So far, we’ve had a big family party, a day of work, a day of rest and today, another day of travel.  We packed up the car this morning and drove over to the gulf coast.  And even though I managed to get really sick last night and today, I couldn’t be happier to be here.  My mom rented a beautiful condo for us right on the water.

The lights on the sand are people crab hunting.  When you look down the shoreline at night, the lights freckle the way as far as you can see.  Tomorrow will be filled with sun and sand and kiddos on the beach.  Can’t wait.  We also get to go visit my mom’s new, big and beautiful beach house!!
