Catch up time

I've been such a bad blogger lately. We've been so busy, as has everyone else I'm sure, but, I promise I'll try and be better from now on. My next few blogs will probably pertain to summer fun!
But for now................
We just got back from another amazing week at Gulf Shores!!! Oh, how we would LUV to live there.......maybe some day!
By the way, I've learned how to do mosaics so from now on I will probably be using alot of them in my posts. It's just sooooo much faster to download.
Anyhoo, I LUV this first shot. They were all taken from our 9th story balcony. The first picture is of the most amazing cloud I believe I've ever seen in my life. As you can see in the second picture a thunderstorm was moving in around 6 one evening and the sky was gorgeous. The third picture is simply a beautiful day which is what we had everyday even though the Weather Channel said there was at least a 50% chance of rain each day. The last picture is of a thundershower in the distance.

Our youngest daughter Casey and her husband Josh joined us for a few days and my sister, Susie and her hubby David met us for a couple of days.
There's nothing better than spending time with family.

We went to the infamous Flora-Bama one morning and drove out to Pirates Cove for lunch. Yes, that really is a picture of Josh swinging on a pole at Flora-Bama. That boy doesn't have a lick of sense (so he fits in our family real well).

The last evening we were at the beach, we drove out to the State Park and took pictures. I thought it was really neat that our clothes color coordinated with Casey and Josh's and we didn't even plan it!

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. Gosh, it sure has gone by fast!!

Are they not grand? grandchildren that is. Beautiful family you have! Our youngest is 3, and tears up my heart when he says 'gwama' from the other coast.

I've been following Susie, and so happy to find your lovely site also.
