We returned this weekend from a fun trip to Jamaica. No one was ready to come home. Ellery was asking if we could live in Jamaica, but only if she could bring her friends to come live with us. We went with my parents (Lulu and Poppy) and my sister and her husband. We ate, swam, ate, played at the beach, ate some more, played games, and flat-out had a fantastic time. Oh, and we celebrated Paige's birthday. Oh boy, do we have some funny stories about birthday cakes!

Ellery rode on a donkey one night before dinner
Price got eaten alive by mosquitoes the first day but was his usual, content self except when he was hungry, of course.

Doesn't she look old? Last time we were in Jamaica she was younger than Price!

She loved the sand and the water. She surprised us all the first day by just getting right in. (She doesn't come from a family of salt-water lovers. Pool water, yes, but salt water, not so much.)

Do you think we brought enough sand toys? Ellery even had a playdate with a little boy her age that lives in Jamaica. He was right out of Blue Lagoon. So cute!

This looks like it was photo shopped as Price was sitting in his bumbo for this shot.
