Beach







Oh, how I miss the beach already!!

We just got back from Panama City Beach this evening and we had soo much fun. I must say we were in desperate need of a family vacation. (well, I know I was)

The weather was just perfect! About 80 degrees, not too hot, not too cold. But hot enough to get sunburned!! We all were pink the first day on the beach except me...... I was red ripe tomato red and still am. Ouch, talk about hurting. I was even stupid enough to want to get in the scalding hot hot tub with the fam with a sunburn. STUPID!

We skipped the beach the next day and went to Gulf World! It was so much fun. I am not sure who enjoyed it more, me or the kids.

Check out this video of Duke the Sea Lion. He got some moves!

And the dolphins were awesome!

Wouldn't it be great to have a job where you got to swim with dolphins all day!

We hung out at Pier Park one day and rode the carousel at least fifteen times. ( all day pass was a bad idea. lol) About round six I was about to fall off my horse! It just took one round for Dwayne to be drunk! LOL Ain't he such a manly man!

Other than the normal sisterly fussing and fighting the whole way there and the whole way back and mostly in between we had one of the best vacations we have had.

Next time I will take the advice of sister S and make everyone, including hubby, wear pull ups there and back in the car. I am telling you what, we stopped 6 or 7 times on the way home for somebody to pee or poop. That would be stopping once every hour!!!


Cool breeze, white sands, waves crashing on shore, kids laughing, husband quiet (well for a few seconds at a time), the hour on the beach by myself, spending time with my little family. PRICELESS!!!!!!!!!!!
THE LORD BLESSED US WITH A SAFE AND WONDERFUL VACATION AND I AM THANKFUL FOR THAT!

IT IS GOOD TO BE HOME BUT IT SURE WAS GOOD TO BE AT THE BEACH!

You guys are tougher than us. We went to Coolidge Park last year, and it only took one ride on the carousel for both of us to be drunk! Glad yall had fun! Hope your burn gets better very soon!
