Put a Little Island in your Life!
We've been gone since I posted last night, but wanted to come home tonight so we could post a comment on Nikki's blog on July 29th - her day of 24 hour blogging for the Children's Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation (CNCF). She's done an amazing job and has raised nearly $1,000 thus far! We followed along via Shayne's cell phone, but weren't able to post until we returned home. THANKS, Nikki!
As you can see from the photos, we had a lovely day! And my mom is doing ok. I knew today would be a hard one for her as well. It's hard to believe dad has been gone for ten years.
After catching an early morning "Jet Express" we arrived at one of Lake Erie's twelve islands (South Bass), rented a golf cart and had a lovely time at Put-in-Bay! (Chris, we looked for your sailboat!)
Playing in a shady park on the island.
The girls LOVED daddy driving them around in a golf cart all day, what a hoot!
"It may be impossible, but I can always hope!" (Christi patiently waits for a butterfly to land on her finger. Finally, it happened!)
While Christi sketches in the "Butterfly House" a large, blue butterfly flies by and is captured via my camera, amazing!
Cooling off in an incredible pool before getting pizza, hearing more from our latest family book- "Room One" by Andrew Clements and catching "the jet" back to Port Clinton.
