Day 2 in Florida

Nobody puked!!!!! What a great day!

Today was fun only a dab of drama...well, it depends on who you talk to. We started the morning with a trip to the grocery store. (Where the refer to shopping carts as buggys...how weird...)

Got home and Doug had gotten us Starbucks coffee, only after getting hopelessly lost...Went to the ocean with the whole crew. I had bought a couple of boogie boards and a basket full of sand toys for the kids. I thought that Wes and Jed would love the sand toys and the older two would get the boards...well, Wesley promptly declared the boards were his and screamed his head off anytime someone would take one. The surf was pretty rough today so it was great for the boards. The Ettema boys got "skim boards" they are skinny and made of wood. The idea here is to throw them on the inch or so of water as the waves come in and then jump on them as they move...Doug thought that was a great idea until he wiped out. Talking lots and lots of blood...

Then it was time to go up for lunch, time to gather up the kids..the only question is "Where's Christian?" He was right here...but now he's gone. 7 minutes we can't find him...the surf is high...where is he??? There are thousands of people on the beach...where is he??? Did he go up to the pool, where is he??? I turn around and he's right there crying his eyes out. He had lost his bearings and gotten lost. To his credit, he had found a lifeguard and asked for help...but it was a long and intense time of searching the beach for him.

The day ended with all of us at the pool for awhile and then back in the ocean. The kids and Doug loved surfing the waves...you should see Wes and Jed!!!! Colin got stung by a jelly fish...but took it like a little man...what a brave kid. You should have seen his face when Laura and I told him to pee on it! That was great! Laura says something like, "Come on Colin, do you think I'm kidding...when would I ever tell you to pee on yourself?"

We went out for dinner and Jed got his picture taken with a bird on his head...wait till you see it!!!

Just a little drama from the Biermas..and Ettemas...we are waiting for the drama to begin from the Deckers, it seems their life is too easy right now doesn't it?

Have a great Tuesday! Love ya all!
Christine

Wow, that's a crazy 2-day experience. Can't wait to hear the details about the rest of the trip. For your sake, hopefully no more drama!

Hope you get some relaxation in on this vacation. What memories! It's making me a bit nervous, though, for our cross country trip coming up in August.

Sorry that we didn't provide too much drama for ya! God knows who can handle it and who cannot, I suppose.
