Beach Time!!

My little sweetie loves nothing more than being outside in her pool (with or without water)! Growing up I was always extremely obsessed with water and the pool. I can remember spending from sun up to sun down at the local pool. I absolutely love that Aubrey loves the water. I'm hoping to get her on a swim team as soon as possible!
My sis in law's parents own a beach house in Gulf Shores and they invited us down for the weekend. We usually don't take spur of the moment trips because I'm not a spur of the moment kind of gal...but who am I to pass up a weekend at the beach! We are also taking an 8 hour vacation later this summer and kinda wanted to test out how Miss Priss did on a long car ride.
I feel terrible for resorting to TV, but sometimes you just have to do what you gotta do. If a DVD player is what it takes to make a trip across a few states, then by golly, that's what I'm gonna do. So we had Barney and Curious George accompany us on our trip.
Snacks, milk and Barney make for a smooth road trip!
We had a wonderful time just relaxing and hanging out with my family. Friday evening we walked the beach and visited. Saturday morning we played in the sand and had a picnic at the pool for lunch.
Sweet cousins! Doesn't get any cuter than this!
Saturday evening we had delicious steaks and tuna and then enjoyed visiting with Brandon and Cherith on the patio long after the kids had gone to bed. It was just a perfect weekend. We headed home Sunday afternoon and I even managed to squeeze in a trip to the outlet mall.
So thankful for family and the fact that we love to spend time together. Nothing is more special to me than the fact that we consider our siblings our best friends.
Hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day!

  1. I agree that it's so nice to have kids that love the water! You sound like Carl. He wants our kids on the swim team too. A weekend at the beach sounds amazing and even better with cousins. Love that cousin picture. We use tv on our long car rides too. Snacks, small toys and lots of movies make road trips much better. I am jealous that y'all can go the beach for a weekend. It's too far for us.
