BEACH BABIES

Here's the 2009 version of Granddaddy & Gigi with their grandbabies. It is fun to look at how they've changed. It's not so much fun to see how I have aged but pictures don't lie! We had an absolutely wonderful time. The weather was beautiful six out of seven days...can't complain. The children had a great time. Granddaddy cooked breakfast every morning until we convinced him later in the week that cereal, sweet rolls and Pop Tarts would be just fine. I think Zack would have rather had the biscuits and gravy all week!
This is our daughter, Amy, and her family. Keith (the oldest) would have spent ALL day in the ocean with his net catching the little fish & crabs. Zack (middle) became a pro at riding his surf board, and Griffin was a master sand castle builder....but preferred the pool (takes after his mom).


Our son, Chris, and his family. Breanna (oldest) is so precious.....loved catching fish with Keith. She amazed everyone by picking them up with her fingers and bringing them to the pail of water. Maddie (middle) is her daddy made over!! She loved the beach and the pool. It didn't matter where we were....she was having a good time. Emma was happy wherever she was and not afraid of the water. She loved playing in the sand but when she was ready to leave the beach she would just walk toward the condo and we knew she was ready to go. She has grown so much....not a baby any more.

These are the six reasons that I smiled so much this week. They are truly GRAND. The week passed entirely too fast.
