Lynlee's first summer was jammed packed full of traveling, meeting family, and fun in the sun. We spent the first week of vacation in Jacksonville, FL visiting her cousins on the Denton side. While we were there, she got to meet her Uncle Kelly, Uncle Tim, Aunt Jen and cousins Alivia, Reece, and Levi for the first time. She also got to celebrate PaPa's 60th birthday with a surprise birthday party that us kids threw for him. The next week we brought Aunt Katy home with us and she joined Lynlee and I on the "Grove Jr High Beach Trip." We spent the frst part of the week down at Myrtle Beach with the teenagers who spoiled Lynlee rotten! She loved it! The second half of the week Lynlee tagged along with me and Josh on a staff retreat down in Myrtle. Lynlee got to put her feet in the ocean for the first time. She was not impressed (as you can see in the picture below)! She would rather sleep in her tent! I don't think she realized it wasn't a nude beach :) She napped in just her diaper.
We then spent the next week with Josh's family on Fripp Island, South Carolina! She did a lot of first here. She rode her first golf cart, fed her first deer, swam in a pool for the first time and caught her first hermit crab. We had a blast! This was one of the most relaxing vacations I have ever had! I recommend this island for anyone with kids! It is laid back and full of plenty of things to do for both adults and kids.
When we got home from Fripp Island Josh and I had a Grove leaders camping trip planned in Asheboro so Lynlee got to stay overnight with her Gran and Grandaddy all by herself. Gran said she was an angel!!
