Beach and Birthdays!

It seems as though every year we are on vacation for Marc's birthday.

This year was no exception.

We arrived to our condo to find this flag hanging from the balcony!

Marc felt right at home..ha!

We were on the 9th floor and found this welcome sign..

Maddy cooking her Daddy's birthday dinner.

With a little help from her Uncle Donnie of course.


This was our view from the living room balcony.

We made sure to bring a little home grown goodness along.

Nothing like garden tomatoes with that view!

This picture just cracks me up!

Maddy here lately has had plenty to talk about.

She has a story for everything.. have to hear this one..ha!

It didn't take long for the beach to fill up.

Can you guess what tent Marc wanted to visit?

Poor thing...he was on our trip full of LSU fans.

Please excuse the vacation post to come.
I don't scrapbook any longer and this will be our sweet reminder.

And the winner of the book giveaway is Debilou-Mississippi Mamma!
Please email me you info and I will have it right out to ya!

Hope ya'll are having a great summer too!

  3. Y'all stayed a really nice place. What a great view. Those tomatoes look yummy. We planted some this year, but haven't gotten any yet. First time having a garden in LA. guess we started too late. Ah well, there is always next year.
