Still catching up...

I am still trying to catch this blog up (lol) 
This post is about week 2 of our R&R.  Once we knew when J would get R&R, we decided to go to the beach.  The beach is one of our favorite places to go and we knew the kids would love it too!  We were fortunate to be able to stay a week.  The weather was perfect and the food was out of this world wonderful. (yea, I blew the diet and gained a few pounds but it was so very worth it)
So below are the pictures from our week...it is a lot of pictures ;)
On our way to eat some yummy seafood:


J and Jackk:


J and Madeline being silly:


J and his parents.  His parents were at the beach the same week we were there.  They stayed just up the road from us so we got to see them while we were there. 


No vacation to the beach is complete without getting buried in the sand:
Madeline with a shovel full of sand...to the face...ha

Swimming in the ocean:

Nothing better than a late afternoon nap on the beach under the umbrella:

While Jack napped, Madeline boogie boarded:


and built sand castles:

Ready to enjoy another great day at the beach:


3 of my most favorite people:


On our last day the gulf was filled with jelly fish!  All 4 of us got stung.  So the kids took it upon themselves to catch all the jelly fish.  They caught a lot:



Are they not the cutest???


Me and my little crazy:


We took the kids to play Putt-Putt ( or carpet golf according to Jason)  and to ride go-carts.  They had a blast even though it was so blaming hot out there.

Madeline playing the game her way:


Jason lining up to make the putt:

I scored the first and only hole in one!  Yea me!!


Madeline was finally tall enough to drive the kiddie carts by herself:


Jack had so much fun!:




So that was our vacation.  It was a great and relaxing time.  Jason and I were even able to have a date night one night while we were there.  It was so nice.  It had been nearly a year since I had a date. 

I will be back soon to update about the end of R&R and some other things that have been going on :)
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
