My Vacation Pictorial


Headed to Jason's 20th Class Reunion in Tallahassee. I'm not pregnant. I swear the dress looks better in person.
Luke had some AWESOME hair at the beach.
Emma has decided to become a deep-sea diver.
Here are some tourists standing next a manta ray.
We played mini-golf twice.
I was the only one to get a hole-in-one the first game. Not that I'm rubbing it in, Jason.
Emma got a new crop of freckles.
She armwrestled a creepy guy at an arcade.
We took the rare opportunity to get a picture of all of us together.
We took in a dolphin show at Gulf World...
...which Luke really loved!
I danced with a parrot. (Doesn't everyone do that on vacation?)
A Sea Lion yelled at us.
We took a cruise out to Shell Island. The undisturbed beaches are gorgeous.
Luke crashed while we waited for a table at Cap'n Anderson's.
We made silly faces while we waited to get a table at Boar's Head restaurant. (I am channeling my inner Gene Simmons.)
We waited a LONG time to get a table.
At the Treasure Ship, Emma got a tattoo of a dolphin.
Captain Squinty Eyes kept us entertained. We ate WELL on vacation.

We had a wonderful time together. We were at the beach for 7 days, which was the longest we'd been away from home. By the last day, I think we were all a little ready to come home. If only I could get back in the summertime routine now! Beach mentality does not work well in the "real world" unless you are Jimmy Buffett!

Looks like you had an AWESOME time! I am very, very jealous. I would love to have another beach-y vacation this year but I used mine up in January.

Fun!! That's a great picture of all four of you together!!

We haven't ever been on vacation that long at once - it seems so relaxing!! But then I remember how antsy we get to get back to real life.

I know, we're weird.

Hey Lianne -- just popped over from Alabama Bloggers and love your pictures. Your vacation looks like a blast. Maybe we'll meet at a blogger thing.
