As you can see we really haven't been doing anything touristy yet on vacation.  That will come though.  The past few days have been for catching up with family, shopping and relaxing.  We do have lots of fun things coming up over the next few weeks though so stay tuned.

Here are some photos from yesterday.  We took the kids outside for the day (seeing as it wasn't raining) so they could explore grandma & pa's property.  Jay and Callan (my nephew) fished for tadpoles in the pond and the babies explored the gardens and played with the dogs.

I found a STICK!!!!!!!!!!!  Marisol took a lot of time to stop and smell the flowers … and pick them all of the plants, smell them once and throw them away.

Marisol decided to go cross country.  Jay decided to ride down the stairs on his bike.


Flynn was having a fabulous time throwing the ball for Millie and making her chase after it.

Look at my happy little guy out exploring.  Look at my not so happy little girl, taking a break to let us know just what she thinks of all this exercise.

Lots of bumble bees for the babies to try and pick up.   Marisol testing the waters in the pond right before falling in and having to cut playtime short for a much needed bath.

Jay and Callan fishing for tadpoles.  Look at their collection … which were put straight back into the pond


Here's one that Jay caught in his hand.  Good job.
