Last bit of summer.

We squeezed in one more beach trip before school started. 

These pictures make it look like all we did was eat. These pictures are probably pretty accurate. 

Karen made these from scratch. With actual flour and sugar. She is an overachiever, and we love her for it. 

Laura showed us how to make shooters out of salad.

 And taught me that I actually like grits. Cheese is key. 

I no longer believe in just one pie crust. 

But I swear we did more than eat. 

We learned that Karen does not mess around with her rum punch. Yes, that is a special tool for grinding nutmeg. I know, overachiever.

Between food comas, we did manage to make it out to the beach.  

Rachel and her fam also came down one day, and as usual I didn't take enough pictures. Marcus got stung by a stingray. The boys joked about taking turns peeing on him. The kids got along amazingly well, despite the fact that that by the end they were pretty sleep deprived. And we got home literally hours before the kids started their first day of school. It was a nice way to end the summer.
