18 kids, 13 adults, 2 houses, 1 enormous fish and too much fun. Thanks everyone for the special family meals, for clean up, for pancakes, for daiquiris, for grocery runs, for cooler care, for no TV, for boat rides and bike rides and late night swims. Love you all.

We went over to Gulf Shores after school and spent 7 days together. There were lots of laughs, some great food and the blender only stopped to sleep. All the kids were fishing fools. Here are most of them. And then, some more of them.

3 girls, 3 hats, and 6 eyes are shining.

Kimaree and Georgia get close to some pretty special periwinkles.

James gets a fish. But not the only fish.

My Mom and Dad came in for Mother's Day and we went to Longue Vue House and Gardens. Really beautiful. Here's Claire in the Kitchen garden.
