Beach Baby

Hellooooo!  Do I sound chipper or what?!  It may be because I’ve ditched winter and headed to the beach with my family.  It’s my grandfather’s 90th birthday and there are about 18 of us cousins, aunts, kiddos etc. piled into a great beach house in Florida’s Anna Maria island.  I’ve been taking a lot of pictures with my Hipstamatic app, I’m kinda obsessed with it, and here are a few highlights from our first few days.

This is Jake’s first time at the beach and his reaction to the hilarity that ensues each night at the house is somewhat in awe…let’s just say I’ve been crying with laughter each night!

The weather has been a but windy, but warm and gorgeous. We almost blew away at the pier yesterday.  Here is my cousin and her children trying their best to pose in the wind.

And of course I had to pose with Jake at the beach. He loved the white sand and slept peacefully (like a baby, har har) under his umbrella.

And after hours it’s all about the Ping Pong…Tournament that is.  And yeah, we do it up with a bracket and everything.  Sadly, me and my partner “Pedro” lost to an 8 year old and 62 year old.  Clearly we are ping pong rock stars!

More pictures and memories to come.  Aren’t family vacations the best?!  And I get a visit from Kristin and the Dude later this week. Woo hoo!

    Have a wonderful time! I don’t know what’s with the wind lately… it seems to be windy everywhere in the U.S. these days. At least it’s warm! Supposed to be almost 60 today and I’m looking forward to it.
