A Grand Time in Grand Isle

Over Labor Day weekend we were lucky enough to score an invite from the Guillory/May/Neyland clan to join them at the camp in Grand Isle for some much needed R&R.  After a midnight ride to the gulf, we woke up on Saturday ready to get the party started.  Sadie needed protective gear for the festivities...
Actually, Mrs. Betsy, Kelly, and I were the ones who needed protective gear, or a head exam, one or the other.  We took all 5...count them, ALL FIVE...girls to Walmart to do some grocery shopping.  It was an interesting trip.  Stella found a hat that she liked...

I guess this is her Shiloh Jolie-Pitt impersonation?  Who knows...

What a ham!  I think she was excited to be out of the Tahoe with the most per capita car seats in the U.S. for a while.  Seriously, we felt like the Duggars...

After our shopping adventure, the men returned from their "fishing" trip with crabs.  Huh? How do you go fishing and come back with crabs?  Apparently the fish weren't biting...

Awww.  Talia loves her daddy...

When the older girls started playing in the water Cille had to get dressed for the occasion...

Check out that suntan!

Talia and Stella realized the importance of staying fully hydrated...

Cille tried to butter me up so I would let her in the swimming pool..

Stella tried out another hat...

Later Dara and Matt arrived with their baby.  He's the furry one that Sadie's holding...

Stella was a big fan of the puppy...
Meanwhile, all that fun in the sun wore Cille out...

Everyone was welcome in Talia's pool.  The baby doll took a dip, even though she forgot to pack her swimsuit...

A hammockful of girls...

John's "How to Eat a Crab" tutorial...

Yummy!

Stella was a big fan of the crab.  Seriously, Damon could not get the meat out fast enough for this child.  Add that to her love of crawfish and frog legs and you've got a 100% Cajun baby.  How did that happen? I know I gave birth to her.  I mean, I was there...

Talia decided to take another swim.  She did not see dry clothes as a hinderance...

She was finished with those clothes anyway, because it was time to put on her cheerleading outfit for the big game.  Go Tigers!  She was teaching Cille the cheer...

Since Emma's birthday was coming up, we had cupcakes to celebrate.  I am now planning to invite Emma over the next time I need to frost cupcakes...

Talia was our quality control expert...

Cille got lots of cuddle time in over the weekend.  Here she is with Dara, the fabulous photographer who you can read all about on our blog, but rarely get the treat of seeing because she's so great behind the camera...

She also cuddled with John and Talia...
