"Can we go to the beach, Mama?"

Photobucket
The beach was totally fantastic! The weather was better than you could dream and the water was beautiful! John Luke enjoyed every minute! He was constantly asking if we could go to the beach. "Are we going to the beach, Mama?" "Can we go to the beach, Mama?" I would say, "Yep, we're going to the beach." And he would say, "WooHoo!" I think this year was my favorite yet!

A big thanks to Pa for letting us crash his party at the fantastic Hilton! {He was having some kind of class for work there all week, & invited us to come play while he studied.}

Thankfully, John & I got a night to ourselves Thursday and enjoyed dinner together at a restaurant in the hotel. Let me just say we will never be dining there again. And it's not because of the food, but more like the prices on the menu!!! Oh My Goodness!!! Anyway, the food actually was very tasty, and the time together was more than awesome! Thank you Mama and Mamy for keeping our munchkins!

Looking at these pictures are going to make me cry! I missed all the fun! Thanks stupid school! I know y'all had fun but not near as much fun as you would have with me there! The last pic of you and John is the best one I've see y'all take in a long time! It's a framer! :) I love y'all! Can't wait to be home for good so I won't miss anything else!
