|Nothing like waking up and heading STRAIGHT to the BEACH!|
|In Mamaw and Papa's van...literally woke up 20 min before heading out on the road....sleepy but SO excited!|
|We see PALM TREES|
|Not even checked into our condo yet, and kids are already in the pool! This is a traditional spot for them each year.|
|I love my Claire Bear, and I am crazy over the fact that she is completely growing up so fast!!!|
|I took this picture right after the words "REMEMBER YOU HAVE A CHOICE, BE KIND AND PLAY TOGETHER OR BE UNKIND AND DON'T PLAY!!!" They chose to hold hands...LOL!|
|Patio time with Papa|
|Handstanding on the sand! Really the girl handstands everywhere though...I probably have a hundred pics like this one all over the earth!|
|My girls are growing up...I started taking this kind of pic when Claire was Jenna's age and Jenna was in a baby seat!|
|Playing in the sand with Daddy....and this is a perfect example of a loving, selfless father (doesn't like to play in sand at all but loves to play with his sons) so therefor he "plays in the sand" ...LOL|
|Handstanding on the beach....or trying too! LOL|
|Momma Bear still got it! Whoo hoo baby...|
|"Mommy caught me a hermit crab!"|
|Dinner time....who needs fancy overpriced salads at the Whale's Tail....Momma Bear can make a fabulous bowl of greens and goods!|
|Jenna saying good night to her "sweet lil crusty, crab" |
She named her "Crystal" from Crystal Beach...
|CANDY CRUSH with Dad!|
|now that is some GOOOOOD sleepin!|
|LOVE this lil grin|
|ALL DAY LONG....|
|ALL DAY LONG|
|Laughed so hard watching and listening to the kids swim with Mamaw. Such fun!|
|CANDY CRUSH with Dad..AGAIN|
|The handsome Men in my life:-)|
|I love early Mornings with my Claire Bear....she is NOT a morning girl!|
|DEFINITELY NOT a morning girl...lol|
Rob and I also celebrated our Anniversary while at the beach. 14 years of a beautiful marriage, that only our Creator is responsible for. Rob and I couldn't take the credit for our success in our marriage, because we are too selfish and broken as humans. We have to credit to the One who SUSTAINS us, through all the facets of life. I can honestly say I love him more now than I ever have, and I pray daily that the love we have is protected and preserved through our Lord Jesus as "life" continues on.
Thanking God on this beautiful morning for so many gifts in my life....my husband being my first!
|14 years ago we took a picture like this in Cancun Mexico on our honeymoon. We were so young and dumb...but SO in love and still are today!|
THE BEST MEAL....EVER! So yummy. We will definitely return to the Marina Cafe!
And so the end of our week, as Momma Bear always wants to do, we took family pictures. Here are a few of the best ones...No way would we have these fantastic pics without our fantastic photographers...Papa and Mamaw!!
|1, 2, 3....TEAM PATE|
(This family is totally a team effort...)
|Wind was out of control...we were laughing so hard, trying to get everyone looking at the camera in the split second the wind was not gusting around us...And John David couldn't stop loving on Mamaw...it was funny!|
|NO CAPTION...Think she is ALL DONE with the family pics...HHAHA!|
|Learned how to chicken fight in the pool so they wanted to try in on the sand. Goofy lil guys.|
They keep us laughing!
|That's my girl Jenna, side planks on the sand like Momma! LOL!|
|Natural smiles are the best!|
