Vacation Time....2008!

Well, we began our vacation by stopping off in Prattville, AL at Mary Grace's Home for a lovely cookout lunch! Claire and Mary Grace are from the same orphanage and we traveled to China with Leigh Ann and her good friend Amy! We had a great time and the kids were good and tired when we got back in the car for the rest of the trip! Always great to see Mary Grace and her family!!
Mary Grace immediately took to Jesse, as he did her!
This is what I woke up to this morning! Ready to start their day on the beach!
Claire had a great time on the beach today. She actually prefers the ocean to the sand. She kept wiping the sand off all day and finally gave in and just enjoyed playing in it! She just went from relative to relative for snacks.....

Will post lots more tomorrow!!! We are enjoying lovely weather and company! We have about 50 family down here now and a blast is being had by all!

Hey, Hollingsworths,

I love following your posts! It is fun to see how the girls have changed. Maybe some day all three of the girls can get together!! We just got back from a short trip to Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, and Missoula, Montana. We had a great time but looking forward to sleeping in our own beds tonight! Have a great vacation and looking forward to reading all about it!
Love, Carla, Dave & Jillian
