Do NOT Watch This

...unless you're ready to do something about it.

On another somber note, Joylyn, one of my best friends in the world, lost her daddy last night. I'll be en route to Alabama tomorrow afternoon to be with her and her family. Please keep Joylyn and her family in your prayers in the next couple of days.

I guess it's just one of those days, huh!

Beach 09

Hey y'all! Whew...I'm telling you. It is a blessing to be able to get away with family and enjoy some time off, but I think the getting ready to go and the coming home and getting settled back into real life is just craziness! We went to the beach last week and took our first real official family vacation with Anna Kate! I've grown up going to Panama City Beach EVERY year, but decided to try something new this year. We went to Seagrove Beach, FL, which is between Destin and Panama City on Hwy 30A. Y'all it was amazing. There are absolutely no highrises, and there are tons of quaint shopping areas and local restaurants. It's almost like going back in time. We really had a great time. Anna Kate, it turns out, is a little beach baby. In fact, she loved the ocean more than Mama! I love to go to the beach and sit in a chair and listen to the radio and read, but as for the ocean, I only go in when it's perfect, which you'll see from the pics, it was. Anna Kate splashed and laughed (even when she got splashed in the face!) and played in the sand. She had a ball. We are definitely looking forward to next year and taking even more family with us!
