At the beach again





We're back at the beach and the kids are loving it. Uncle David is here with us helping take care of the kids, and Mimi and Big Daddy also happened to schedule a vacation this week too. We have had a great time so far and will be coming back later this week.
Joseph and Holly are now experts in their floaty rings at the pool and are starting to warm up to the ocean. Joe gets a little scared of the waves, but Holly charges right in. Joseph is doing great and has been in the best mood since coming home from Memphis. We head back in early July for the next scan to make sure that he has pseudoprogression.

We don't have any video of the beach, but below are some videos that we were going to post before the last scans but never got around to it.

Adorable kids!!!!
Cracked up laughing at the Donald Duck impressions. Whenever I ask my son Nate, "What does the duck say?"
He croaks, "Qua, qua!" in a deep, husky voice that often isn't found in a 22 month old child!
Praying for you guys every night!
Love,

Loved Donald and the sweet sibling wrestling match (Andrew would call that playing "Cwaaaaah", or "Crash" as the rest of us humans would say.) Continue to enjoy the beach!

Great pictures and video!! We got back around 8:30 last night...long day of driving and Big Daddy had to make a sales call so that's what put us in so late. Woke up this morning and started to get my bathing suit to go to the beach...sure do miss you all! I had so much fun playing on the beach, swimming in the pool, and playing on the fun playgrounds with Joseph and Holly. Also enjoyed shopping and getting gelato and Starbucks with Gillian and eating the great barbecue dinners Allen cooked. Eat some shrimp for me and continue to enjoy the "fun in the sun".
Love, Mimi and Big Daddy

Well, we watched each video 3 times so far because Logan loved seeing Joseph and Holly. He's asking again as I am typing.
Thanks for the happy glimpse of the Peabody family having a blast together.
We miss you

I looked at several of these videos of Joseph today 8/23/08. He was such a happy and joy filled child. What a blessing he was to your family and you all were to him.
