I'll add more pics later, but this is us surrounding a jellyfish we found at the beach on the day after thanksgiving. We went to my aunt and uncle's house in Suffold for turkey day and the next day had a picnic on the banks of the James River with leftovers. We found crabs, jelly fish, catfish, and even tried to stop water from running to the ocean. It was a guy thing. It was really great to see my cousins again. I babysat them growing up and haven't seen them since they moved East Coast. The guy in the middle, Simon, was my little cuddle bug. I remember when he was a baby and me and my sister were babysitting for the whole weekend while their parents were at a meeting. Simon had colic. And at age 14 I will ALWAYS remember my first night with a colicky baby. Over the next 6 years he went on to become my cuddle bug. Now Ellie's a cuddle bug, and he's her favorite - and when he has kids Ellie can babysit!! It's pretty much the circle of life!
We loved the visit, Ellie loved their barbie home with the barbie stairs . . . we had a great time visiting, going on walks, laughing, and watching Chicken Little. Can't wait til next Thanksgiving :-)
