{Beaching with the Girls}

Good Sunday afternoon everyone. I hope that you all are having a wonderful Sunday and that tomorrow, July 4th, that you enjoy your red, white and blues. I just returned from from a short getaway to Fernandina Beach with my three daughters and we had such a wonderful time. We had one shower of rain but needless to say, I was a drowned rat! But oh did it ever feel so good and I simply just give praise for the much needed rain and time away with the girls. I for sure got the biggest soaking but then I can't move as fast as my girls! LOL!  Web image We had a lovely meal at the Boathouse one evening. We had about an hour wait so we walked around the historic district for a bit and oh my! I found the cutest little Christmas ornament shop. I can't believe I did not take any pictures. Especially when I LOVE ALL THINGS CHRISTMAS.  There is nothing like the sound of the ocean and the clean salt air to me.  We had brunch one morning at Sliders and one can never go wrong with Grits and Shr

{The Tans may fade but the Memories will last Forever}

Our family had a wonderful time together on our beach vacation. There is just something about those ocean waves and salt air that I love! The good thing is we only had to drive about and hour and a half to our destination so it made you feel like you were on vacation but yet close enough to go back home if you needed too.  And...late in the afternoons we spent our time by the pool which made it nice.  We even had our very own live mermaid ! The cutest thing was that our granddaughter Mallory would swim around with that mermaid tale on in the pool and there was one little girl that said to her brother with her eyes so big, "Look, there's a real mermaid" .  S he had all the little girls at te ntion. We enjoyed our grands so much and I can assure you that little thing probably walked 100 miles on that beach. Beach hair and we didn't care! Nothing like family.... This girl decided to rest and matter of fact,

{The Count Down Is On}

I am counting down days until our family beach trip. Until then I will share some happenings around the family this past week. My beautiful daughter Melissa and her husband Brad just celebrated their 12th wedding anniversary. They are also parents to two of my granddaughter's Mallory and Kyleigh. I ordered myself a new ladder stand for bow hunting and it came in. It's in one of my trees right now so I can practice a little before bow season. That thing went high in the sky and I decided It needed to be lower to the ground so off came some of the ladder part. Been baking cookies for a few church events and a few special folks as gifts. Strawberry cookies and so ever easy. They are my go to when I am pushed for time. And of course I couldn't leave my man out.   Watched these two grands participate in a Track and Field event that they have been t raining for all summer. It was so much fun oh my was it oh so HOT!      They both have m

{It's a Family Life}

Hey friends, I feel like I have been gone forever from Blog land since I missed last week blogging with you all. But, I have been busy with the family and loving every minute of it. My mercy! Now don't you just want to kiss those sweet cheeks?   We spent a fun day at a Aquatic Center which is only a little over an hour drive for us. The kids had a ball.   One side of the park was geared towards the younger children. The other side had swimming pool, a larger slide with tunnel for the older kids and the Lazy River that you can float down. It's a small water park but honestly, plenty to do and keeps the kids entertained. I love it that it is a day trip and it doesn't break the bank to go! They had things for younger and older children to do. My favorite was the Lazy River. Nothing like just floating down the river. I did let the older grandchildren talk me into sliding through a tunnel to the pool. YEP, done it ONE TIME ! Felt like I was having
