Ahhhh . . .

We are home.  And much of my body is covered in a mysterious rash.  But I am refreshed, relaxed and recharged, so I am ignoring the itchy red splotches while I enjoy pouring through the photos from our time at the beach.

I hope you’ll indulge me as I spend the rest of this week recapping some highlights from our trip. Today, two quick photos that capture the happiness that is my children before we even reach the beach:

And this year our littlest man was inducted into the Slushee Club. Do you think he was happy about it?

Thank you Sonic for being conveniently located on the way to the beach instead of in my town, thus keeping you a special beach-trip event and for your Route 44 Diet Strawberry Limeade which may one day prove to be my downfall.

Up tomorrow:  Castle Idol 2011! The competition was fierce. 

PS. Mrs. Mitchell, Are you Kelli Dawn Waite from my BYU days?

So happy to hear that your vacation to the beach was perfect and that you are recharged (hope that rash goes away quickly).

Love all three pictures! Oh so much happiness captured!

I really like the "notes" (not better word comes to my mind) that you are adding lately to your pics.

Everyone looks happy and relaxed. That's what I like to see. Can't wait to see all your beachy pictures!

Oh man, now I'm craving that sonic ice! Glad you're feeling better. Nothing like the beach to cure what ails you-- mentally at least. :D

Looks like a wonderful time. My countdown to the beach has begun...12 more days. I love Ollie with the slushie.

It was just a beachy vacation. I wish I could drink those Sonic drinks but I can't. Owlet knows a good tasting drink that' for sure.

Sam! Yes! That is me! I'm so excited you remember. I know I should have posted a couple of years ago, but computers and I are not exactly friends. You inspire me every single day! You are simply amazing! You must keep blogging and sharing your life and your thoughts with all of us! Glad you had a great time at the beach!

There is a Sonic less than a mile from my house and it IS my downfall! Curse those amazing cherry limeade slushes!! Sounds like a wonderful trip!
