Family Time at the Beach!

About 800 pictures later, we are home from a wonderful family vacation in Destin, Florida! It is a daunting task to try and narrow down all the pictures, and although this post alone has about 50, there are still more posts to come believe it or not!! :)

We had an absolutely wonderful time!! Sweet John David could only be there for 2 full days, and then had to fly back early so he could finish up this Acumen project. (boo!) He was greatly missed the rest of the time, but Lyla and I stayed throughout the week and soaked up special time with our Dallas family!! Here are LOTS of glimpses into our time with family...

(lots of "ring around the rosie" with the cousins!)

Our little Prankster Uncle Johnny had way too much fun scaring people with this dead crab he found.

My Mama with all 5 grandkids

Olivia was teaching us her songs from preschool graduation. Lyla copied EVERY move!! (and so did Whitney and Mom. Hilarious.)

these 2 were such great playmates and had a BLAST playing in the ocean all week!

more ring around the rosie

Sweet Grandmama is such a little poet!! She wrote the best poems all week for ALL of our celebrations...Mom and Dad's anniversary, Whitney and Stephen's Anniversary, and Whitney and Julia's birthdays! It was a GREAT week to be there to celebrate all these fun events and Grandmama's poems made them extra special! :)

Of course, out of every swimsuit and every skirt in the world, Whitney and I picked out the exact same ones. We would. We always wished that we were twins. :)

Ok, more pics to come! :)
