Beach Living.....

I'm sitting here eating Haagen -Dazs coffee flavor frozen yogurt...yum! It's low fat...um..hmm sure it is.
At least I got my workout by kayaking today! This picture was taken yesterday after the girls woke up from their naps. We went out for a stroll....
Today all 7 of us went out in 2 of the Kayaks. We cruised around the bay then Mommy's team raced Daddy's team......Daddy's team won. {cheaters!}
Rematch tomorrow! It's on!
.........but my arms are so sore!


This little guy found some black paint tar to paint himself with. We spent some time getting it off the little warrior..
Farrah getting ready to go shopping with her new garage sale find Roxy purse.....

Austin found a starfish up on the sand...poke it, is it dead?



it's alive! Put it back in the water....but please...no, you can't keep it as a pet!




playing lots of Frisbee......



Who wants to weenie roast I mean hot dog roast? I made the mistake of saying weenie and Landen couldn't help but laugh(I should of known) and then he asked with a serious face, "Mommy are they weal "real" wieners?" LOL poor guy!

we roasted...ahem, hot dogs, corn on the cob and of course marsh mellows!
looking cute in time out!
getting ready for a boat ride...gotta make sure you have your sunglasses and purse...never know what you will need to buy at sea!
our friends came down with their 2 kids and surprised us. They stayed two nights and we had so much fun bike riding, kayaking, golf cart riding, swimming, boat riding, eating, and lots of laughing!
The husbands worked and my friend and I loaded the kids up in the bike trailers and took the kids on a long bike ride. It was so nice to be able to actually talk and catch up! We have been friends for over 9 years but it's been over a year since I've seen her. She's the kind of friend that will wipe my kids boogers. The kind of friend that I could just grab a diaper out of her diaper bag without asking because I forgot to bring diapers with me to the beach. The kind of friend that I haven't called in 6 months but we caught up right where we left off...The kind of friend you can pray with.
We both were able to share about whats going on in our lives.
Then Landen and her son had to go potty while on the bike ride...we both looked at each other and at the same time both said, "just go find a bush"
Gosh, I love true friends, true redneck friends!Ha!
Friends that can show up to your RV "home"and you can serve them hot dogs for dinner and just have a good time!
no impressing required!
.......are you kidding me??? Did I just really finish all that coffee frozen yogurt. ugh!

Looks like so much fun! (minus the tar all over your son. How did you get it off?!)

I laughed when I saw the hot dogs that you were roasting. It reminded me of the scene from Dumb & Dumber when Harry holds up that huge hot dog and asks "Footlong! Who got the footlong?!" : )
