Vacation Update

If you read my last post you will know that we are on vacation with the entire side of the Parris family - all 17 of us!! We are having a good time but it is VERY HOT! Today the heat index was 115 and we opted to go to the Ripley's Aquarium, with the rest of the people visiting Myrtle Beach! It was very crowded but a good way to beat the heat!! We are having a great time and sad tomorrow is our last day!!

2 posts in 1 day, what???

My van is so sick. It's been in the shop for a week and half, had 2 things fixed, $400 later we get it out only to bring it home and find ANOTHER leak and no one around can fix it yet. And we need to leave for the beach on Sunday! AHHHHHH!!

Toy Story 3

Our family (parents and kids included) is obsessed with Toy Story and we cannot wait to go to the movies to see it next week while we are all at the beach together! All 16 of us! 8 kids and 8 adults - that's a lot of popcorn and coke! We are so excited!

NOTHING beats a few marshmallows, a new bug catcher and
twilight in the mountains of Virginia!!

My 6 year old neice Jill (Jee for short, like you have to shorten Jill)

Molly, niece Joie (short for Johanna), and Jill in their "Rock Star" pose!

My sweet nephew Luke, catching a few bugs!

Ah Brody Man!

Cooper is sharing fireflys with Brody because he didn't think he had enough in his catcher! They can be so stinkin sweet sometimes!

My funny sister Tracy, scarfing a smore!

We have enjoyed every second of being home with our family in Virginia! Now home to "wash our unders" as Cooper says and head to the beach with 8 kids and 8 adults! We are planning hanging out at the beach and pool, taking in a Pelicans game, and going to see Toy Story 3!! We can't wait!
