 We feel so blessed that we were able to spend a week with Jeff’s parents on the beach of Brazil.  Here are some of the words that describe our vacation:
Jelly fish
Boogie boarding
Campeche Beach
Collecting shells
Sand castles and Sand cars
Eating fried fish, Shrimp empanadas, and Shrimp pizza
Christmas with Grandma and Grandpa
Sun tans, sunburns and going through 2 bottles of sunscreen
G-pa pulling Tyler’s tooth
Fun noodles at the pool slide
Picnics and Hamburgers on the beach
Games like Puerto Rico, Cranium Clay, UNO, Skip-BO
New Movies
Ingleses Beach
Bravo Beach
Paddle ball
Packing camping, beach and two weeks’ worth of stuff in our car
Obsession with Dorito chips
Game room
Trying to find a hotel and sleeping in our car
Big Waves and high tide
Surfers and windsurfers
Play ground
Santinho Beach
Grilling at the condo 

 Julia LOVED the sand.  She spent every moment that we were at the beach rolling around in the sand, eatingg it and getting as dirty as possible.

Joshua bogie boarding for the first time.  He really liked it and got quite brave by the end of the week.

I don't know if you can tell, but we are sitting in 2 sand cars that Ginny and Joshua built.

 The kids found lots of jellyfish - fortunately they didn't sting.

 Ryan bogie boardin'.
Sand castle toilet - it's a guy thing I guess.

It had been over a year and a half since we'd seen Jeff's parents.  It was nice to be able to finally introduce Julia to them.
