The Brockett's Visit

The Brockett Family migrates South. In 20 hours they went from 7 degrees to 75. Wow, I think I would migrate, too!
We had such a wonderful time while they were here. Thank you Brocketts, for blessing us with your visit. Here are a few of the 750+ pictures we took that week.

From Apples to Oranges.
Pure Florida Gold!!
How many people can REALLY fit on a trampoline?
I think there's room for a few more.
The all new LOUD game of Pit/Spoons.
How bout some 4-square?
These people are serious about this game!! Football in the cow pasture.
Makes for an interesting game. Thomas looks determined.
Amadu looks confident. Looks like Tom's confidence ran out:( Mary looking for someone to tackle.....
She found Jordan..... And Adama.
Making a Joyful Noise in our Hearts to the Lord.
Out for some boating adventures.

Having DessertWe arrive at God's beautiful ocean. (Melbourne Beach)

(If you're wondering about the jackets, it's cold and VERY windy.)But never too cold for swimming....
But, on second thought, maybe it is.
James and Adama digging a hole.
The littles did go in the water.
Sometimes, ya just gotta do what ya gotta do.
The sand was blowing in our eyes, mouth, ears.
Well, you get the idea, it was really blowing.
Time for some beach foursquare on unlevel sand.
Playing on concrete after this was a breeze.

We think it's cold when it's 50? It gets 70 below there and the ground never thaws. Brrrr.
It's been a great day.A trip to "Ft. Matanzas" in St. Augustine.

Well, what do we have here.
Could it be, foursquare, on wet, packed sand?
