True Vacation

Friday, July 31, 2009
I have had about 2 and 1/2 minutes of internet this whole week (which is probably a blessing).We are having a fabulous time at the beach.  We are here with my sister, Dawn and her family.  The cousins are playing and the grown-ups are having a great time too.   For the past few years, I usually post each days beach photos but I will be honest...I have not taken nearly the amount of photos that I usually do.  I have been relaxing and rafting and body surfing and jumping waves with the kids instead.  Here are a few from day two (I think)....

  3. I love the pictures of Kate with her Daddy! Just so cute! I don't know where you are but I wish our beaches looked like this. Ours have lots of rocks and seaweed.
    I love both of Kate's swimsuits and would love to know where they were purchased.

  23. We had cousin time this week and one mentioned something about being friends and my P was like, "we are NOT friends. we are cousins" so there! I like the friends-cousin term. Blue store is wal-mart. Customers- some clearly on drugs, some really yelling at their kids- but the grocery prices so much cheaper. It's a trade off, for sure. But finding the Lilly juice made it sweeter! Enjoy the rest of your time at the beach. We go mid August and I can't wait!
