Winding down



The trip is winding down, but we are still having a TON of fun. We always do! We spent another day relaxing at the beach and I went into the pool to cool off, too. It is HOT here and sunny. A much welcome change after last year's Hurricane Ida.

THANKS to all who are helping at home with the kiddos and house while I am away!

Yesterday was shopping day. We didn't do too much damage. I got some Christmas gifts, too. It was a fun and exhausting day. FUN times here. Today it will be 91 here, so quite toasty. We are going to the beach for a few hours. I can't get too much sun on my face because I have church pics on Saturday afternoon.

Beach day


Today we went shellin' at Tiger Tail Beach and Heidi took all of these great pictures.Found some neat shells. Hung out at the pool for a while and then I made lunch for everyone. We cleaned up and went out to a few stores on the island and had dinner at Joey's Pizza. Didn't get much...just a sweatshirt and a magnet.

Marco 2010

Yep, it is THAT time of the year. The time of year where I hurry and scurry to get things done at home to head to the beach with my gal pals. We left our homes bright and early yesterday and by noon in Fort Meyers, we were on the road to paradise. After a quick run to a Stein Mart, though. Don't worry, honey, I only bought a jacket and it was sooo cheap. Seriously. Well, that and a gift for someone.

We enjoyed a walk to dinner and saw a wedding on the beach. Today we have been hanging out at the beach and then the pool when it was sprinkling and now around the condo and probably won't go anywhere.

What I love about Marco is all the shells everywhere on the beach. NOT like that in Gulf Shores. Shoes are a must on the beach because of all the shells. Teeny tiny lizards are everywhere. Cute, but a bit creepy. On they walk back from the pool Robin and I saw about 10!

Thanks to Pappy and Jo for opening up their home away from home to us. It really is a paradise here.

No day away

This was a new place to us! It was neat! The best part was thing huge mound of air covered by a tarp like thing. The kids all had fun. I think Logan enjoyed it the most!

Guiping Girls Reunion 2010

Our Travel Group from Lifelink Adoption had a reunion in Iowa in September. The girls have been home for 5 years now in America. It was a blast seeing how all the girls have grown since the last reunion 2 years ago. Most of the girls we had visited with over the last couple of years at one time or another, but some of the girls live too far away to see very often.

Visit from our friends


We had a visit from the Hamby's this summer. What fun!
