Day at the beach

Well, I was totally wrong about the beach. She screamed. As soon as her feet hit the water she started screaming. So we spent most of the day sitting under the umbrella while she played in the sand. There was also a public pool beside the beach area and she wouldn't get in it either. She even cried when Joey got in. So, I think she will definitely have to warm up to the pool at home. The beach was very beautiful though. I can say I put my feet in the South China Sea! Jolea actually had a pretty rough day today. The drive to the beach was about 2 1/2 hours and she cried nearly the entire trip. All it takes is us telling her no and she has a fit. I think we need to be consistent though and not always let her have her way, but boy does she get mad. She is fine now that we are out of the van and back in our hotel.

Tomorrow we leave HCMC and head for Hanoi. We are still hoping to get seats on the plane leaving Tuesday night, but no word yet. We may not hear anything until Monday or Tuesday. Brea and Luke, we love and miss you!

Praying for your flight and Jolea flying home! I know how hard it is to discipline her but it will be "a little" easier at home where everyone is comfortable. Lottie still hates the carseat...actually she doesn't like being confined in anything. I think because they never have, especially someone Jolea or Emma's age. She is so beautifu; in that white bathing suit! I love my girls in white, must be there hair and skin color!

I LOVE the pic of Jolea in her ruffles and hat on the beach. That is so precious. Praying for a calm, safe trip home....
Love & Prayers
