Beach Bums

I really think I am a quaint girl that loves quaint beach towns and quaint beach food and quaint beach shops and quaint evening strolls with snow cones. Yes, I definitely think I could survive the life as a quaint beach girl on the highway of 30-A in Florida.

We just got back from a week at Seacrest Beach, FL. It was absolutely wonderful. Sunni, Xavier, Ava, Sarah Beth, Jason, Tim & I drove down there and had a quaint little old time. We spent most of our time lounging around on the beach, eating delicious food (I think the final count was 11 blocks of cream cheese used for various dips, etc), laughing at anything & everything, reading fabulous books (Sunni was not lying when she recommended Same Kind of Different As Me), singing songs from Hairspray, Psalty the Praise Book and The Little Mermaid with Ava, shopping for cute anything and walking around the most adorable beach town squares.

I already made Tim promise that we could make Seacrest Beach a tradition in our family. Of course, he agreed! Here are some trip highlights from the beginning to the end...

Tim had to leave in the middle of the week to go back to work...so this was my tribute to him!

Time to say our Goodbyes to Seacrest Beach

Next year our entire family is going & I can't wait until I get to be a quaint beach girl again!

Glad you had a great time - and good to see you're blogging again. :) We went to Destin last month and also had a great time. It's nice to relax, read, and rejuvenate, huh?

I missed reading your blog this last month! And I really, really missed you at the AHS reunion! But I have to say I'd probably choose the beach over awkward high school memories any day! What a fun trip!
