My cousin called Thursday evening while we were out for dinner. "Hey, I heard you were at Hilton Head this week. Are you leaving tomorrow or will you be around? We're actually on our way to Hilton for the weekend and would love to get together with you guys." What are the odds?!Friday morning my cousin, her husband, and her three handsome little men joined us for a day on the beach and in the pool. And it was great because the boys had new playmates and didn't need Grady and I to do everything with them. (WIN!)
Micah is all about the actual hunt, but could care less once he has something caught. Hold it? Naw. Observe it? Who cares. Watch things crawl and pinch? Boring.
We had lunch poolside and then it was back in the water for more fun. Cannonball contests and diving after pool toys are way more fun in the company of friends. And, believe it or not, at the ripe ole age of three, four, and five, there was plenty of macho-tough-guy-show-off stuff exchanged between the boys. Really, comparing muscles already?!
I'm so, so thankful for the wonderful time away. I'm thankful for generous friends. I'm thankful for beautiful weather. I'm thankful for a luxurious place to explore. I'm thankful for a husband who thinks fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants outings can be a lot of fun. I'm thankful for three darling kids that gave me lots of smiles and laughter throughout the week. And, mostly, I'm thankful God chose to bless my family with this special week.
