Tropical Storm Debbie and annual beach pics

Tropical Storm Debbie kind of put a kink in our vacation, until we made the 
best of her and walked down to the beach.

this was one of those moments where I thought it was so funny at the time...
you know mock swimming by the no swimming sign... yeah its not all that funny

Sierra trying to not blow away

even Rob came down to play... okay he came down looking for his
immature wife who ran off to play on the beach in a Tropical Storm :)

Sad reality moment when Sierra found the first of many turtle eggs
that fell victim to Tropical Storm Debbie
Maggie was not too happy that her beach days were ruined

but the storm passed and we did our annual Wilson and Boone beach pictures. Here is my crew.

myself, my dad and my sister Sam

Wilson's and Boone's

When in Clearwater... Go see Winter!

Kids feeling Winter's Gel, the product that has changes prosthetics forever. 

Then off to the Aquarium 
the kids having a penguin encounter

I like to call this one Mr Parker's penguins

Florida in the summertime

 So excited to see my best friend Christi, you'd think we'd run out of (slightly inappropriate but hysterically amusing) things to say to each other at some point but we just don't. This pic was taken after Sierra's (slightly overwhelming) tour of UCF. 
Carrie, Sierra and Chritsti

it was like a DS convention

Brayden loving life

Bray again, he had such a blast

Miss Lilly going for a walk on the beach

vanity moment, I actually looked okay in a bathing suit... you know that was making the blog!

Sierra and I on the beach

some bloggers love giant metal chickens, I am more of a plastic alligator... we all have our things :)

And then there was that one day when we let the kids play with cannons and they ended up in jail... wow I hope we never have to say that again ;)

Avery, Brayden, Harrison, Parker and Lilly

"Look sad or mad" umm Lilly is apparently going to be quite the actress, she looks like she is about to cry. 

First stop, doodle town

So I have this great friend Tiffaney, we aren't supposed to be friends... see we met on the internet... because we both bought dogs from the same breeder... which according to my outside sources means either one of us could have been a crazed lunatic. Its a very good thing that was not the case. We love Tiffaney and her husband Steve and the doodles ahh the doodles. 
We love that we get to see them once a year during our summer migration home to my family in Florida.
Casa Del Cassie Bear... okay so its actually Steve and Tiffaney's house

Cassie Bear, Tiffaney, Macie Marie, Maggie and ME...

Rob and I hiding out in the wine room
