Last weekend was great! My husband’s brother and his family came to visit. Our house was still very messy but they managed to overlook it and we had a wonderful visit. They arrived LATE Friday night. On Saturday morning my brother-in-law helped my hubby move the remainder of the big stuff out of our apartment. (So grateful!) Then we took them to check out Coligny Beach. Lots of skim boarding going on. I also saw an awesome sand castle being built. So cool! We then went and ate fantastic bbq at One Hot Mama’s.
On Sunday we took them to the reserve where there are gators, Spanish moss, and lots of lily pads. We got out and went down a little trail to a duck blind.
Everyone crammed into the duck blind.
Just as we were leaving my husband said that we were the ones being watched. He told us to look up.
Lizards and frogs lined the inside of the building.
Blurry picture but there were lizards and frogs all along the entire building’s upper walls. On the walk back down the trail another family was pointing up into a tree. There was a snake curled up on a branch. Tried to get a picture but wasn’t successful. We took a lot of pictures of family with the Spanish moss trees around.
Me, Brad, and Tim. Hoping to get a good pic to start thinking of Christmas cards.
Jason, Jodie, Ashlyn, and Nathan. Wonderful family!
Cousins being silly.
Brothers being silly. Duck Dynasty with Spanish Moss.
We really enjoyed their visit and wish they could have stayed longer. We are planning on visiting them in a few weeks.
The rest of the week went in a blur of work (too many hours), school, unpacking boxes, and finishing up at the apartment. I did go to the movie “Unstoppable” with Kirk Cameron. He reminded us that God is faithful and loves us even when we are going through very difficult times.
I hope you had a wonderful week and make a lot of memories this weekend!
