Florida, Part 2, Activities

Some more active pictures from our Florida trip :)

Our beach set up- 2 shade canopies were very helpful!

Jackson loved jumping the waves.

One morning, Josh and I took a 17-mile bike ride down a state forest trail.
This baby rattlesnake was curled up in the trail.  Josh uncurled it's tail with a stick so we could see the rattle.  Curled up, it was only about 4 inches across.
Toward the end of the trail- it was hot and humid!

Topsail Hill Preserve State Park beach was much less crowded than the public beaches.

The storm arrived while we were at the beach.  We took shelter under a small awning while it passed.  Then we took our bikes out to explore the park while the weather was cool.

Florida, Part 1, Family Pics

Josh's immediate family decided to take a trip together to Florida this summer.  There were 11 adults, 5 kids, and 1 on the way.  Josh and I camped at Topsail Hill Preserve State Park, and everyone else rented a house together.  On the way to Florida, we stayed with some friends of ours in the Houston area that we hadn't seen in a couple of years.  Here are some family pictures from our trip.  More pictures are coming in a second post.

The whole family!
David thinks our pictures are always too serious, so we had to do a couple silly shots for him :)
