I apologize for the week-or-more-long silence!  I've been a bit busy packing everything in the house, slathering sunscreen on children, dragging almost everything in the house to the beach and back, washing sand off of same children, etc, etc.

We just concluded a week of beach time with the Jones Family and are now settled into another beach house a few hours further north for a week of quality Weaver Time.  Ahhh, such a hard life...

Although I'm not able to share pictures from here, I thought I'd at least share today's humorous Ben Tale. 

We spent Friday night at my godfather's place in Bethany Beach, DE before heading to New Jersey via the Cape May-Lewes Ferry.  About twenty minutes into the hour and 20 minute trip, Ben asked, "When will we be at Land Ho?"  We explained that "Land Ho" is not an actual destination but something that sailors might yell when they spot land. 

About 45 minutes later, he was thrilled to be with Daddy on the front deck of the ship when the New Jersey shore line came into view.  The passengers within ear shot got a good chuckle when he yelled "Land Ho!" in his most robust sailor voice.  :-) 

Ellie and I unfortunately missed out on the proclamation as we were "holding down" the rear deck.   She was entertaining the masses with nursery rhymes, finger plays, and children's songs...complete with bows and curtsies at the conclusion of each recitation.  Oh my...never a dull moment!
