We spent two days with our dear friends the Devers. Elise and Makayla really hit it off. They played in the kiddie pool together, read books, made smoothies in the play kitchen, sat next to each other at lunch, and even took naps together. Typical girls, they didn't go to sleep right away, but rather, they talked and made a little bit of mischief before settling down- yes, that's Elise asleep on the floor.Ray and Josh hung out and did man things, while Kim and I talked (surprise surprise!) and got caught up with family happenings. Elena and Rebekah just did their own things, but we hope they'll become great friends like their big sisters. We are so blessed to have such wonderful friends. Everytime we get to visit with the Devers' we feel refreshed and encouraged. They are a great example of a covenant family, and we hope our friendship continues for years to come. We're already talking about another visit so we can check out the beach... maybe camping in their backyard! Thank you so much for your hospitality!
We spent Monday morning at Colonial Williamsburg. It was so nice to be outside enjoying the beautiful weather and experiencing the history. We definitely plan on going back when we can spend more time and the girls can appreciate it a little bit more.
Yesterday we had a relaxing day while Ray went to work. He was back at the hotel by 3, so we went to a petting zoo and then out to dinner. In our typical family vacation fashion, we ate almost all of our meals al fresco. It was great! We're looking forward to our big vacation in a week and a half. The flight will be longer, but thankfully both Ray and I will be flying with the girls. What could be better than spending time at the beach with family and attending a wedding!?
