For the first time since he was born Stephen will
miss our annual family beach vacation.
So I had to take him to the beach so he could at least see the
Atlantic Ocean and spend some time with his
brothers, sister and cousin.
We called the trip East before West.
He had to go east one last time before heading west.
He had fun with Matthew, Adam, Samantha, and C.J.
The weather was perfect!
Adam was silly!
So was Sam!
We hung out on the beach and by the pool.
We ate most of our meals poolside.
We had a great time.
The day after we got home from the beach he
boarded this train headed to Raleigh to visit his grandparents,
cousins, Aunt Michele and Uncle Jimmy.
He wanted to go fishing on Pappy's boat
one last time before he leaves.
We have one last celebration Tuesday night.
Then Wednesday he will take off!
