The End

One of our early island discoveries was this barn with Mitchell's name on it. He was so excited. I hope to get this framed up and in his room sometime soon.
Sweet Avery was so sure that somewhere on this island she would find her name we were driving down the road one day she squealed with delight that she just saw a beach with her name on it. We did not have the heart to tell her that it was a road sign and that it was not her name. But she wanted us to investigate, so investigate we did and needless to say she was disappointed to find it really was just a road not a beach named after her.

Proof...after days of running in the other direction whenever anyone even mentioned a crab she finally got up the nerve to hold one herself. I think she was more proud of herself than we were. It is cool to see her conquer her fears.

Vacation was wonderful...we had so much fun being together and exploring this new place. Block Island is definitely going to be a destination for us again.
