Do you remember last week when I told you we were celebrating my dad's 60th birthday in a big way?

We were living it up at the beach...Carolina Beach, North Carolina.
We played all day every day wearing SPF 100 on our faces and SPF 50 on our bods. We're a slightly pale bunch.

This is the first time the girls' toes hit the sand.
And they were in love.
Big time.
There are so few pictures of me at the beach...thankfully this one is far away. 
Distance is a great smoother of things that are not so flat.
We had sand everywhere.

We can't wait to go again.
To Carolina Beach...or any beach.
I think we'd do about anything to have a repeat of this trip.
Everything about it was awesome...except for maybe the day that Talia ran 
103 temp and tested positive for strep throat. 
That was the morning we were scheduled to leave for the beach.
 But Urgent Care and medication are a wonderful, wonderful things.
There will be more vacation stories next week.
Ones that involve donuts, surrey's with a fringe on top, and forests.
Happy Weekend, all!
