Beach Bums

This past week the chiclets and I made our annual summer pilgrimage to The Babs and Mr. B's house.  Also known as Nana and Papa, they happen to live on the coast in the lovely, sweltering hot state of Florida. 

So we loaded up the family bus and headed south. 

And yes....that hula girl really resides on my dash....and she wiggles. 

A little time at the beach was in order for all of us.....


especially our own Toots. 

 

The Deerslayer enjoyed some time on the go-carts. 

And we all enjoyed the 4th with plenty of cousins.

Great memories were made and we are missing everyone already.

  6. Isn't this just exactly what summer is about? I posted some of these same kind of thoughts the other day. I swear that the child in us never forgets (or wants to!).

  11. We've got family in FL and we love to visit them in the spring.

    I love the sandy beaches with the tall grass growing in the background!

    Nothing like the smell of the sea air, especially to a midwesterner.

    :)

  12. I can never get enough of the beach back home but the traffic and my siblings is another story. Too bad we don't have a beach up here. That would be perfect:-)
