Our final vacation for the summer was a trip to Gulf Shores with my family. We spent a week at the beach at a house named "Kokomo" with Marge and Big D, Laura Anne and Chris, and Rae and Robert. It was the perfect way to end our summer.

We ate lots of good food, spent lots of time in the sun, and enjoyed spending lots of time together.

Chance is a beach bum like his mama and enjoyed every waking moment playing in the sand or in the ocean.

We had a shrimp boil, went out to eat, celebrated Laura Anne's birthday, ate meals on the beach, hunted crabs, watched movies, played games, finished puzzles, and truly enjoyed every minute of our time at the beach.

Thanks Marge and Big D for a wonderful week at the beach!!

Summer Fun - 2

Our summer fun continued with a visit from Pops and CC. They came for a long weekend to celebrate John's birthday and watch some World Cup soccer. Pops even surprised us all with some t-shirts and flags to watch the game.

Just a few days later John and Chance surprised me with a cookie cake for my birthday. We then went to the Astros game that night. John and I both had great birthdays!

We had lots of fun at the pool, playing outside, and soaking up the summer sun.

In the middle of July, Chance went to his first summer camp. He went to Sunny Days camp at the church where he will be going to preschool in the fall. It was from Monday through Friday from 9-1. I was very anxious about him going. The first day I dropped him off he was a little hesitant when I walked him in, but ran in and played and didn't shed a tear! He had several neighborhood friends in his class which really helped. He had a great week and so did I! Our beach trip was the following week so I was able to run errands, pack, etc. while he was gone.

Chance did great and had so much fun!
