We kinda overtook the balcony of the motel - but we put it to good use. Lots of food, laughter and just plain ol' noise *grin*!
So our days were spent at the beach - playing catch or building sand castles. I took my camera, of course, and tried to capture the essence of the holiday with my Nikon. It never does the experience justice, or maybe I'm just not that good at it yet, but here are a few shots of the hundreds I took.
But before I put those up, I just wanted to mention that it was my parent's 40th Anniversary this past weekend and how proud I am that their commitment to each other will be such a wonderful legacy for our family. Obviously, broken marriages have their stories and validations, but in the same way we support them, I think it is only fitting to celebrate those who's marriages have stood the test of time. We love you Mom & Dad. Congratulations.
OH. And my brother ... it was his bday as well and he's out of the hospital - all is well after his surgery - and he ate his piece of DQ Ice Cream Cake just nicely at his family celebration last night. *grin*. Happy bday, big brother.
Ok ... the rest of the pics. I'm off to make blueberry-lemonade popsicles for the boys with my Vitamix. Have a great one!!
