Cooking Class with grandma Cersey

Tomato Basil Tarts

So I decided this sumer I wanted to have a cooking class with the girls each week because they both like to cook so much. Well, then I got sick and we were so busy we only got to have one class. The girls love the tomato basil tart that my mom makes and this is what they wanted to learn to cook. They had such a great time and were so pround of their tarts. They were really yummy too.

Weekend at the Beach!!

DAY 1 July 2nd
My parents decided they wanted to take the family to the beach for the 4th of July Weekend. It ended up that only us and the Cano's could make it. They rented a nice house on Ponte Vedra Beach. It had a wonderful view with a pool right out the back door. We were staying on a private beach so no one to bother us. It was so Awesome. My parents and us left on Wednesday July 1st and drove half way. We stayed in a hotel and got up the next morning and went the rest of the way. Of course we had to stop for a Dairy Queen. We can't go to Florida with out making that stop. I was completely sick on this trip, due to being pregnant. It was not a very fun drive. Lots of throwing up. Once we got to the house about noon, We had the the whole day to play. We took the girls down to the beach, which was just a few hundred feet out the back door. We spent a few hours there and then came back to the house and went swimming. The pool was like taking a bath it was so warm. We had some dinner and then we went back down to the beach to take some family pictures. Jenn and Albert didn't get in till about 8:00 that night.

DAY 2 July 3rd
We woke up this morning at about 6:30 and went down with the kids to the beach to see the sun rise. It was so beautiful. The kids were so excited to look for shells. We walked down the beach and they all collected a bucket full of shells.

After Breakfast we headed down to the beach for the day. We spent most of the day at the Beach and a little while in the pool. The kids and adults had a great time boogie boarding. Albert and Ethan with a little help from all the girls built a huge pyramid. We also saw some dolphins. Alexis finished off the day with a yummy ice cream as you Can see in the pictures.

DAY 3 July 4th

More fun at the beach!!

Down to the beach for a firework show that lasted forever!!. We were able to just sit on the beach outside the house and watch fireworks on every side of us. It didn't matter where you looked you could see fireworks. We had a few crazy moments with the drunk people in the house beside us. They set the grass on fire a few time and dad had to go over a yell at them. It appeared that they threw a firework right at him but I can't confirm that. Alexis fell asleep and then woke up to the fire and Emily was really scared which scared Alexis too so Jenn took them inside and put them to sleep. The older kids did some sparklers and set off fireworks with Albert off the pyramid they built yesterday. It was a great night.

Day 4
we left today at about 11:30. The drive home took us hours on end. We got home around 9:30 or something like that. There was a big rain storm which made us sit in traffic for hours. We stopped for dinner at Golden Corrall. We have a great weekend with the family. Thanks mom and dad for taking care of us.
