vacaybeach   bubblesstorm

I think we only went to the beach once while we were in Destin and the day we went was a perfect beach day. There were lots of clouds and it wasn’t hot at all. And there wasn’t hardly anyone else at the beach either. We played in the sand and swam of course, but blowing bubbles was the most fun! The wind was blowing perfect and the bubbles were going all the way to the bridge!

We left just before it started storming and all took a long nap!


While we were in Destin the big boys went out fishing. They caught some big fish, but it was HOT!

This is what Earl loves!

the night of the 4th we got to watch the fireworks out by the pool. it was raining off and on so we stayed under the towel most of the time. but the boys got out in the rain and watched them finally. we did get our annual awful family portrait. and we got a picture of all the boys at least looking at the camera.

we had a great night!

 i got these square mirrors at ikea a few months ago. i finally put some pictures on some of them and had jeff put them on the wall in our bedroom. i absolutely love the way it turned out. i looks like art, but functions as a mirror.

well we are headed to the beach for a week. hopefully i will be able to post some pictures from there.

have a happy 4th!!!!!
