of the trip in meetings, break-out sessions, a golf outing, & a worship service. The boys & I were on our own. Jonathan answered, "Yes," so we were on our way with our car packed!!!
The weather was perfect, the boys were well-behaved, the hotel room was spacious, & Jonathan surprised me with an extra night!!! We loved it all! I even got TWO HOURS alone on the beach! (The boys & Jonathan all took two-hour naps...boy, they behave for him!) We got to see friends from seminary, Jonathan's peer learning group, & even make new connections that hopefully will be lasting friendships. Here are a few highlights -
The boys & I met seminary friends, Gigi, Lydia, & Susanna at the Pier Playground. Peyton had a blast!
