From Beach Vacations Past…

The beach

I’m in the mood for the beach.  Good thing because hopefully it won’t be long before I will be slathering on the sunscreen and heading down the road to the enjoy the white, sandy beaches of the Florida coast.

I am taking a few moments out of my vacation planning today, a few days before I hit the beach, to look back on some of my seaside trips from years before – there have been quite a few of them.  Even though I don’t think I could ever consider myself a beach bum, (unless of course I lived in Hawaii) there have been plenty of beach bum moments over the last several years.  Some of the very best vacations that I have ever been on have involved the sand between my toes and two of my most favorite people – these guys:

and I think we are long over due for a new beach side family picture – only this time without the sunglasses.  🙂

Here’s to a great weekend!

*PS – I had every intention on doing my regularly scheduled Thursday Thrift post today, but ran into a bit of car trouble and had no time left for outfit photos.  I will be back to my normal Thursday Thrifting self as scheduled for the next time.  If there are any link ups for today though, please stop by here and feel free to leave a comment if you have something thrifted today on your blog.  I’d still love to check it out.  Thanks.
