the beach.

smiling on the beach in destin with their cousin.  they loved, loved the waves.  trooper made a game of jumping over the waves and then snapping his fingers.  the boogie board was a hit all around.

as was the sand.  i think we still have some in our suitcases.  and shoes. scout dumped out a collection of shells on her bed at home only to have one walk right off!  that's right...we ended up bringing a hermit crab home.  the more the merrier, right?

 "I will praise You, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will show forth all Your marvelous works and wonderful deeds! I will rejoice in You and be in high spirits; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High!" Psalm 9:1-2

one evening we {i read on the boat} went snorkeling for shells and dolphin watching.  it was great fun.  dolphins are so graceful.

while most of the adults went deep sea fishing meme and i took the kids to a little amusement park.  you should have seen the kids driving their own go karts...look out world!

we were so happy that my cousin could make the drive from pensacola one night to join us for dinner.  he recently joined the navy {i think i have told y'all about him before..the one i used to babysit?} and we are SO proud of him!!  ain't he handsome?  {his birthday is soon...happy birthday cuz...we LOVE you!}

that's the highlight of the pics i took.  i could not locate my new camera and honestly, i just wanted to relax.  mountain man's parents and two sisters met us at the beach house and we just had a great family time.  but, it's always good to be home.
