Fun in the Sun

Monday, August 15, 2011
We are having such a good time at the beach with my sister and her family.  There are tons of photos and there will be tons more.  I have found that if I don't post as I go, I will move onto other stuff (like the beginning of school) and never record our vacations.  Hi Shelly and Jacquelyn:)  Dawn told me y'all read from time to time:)

I always get a photo of Kate sashaying down to the beach.  She is like her Mama.  She LOVES the beach. She can sit and play in the sand or just look at the water or boogie board.

Me, Kate and Aunt Dooney being silly too.

We made some friends here with a girl Kate's age and they are in the house next door.  Their little girl did a "make-over"on Kate yesterday.  This photo does not do it justice.  She had white eyeshadow all around her eyes.

My friend Paige, told me about Charlie's doughnut truck in Alys beach so I drove there at 6:30 am to get us fresh doughnuts.

Okay Shelly, if you are still reading, come back tomorrow to see something Ashton did!

And yes, Sara the doughnuts were good.  The sprinkles were a bit thick so I would recommend the more plain varieties.

  15. Kate is quite the little fishy isn't she? Looks like you guys had a great time. Do you think they make Kate's sundress in a women's size 2? :-)

  16. Love your photos! Always beautiful! I am planning a trip to Seaside for May. I am wondering if you would be willing to share the details of your house or rental agency? We live in SW FL, but love the beaches in the panhandle! Our email is the4morans@aol.com, if you are more comfortable sending it to me that way.

    Also, thoughts and prayers to Harry. Thinking healing thoughts.
