What a Vacation!

What a vacation--We were on the go the whole time. Here are a few highlights....

-ear piercing for the 7 year old twins.
-preparing for the big hula party
-14 little girls at the pool for a hula party for 4 (yes 4) hours
-shopping at the outlet mall
-a second birthday party on the following day at the beach
-crab and shrimp for dinner
-no naps so crabby girls
-an overall amazing time but boy am I tired

Finally on Monday we got to go to the beach.

It was the perfect day. The weather was beautiful and the water was warm. We grilled, built sand castles and had a few cool ones. The kids were great. Sharon and Larry were the best hosts and the day was exceptional.

I would love to have more days like that--you just don't get them in the Midwest.

When I came home, this is what I found. Fresh flowers and the deck all stained and water sealed. (I did get the table and chairs done before I left.) Cowboy finished the deck and it was looked amazing. He also got the yard all mowed and the house picked up. What a keeper.

The best part of the whole trip was the new Coach bag. Cowboy thinks I got a great deal...$50 dollars. That's about a $100 close. I had to have it. They have great outlet store in St. Augustine. I just walked around the store petting the purse and wouldn't hand it over to the clerk until I just had to.

I got home very late and am very tired.

Sounds like you had a great time. Love the picture of all the little ones in their hula skirts. Where's the pic of you in your hula skirt? :)

Even though I am not a purse fan (yet), I do like your new purse.

OK, I hope that crab & shrimp for dinner was every day!! I love the east coast of FL, although I've only seen it a bit south of there. The water is tolerable there, unlike the Pacific water which is frigid, IMO.

Great bag! And in red, you wicked woman!
