Warning: LOTS of pictures ahead!
Back earlier this
we went to the beach for a week of
MUCH needed R&R!
We've stayed at Wild Dunes before,
but this was the first time to enjoy the beach at that resort.
We love the emerald coast & the panhandle of FL,
but the east coast beaches are in my blood...
I would move in a minute if Daddy P said the word!!
The first couple of days it was cloudy,
rained a bit...
but still hot & great weather for exploring & digging...
(which was great, because mama needed a nap BAD)
While we were resting up,
Big O was back in TN doing this...
I won't lie...
I was pretty jealous!
They sent a performance evaluation in the mail this past week...
I had to read it three times to comprehend that this child measured as SIX FOOT, ONE HALF INCH TALL...gracious, I knew he was too big for his britches...but I didn't realize he was that big!! ;)
After the rain cleared a bit,
we had a good day in downtown Charleston,
I could wander around those streets for days & never be bored!
I decided not to haul my big camera,
all these pics are done with Instagram.
I love that my peeps feel the same way...
we walked for blocks without a single a whine or complaint...
they were full of questions &
constant to point out beautiful things they had spotted.
Miss O found her favorite house (pink, naturally).
So, of course Sneaky E had to pick out a favorite too...
I most enjoyed the bricks, I adore old bricks...
the Spanish Moss,
the cobble stone streets,
the joggling boards spotted in the gardens,
the color bursting WINDOW BOXES,
& the divine Confederate Jasmine...
Of course we also had to do some goofing off while we were downtown...
We had tons of fun & for June the weather was breezy & FABULOUS!
Unfortunately, E had an upset on the way back to the car...
He had a good time all the same. ;)
One evening that week we
enjoyed watching the dolphins play
in Shem Creek while we had dinner.
Every time we eat there we see a few!
My sister picked up Big O from his camp mid-week
and brought him and her boys down to the beach to vacation with us.
And mama was happy to have her big baby at the beach,
it's not a family vacation without all three of my little punks!
❤ Thank you, Aunt Kim!! Mwah!! ❤
We loved having some play time with
sweet William & Joseph!
It was a fun,
((But, there is not place like home))
((there is also no place like my own bed, whew))
Speaking of relaxing,
I'm heading out to the pool to finish this book.
I love Karen White &
this one has me hooked!
I hope you guys have a beautiful Sunday!
