Vacation 2009!!!

Well, first I'd like to say thanks for your patience. I've had lots of requests for me to update my blog, but we just got our internet connection back after 14 days! So, I'm way past due on posting, and will have lots more to post soon!

Of course, my kids live on the beach when we're there, and this is typical Jesse.......On the sand.....boy did he have sand in all his crevices!!
I love this one of Lance with the kids. They are smitten with their daddy!

My mom, grandma, and brother on the beach with us! We love you Uncle Tommy, Grandma, and Grandma Hydrick!!!

Last day.....not ready to depart...especially to a home with some storm damage!!!!
Promise to post soon! Love,Gretchen

More Vacation Photos.....

Obligatory family picture on the last day of vacation. The kids were so sick of pictures after the day was over!!
I love thisone!! Jesse catching a football in mid-air thrown by Lance!

Lance and Jesse went to a par 3 while in Orange Beach and had a really great time! Jesse got to drive the cart and loved that of course.....

Claire wanted that bulky lifevest on for the picture, but never wore it in the water! She didn't want anything on in the water so she could "kick the waves!"

On the way to Orange Beach, we stopped in Montgomery to see our friends the Hixons, who traveled to China with us! Claire and Mary Grace were in the same orphanage for 10 months! We see them yearly and the girls had a blast together. Thanks for the hospitality Hixon family!!!
