Beach, Baby

Hello out there in Blogland!

I'm sorry that I've been MIA for the past couple of weeks.

I promise, I have been working on some fabulous new creations that I will be sharing soon.

In the meantime, I just wanted to show you a little of what I've been doing while I was gone.

Together with most of my Dad's side of the family, we rented a beach house on Emerald Isle, NC.
While we were together, we:
Made a list and Packed accordingly.

We traveled, 

hung out in the airport
then traveled some more.

When we got to the house
 we unpacked

and took over the tiny local grocery store.

For the rest of the week, we:

Munched on yummy goodness from back home.

We walked on the beach.

We colored pictures.

 We Bar-B-QED.

We got VERY impatient when it took 45minutes to get a slice of pizza.

We fished on the beach.

We swam in the ocean.

We surfed.
(well, sorta)

We ate & ate & ate.

We finally found a way to watch the Cowboys game,
and we won!

We enjoyed the view from our balcony.

We played games.

We celebrated

and gave gifts.

We watched Chase use Grayci as a trampoline.
(no teenagers were harmed in the taking of these photos)

We looked at the world from a different perspective.

We napped.

We hung Granny Panties from the chandelier.
(you might not want to ask too many questions about that one)

We explored the area.

We learned things.

We got to run for 1 minute.

We gained some perspective.

We bonded.

We picked up shells on the beach.

We shared cocktails

and then laughed

and laughed

and laughed.

We visited the police station.

 We took group photos,

and family photos,

and sibling photos,

and generational photos,

and cousin photos,

and parent photos,

(some turned out better than others)

and classy photos,

and Auntie photos,

and couples photos,

and kissy-face photos,

running-on-the-beach photos,

casual photos,

and people-who-are-really-friggin-sick-of-having-their-photo-taken photos.

We watched the storm roll in.

We found the beauty in our surroundings.

We put our toes in the water, ass in the sand.

We played football on the beach

and just enjoyed our time together.

So, what have YOU been doing?
