Back and Busy


What can I say?...
Vacation was wonderful!


Sunsets that showed off God's magnificent handiwork!




Treats out with cousins!


Photos at the beach!


 Zac did some fishing...
 he even caught a small shark!


We all enjoyed playing in the ocean!
(Ignoring that Zac caught a small shark!)


Hours of body boarding...


And jumping waves!


And almost as many hours combing the sand for....


these!  
Can you find the sharks tooth!


We are so thankful to have spent this time at the
beach with my parents, sister and her family!


Now we are home,
busy getting ready for
 "back to school!"


But still dreaming of the beach!

It sounds and looks like a wonderful vacation. I am happy for you. I found the sharks tooth . . . a friend of mine had a large collection from his many trip to the ocean/Litchfield.

Looks like the perfect getaway!! Mine feels like a thing of the past and it was only 2 weeks ago. It's been very busy, sending my oldest off to college (well..we took her..didn't just send her.) and now getting ready for my younger one to start the school year. Lots to do!!

I'm so glad you had a great vacation! We just got back from the beach last week. My hubby found a ton of sharks teeth. They were tiny, I was surprised they were so small. I'm with ya on the dreaming of the beach. It's never long enough for me when we go. How I dream of having my own beach cottage! some day... dream on.... ;)

A trip to the beach sounds wonderful...glad you got to enjoy sand under your toes and salty air.
And glad Zac got the thrill of catching a small shark. I'm glad it wasn't the other way around!!! ;)
