Bliss Part II


One thing about waiting several days after a trip to blog about it is you forget all the things you planned to blog about.  At least I do.  Thank goodness for pictures.  

One thing I remember is what Morgan did  the moment she saw me (remember, my mom and I came later, so it'd been a few days since she last saw me).  It wasn't "Mommy, Mommy!!" like I miss you...it was more like:

"Mommy, Mommy, let me show you!  Ta Da!"  Holding up her foot showing me her newly painted toenails, courtesy of her Auntie Ash.  Haha! 

Morgan with my in-laws.  Don't they look so cute in their pink? :)

With her daddy, her beach buddy for life.

I totally have a crush on this guy.  

Neither of us are very fond of this pic (DK didn't shave and I have this awful habit of standing like my back is broken during pics?), but I had to post at least one with the two of us.  This was the best one in the bunch. 

And then the ol' family photo.  Every beach trip I say that we're going to put on clothes and take a nice Christmas card-like pic on the beach.  Never happens.  I think I'll put this on the Christmas card, anyway.  No?  Oh.

Child abuse again. We did this same thing last year, except for back then, she was a year old (clueless and helpless -- even worse).  Please don't turn me in. 

Plus I think she likes it.


My Little Fish

Not sure what this was about.

There's a story that goes with the blue swim cap:  My in-laws were basically making fun of me by putting this on Morgan's head.  Years back, they must have asked me if I could swim.  And they SAY I said something like, "Yeah!  I was a blue cap!" (at Girl Scout camp, that meant you were an advanced swimmer).  So this was their little jokey-joke on me. =)


My father-in-law took his golf cart along this time, and that made traveling around the neighborhood and to the beach quick, breezy, and fun.  And anytime Morgan was pre-meltdown, all they had to do was ask if she wanted to go for a ride on the golf cart.  Sold.  You can see the top of her head in the middle on this pic. :)


Out there catching some waves with my honey.

A few years ago, there was some shark activity around the Gulf.  A few attacks and quite a few spottings.  And if I remember correctly, the sharks were unusually close to the beaches (obviously still a good way out, but still close enough to where a few people swam).  Anyway, that fact kept me out of the ocean for a long time!  I remember we went parasailing that same year, which requires you to go out on a boat and climb onto the boat from the water.  The fact that we had to be IN the water for a short period of time made me SO nervous.  I remember being PISSED because the parasailing people dipped us in the water from the air! Haha!  (Like a shark would see our butts coming down and come up and take chunk!) Anyway, this is probably my first time since then really getting out there.

Mama and me.

Mo with her Tee Tee Ash.

My Mom

My mom and mother-in-law (we have a similar picture from last year).


Another funny thing about this trip is the fact that Morgan heard the ice cream truck EVERY time he came through the neighborhood (even when she was in the house).


Before dinner our last night -- look at that awesome tan!

We had a GREAT time!  And I just learned more details about my family's beach trip next month, and it looks like it's a go! Woohoo!

Now time to pick up while Morgan is still napping.  We went to the dentist this morning, and it didn't go so well. :)  She did NOT like the way that cleaning machine looked.  At least she let the doc check out her teeth and we got a good report.  He still loves all that space in her teeth, which makes for easy cleaning...and a definite orthodontist bill for us in about 10 years.  DK and I both had braces, so I guess she had no chance.

Happy Thursday, y'all!
