My Summer Vacation



Just click the button above to be directed to all the fun!  Kristen has been planing and planing for this fun party for months!  She has door prizes and you will have fun just checking out all the vacation memories of all our blog friends.

I wanted to share a few of our summer travel memories with you today, I will start with Fort Lauderdale.

We woke up to this beautiful sunrise each and every morning!  It was around 85 degrees out side at 6am when we woke up.


Luke enjoyed covering Daisy in sand.


Reese wasn't sure about the sand.

Tate was sure, sure he didn't like it!


Bo was very happy to be on vacation!

We went to a Polynesian Dinner Theater, it is was not as fun as we had thought it would be, it was very loud and Luke got a really bad head ache.  And for a family of 5 it cost over $250, which made me about choke to death....



Here is a lovely picture of our children in the belly of a shark.  This is at Cabala's.  My sweet husband, bless his heart, thinks that we have to go to every major hunting store in the country.

HD made friends with the Pool Guy and he gave us fresh coconuts daily to drink.

My 3 guys looking for shells


I would love to tell you that I was fishing, but I was just posing for this picture with HD's new fishing pole.

Luke loved the fish that HD caught



This is the kids trying not to get dirty

Our last day in Ft Lauderdale 




Then after the gas prices never came down we decided to have a Staycation which means that we stayed home for vacation and we had our whole family come for the 4th of July.
