Thoughtful Thursday


Though I have missed all of you, it was a glorious week on the Gulf of Mexico.  Visits with my parents, being lazy on the beach, taking in the sights, and hanging out with the kids filled my time.   

We even managed to squeeze in some time with a starfish.  


We had to watch out for shark attacks.  


We found some humor here and there......


Our time with the dolphins won't soon be forgotten.  



I even learned that a pirate needs coffee just like me.  



Looking forward to visiting all of you today.

  5. Did you go to Panama City? Several scenes look very familiar. Our kiddos love the Pirate ship and we all love St. Andrews Bay there in Panama City. Looks like a week full of fun and relaxation!!

  9. That is a very beautiful and unusual starfish! Looks like you had a wonderful time. I live about 60 minutes from the Gulf of Mexico, in Central Florida. Can't beat the Gulf beaches!

  14. Looks like you had a blast! Even though we're not a big "beach family" there is something about the ocean that just sort of calls you. I think a trip down may be in order.

  18. Francine, it actually is real! I know it looks fake in this photo. The tag on the tank said it was a, "chocolate chip starfish". Seriously.

  22. How fun!~ We have a glimmer of similar sights if we can get through until the 26th! Between now and then is the 4-H/County Fair and all the chaos that goes with it. Projects are done, BUT in my humble opinion, a couple of the calves are NOT ready for my oldest daughter to lead into a ring. Major cow time will be in our future this next week! Prayers will not be turned away!

  28. Looks like so much fun, Michelle. My daughter actually go bit on the foot by a shark a few weeks ago. Fortunately it realized she wasn't a fish and let go. I think I will stay out of the ocean :)
