Life's A Beach

We are back from our wonderful vacation on Siesta Key. I just love that place and have looked forward to the day I could have my baby girl there...... I have to admit though..... I'm one exhausted mommy! She was on the go from the minute her feet hit the sand. We brought a chair for her and I did get a few pics, but don't let that fool you. She sat in it for all of 30 seconds.

I took more pictures than I know what to do with and they are all so cute. So, get ready for the mother of all posts with mucho pics.
































































Holy Cow... That was more pics than I even thought. Are you still here????? Wow, I'm impressed.

Sunset on the beach pictures are my favorite EVER. Besides the lovely Ms. G, that is!

That picture of Miss G and Ferdy looking at the sunset is PRICELESS!! I love it!!! It looks like you guys had a great time. But, I agree with you, I've decided that now that I'm a mommy there is no such thing as a vacationi anymore!! (at least not how I remember them!!)

Just can't beat the Gulf of Mexico, can you? It's only 9 miles from my house, but looking at those photos, I think I don't see it nearly often enough!
