Florida Beaches

The Florida beaches: Pensacola Beach, Panama City Beach, Mexico Beach, Ft. Walton Beach, and Destin Beach. The sand was white, soft, and clean. On the beach, I was transformed into a mermaid and in the ocean swam with a fish named Madison, all week long! The sun was warm and restful and the people were friendly. It was a perfect break for a summer vacation.

Girls At Galveston East Beach

We all had a fun time swimming and goofing off. Everyone got a litttle sunburned but I think it passed for Madison and Macy. My sunburn is still a bit evident!
Nonetheless, the water was awesome, clean, and perfectly cool.

Galveston Sandcastle Competition!

Galveston held its 23rd annual AIA Sandcastle competition this weekend. I have always wanted to attend but for some reason or another, I have not be able to.
Madison and Macy came along to see how it was done. We all enjoyed the beach and watching these guys compete.
We even spent a few hours out in the ocean..... way out there!!!..... swimming with the fish. For some reason, the fish were all swimming on the tips of the waves. Right as the wave curled, the fish were swimming and jumping as far as the eye could see. There were school after school of fish and we watched them swim by us for hours. Many of them even bumped up against us. It was a funny afternoon.

There were amazing artist talents present and although these are just a few of the best, all of the work was incredible!

Grandma's Garden and April's Love

Although Grandma Lois was the rightful owner of the garden in my back yard, April planted a lot of the seeds and flowers that continue to bloom each year. Among those, are a few of my favorites, the roses and the moonflowers.

Now, it's my garden and I gratefully care for it with the same love it received before me.

Hanging Out In The Treehouse!

Cooper and Lincoln were just hanging out today in the tree house. Madison and Macy joined in and had fun jumping out of the doors. It was amazingly cool up there when I took the boys up and I was surprised that the heat didn't engulf the area. Instead, the breeze blew through the branches and the shade cooled the air.
