St.George Island Family Vacation 2009
When the day of the race was over, Bob and I headed to our annual family vacation to St. George Island. What a great way to celebrate the end of my race. Not only was I going to spend a week with my family, and extended family, Bob was going to be able to be with us for the whole week! No flights, no last minute schedule changes, but every day on the beach with his family. This is a special bonus for us.
We had a smaller crowd this year, because it was held in May, and alot of the cousins were still in school. Another great reason to home school, we can vacation any time we want! We still had a great time, but those that were not there, were missed. It was alot more laid back this year,the crowds were alot smaller, but the weather was perfect, and the company was excellent.
My brother and I were able to run in the mornings together,and this was a nice treat. The kids loved daddy being able to spend time with them,fishing, swimming in the ocean,and in the pool.We ate oysters at our favorite restaurant and sang Karaoke at our favorite pub. On our last day of the trip, we all went out to lunch and the kids got to pick out their souvenirs,little did we know, Bob and I were taking home a souvenir of our own:)
