Turtles, Turtles Everywhere!

[This post is dedicated to our sweet friend, Miss Lisa...because she loves turtles even more than we do!]

We took the kids swimming Wednesday evening at a resort pool and as we were getting ready to leave (amidst mass hysteria and tantrums, I might add) some people were gathered feeding .... something.  We checked it out and there were about 35 turtles swimming just below the deck gobbling up all of the bread that was being thrown in their direction.  Some of the kids were nice enough to share with my little kiddos and they were able to feed the turtles as well.
This was the first time that we have taken the kids swimming all together (Ems was with us last August).  They LOVED the pool, but there was no kiddie pool, so it was a little nerve-wracking for Daddy and I.  Clark and Kendall decided that they liked jumping in to Mommy or Daddy.  But they didn't always confirm that we knew they were coming, so it was a little crazy, but we are so glad that they love the water.  Plans to sign up for swimming lessons are a priority once we are back in Knoxville. 
More pictures from our fun in Edisto Beach are coming, but we are having some technical difficulties and limited internet access, so I can't make any promises.
Stay tuned.....
