Family Beach Trip 2010

I can't believe how fast this summer has gone by. Is it really almost August? This is has been a wonderful and relaxing summer for myself and the girls. A few weeks ago we went to the beach with my whole family. We had a great time. We ate great seafood, enjoyed the sand/water, played games, and got to spend a lot of time with each other. We stayed in a beautiful house at the Martinque in Fort Morgan. This is our fourth year staying at the Martinque. We love it there. It is very quiet and a great place for a family vacation. We had two days of rain but that allowed for some great card games. We also played a new game called "Apples to Apples". Jeff bought it and it is really fun.  The girls loved the swimming pools. It wore them out. One day Logan even fell asleep while I was holding her in the pool. Give me a float and I could do the same! :) We also ate at our favorite place, The Oyster House. We love that place.

We were at the beach for the Fourth of July too! The place where we stay has a Fourth of July Golf Cart Parade. Every house has a golf cart and on the 4th each house decorates their cart and drives through the property together passing out candy, beads, and playing music. Jeff wished everyone a "Merry Christmas" as they went by him.....what a nut!!

We also celebrated two birthdays while we were there. On July 8th, Chris turned 34 and Major turned 4. We celebrated at Lamberts for dinner. Afterwards, we went to play some Putt-Putt and then headed back to the house for some birthday cake, ice cream, and presents.

The girls loved swimming at the pool. Libby loved her float. Logan...not so much. We weren't really that surprised by that. She loves her freedom and the float didn't give her any. (just like her daddy) Libby loved just floating around. (just like her mama)

We also took the girls to the beach. Libby loved the sand and Logan loved the water...go figure!

The best part of our trip was getting to spend time with family. The girls loved playing with their cousins. Logan learned a few new words while we were down there. She now says "mine". (Thank you Madyson) She also can say "Paw Paw". I know my dad is thrilled with that. She also says "No, No". I guess I taught her that. She sure hears it a lot.

Here are some more pics from the week.

Thank you Daddy for our chocolate sucker!!!

It was a great trip and we are already looking forward to Beach Trip 2011!!!



Adorable pictures, Jenni! I can't believe how big the girls are getting. I love the new playroom and I'm so excited you got everything settled with a new sitter. And, aren't family beach trips the best??! I'm so glad you are all having such a great summer! It is going way too fast!
