Cousins Came to visit!

We have been having a blast with Blake, Derek, Witney and her friend Blayke!
I will be posting pictures and tell you a bit about what we are doing each day.
Day 1
The Kids arrived at midnight Sunday night. They stayed up watching a movie with Ben until 3am
Day 2
After sleeping in we spent the afternoon at the beach. They all got a chance to surf and swim in the warm Atlantic Ocean. It was HOT, HOT, HOT, for them!






After playing at the beach we had yummy Pizza made by Darren! 
Another movie all nighter.


Day 3 
The day started at noon at the Waffle House for breakfast. 
After a healthy dose of southern fried food. We piled back into one big black truck and one little black BMW for a tour of the Low Country whilst driving to Hunting Island.

Afternoon at the beach (video coming soon to Vimeo)
A storm was brewing off shore in the distance, we saw lots of cool lightning strikes hit the water.
After the beach Ben and Jacquie made Taco's for dinner.
Darren and I had a wonderful evening at the Temple. Two of the members of our ward went thru for their first time.
