Wordless Wednesday.....Another "YES" Day!

although tim had to be in meetings two of the days of our trip, the younger boys and i were able to FINALLY tour st. augustine (the oldest city in the u.s.!).   it had been several years since i had been there, and forrest and wyatt had never been!   we did not send forrest on the 4th grade (overnight) field trip to st. augustine this past spring, a fact that he told EVERYONE that we encountered!  so we had a fun time touring all the places that he had studied about this past year (the big florida history year!).  and i even said "yes" and let the boys dip their toes in the atlantic ocean!   enjoy!
wyatt would have dove in if i let him!
it was FLAG day.....see our flag shirts?
