Fun in the Sun with Friends

Best buds...
We've just completed what I think might be one of the best weeks yet on Savannah.  Why, you ask?  A week with my best friend and her son, my amazing husband and son, and perfect weather in the Rock Islands.  That's why!

I'm not going to give all the details in this post as Jennie surprised me and said she would like to write a little guest post with her perspective on things.  I thought that was a great idea and seeing as I have no idea what she's going to write, I don't want to tell you all about it and spoil her debut.  BUT, there are a few grandparents out there dying to see some pictures, so I'm going to tease them with just a few...

Chillin' out in Palau

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything and you would think I had a good excuse, but I don’t.  We’ve been staying busy with T-Ball, Judo, and exploring Nikko Bay.  We participated in a Cinco de Mayo cook off (and won third place!) and we met some new friends who are vacationing here and have been spending a fair amount of time with them.  We've found our own little "jellyfish lake" and even had more fun play dates with Charlie and Carla.  Sadly, no pictures of any of it (it might have something to do with my new haircut).

But the big thing we’ve been doing is preparing for our first ever non-family visitors (and our first visitors at all since Mexico)!  My friend Jennie and her son Jett are making the long, boring, and expensive flight from the US to Palau…just to play with us!  We are so excited and not sure we can actually wait the 6 more days until they get here.  Jake has all kinds of activities planned for Jett and I have a zillion different ways to show Jennie how to relax and break free from her hectic world (at least for a week).  Andy is all ready to play with the kids and cater to us women.  Next week promises to bring lots of pictures and stories, so bear with me…
