Melissa, Tim and Peyton joined us for a few
days of holiday family fun in Hilton Head Island.
Peyton and Austin could not resist the ocean.
However, the indoor heated pool was their favorite.
We go to Hilton Head every summer for a week, but
this was our first Christmas break trip.
Dinner at the Salty Dog Café is a family tradition.
We watched movies, played board games,
miniature golf, shopped, and enjoyed great restaurants.
Our New Year's Eve celebration included a delicious dinner
and flaming desserts at Hugo's.
And, an early birthday celebration
for Peyton who will be 9 years old in a few days.
A ukulele like Austin's.
We arrived home New Years Day afternoon.
2013 was filled with many adventures
both good and difficult, and many great opportunities for
fun travel and afternoon teas.
We are thankful for many blessings, especially
Melissa's continued recovery from October 30th open-heart surgery.
