From Indiana to Florida {Summer Fun}


As I’ve stated before, it’s a small, small world. Unbeknownst to us, J’s aunt, cousin, and family traveled down to Navarre Beach, FL just an hour from us. What are the chances that they would be so close to us during the same week? They are from Fishers, IN, a 12-hour drive to the sandy shores of FL. With three kids in tow, I am sure that is a feat all in itself. Well yesterday, they drove from Navarre Beach to spend the day with us.

We had a great afternoon, and Lucy loved playing with her newest friends.

Aunt Wanda is J’s mom’s sister. His first cousin Tracy is her daughter, and she is married to Craig. They have three children-Ellie, Everett, and Edward. They too love the beach but are not able to get to it as much.

They even stayed to dine with us last evening. My aunt and mom (Sugar & Honey) love to entertain, and they did in true Southern style. All left very well fed. The three kids were so polite and thankful.
