We're back!!! ...and -------- is the winner!!

So we are sadly home (yes I must say sadly since I'm already back at work) but thankfully we had a wonderful and safe trip! Charli Beth had the time of her life learning to swim and playing with the entire family on the beach for the week! I have tons of pictures to share throughout the week with you all. We could not have asked for better weather while we where in the Sunshine state, except for the days we decided to do family pictures! We had to cancel on Wednesday due to an afternoon storm that was suppose to come in (never did though) and rescheduled for Friday. While getting ready we noticed to the left of our condo were the most beautiful clouds and to the right was probably some of the nastiest I have ever seen. Although, we did get our pictures in and from what I have seen they are truly amazing. I cannot wait to share the pictures that were taken by Lesley Foley. If you are ever in her area, I do have to recommend her 100%.

Like I state above Miss Charli did learn to swim (with floaties) this week. But that is a huge accomplishment for my little "squirt!" She liked playing in the sand every now and then but we couldn't seem to keep her away from the pool. I guess that just means that Pa will have to get us a pool for next summer?! I personally think that is a fabulous idea.

On Tuesday, my sister, Dad and I went deep sea fishing for the first time together. I can't say that I did absolutely horrible for my first time, but I didn't catch the shark I was aiming for ;o) I'll show pictures once I get them from my sister. Have I ever mentioned that I also need to invest in an underwater camera? Those are wonderful inventions. Thank you to who ever made those, because they are great for hilarious photos (I'll share those later too)

Here is some from Char's first day on the beach;
BTW, we drove everyone in our condo crazzzyyy with our bubbles this week. But I had a blast making tons fly away with her at a time.

On to the winner =) ....

Now I will let you all in on my favorite quotes I have a lot of them so be aware!!

* all of our young lives we search for someone to love,
someone that makes us complete. we choose our
partners and change partners. we dance to a song
of heartbreak and hope. all the while wondering if
somewhere, somehow, there's someone perfect who
might be searching for us.--The Wonder Years

* "Being single used to mean that nobody wanted you. Now it means you're pretty, sexy, & you're taking your time deciding how you want your life to be & who you want to spend it with"

*I am a daughter, a sister, a grand-daughter, a niece, a cousin, a friend , a student, a young girl and a grown woman .I am confident and scared, terrified and excited. I am loving and caring, thoughtful and careless. I am broken and whole . I am hardworking and determined, but a little scared on the inside. I wish on stars and dream my dreams. I pray to God and cry my tears. I smile on the outside, while I'm dying on the inside. I listen to others who wont listen to me. I walk on eggshells, and I walk on fire. I believe in passion and true love I love you and I push you away I am everything and nothing all at once And all I want is for you to love me ♥

*while we try to teach our children about life; they teach us what life is all about

*Happiness keeps You Sweet,
Trials keep You Strong,
Sorrows keep You Human,
Failures keep You Humble,
Success keeps You Glowing,
But Only God keeps You Going!

*So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Isaiah 41:10

Good job Charlie Beth, Learning to swim is so exciting! I'm glad you guys had a great time with your family and all your bubbles :).
The quotes are great by the way.
Oh and no problem with you telling me how similar Charlie beths situation was to our Coopers. It makes me feel good to know someone who has been through some of these same worries and situations that we are going through.

I hope you enjoy getting back to work, I know what you mean though. Can't we just have longer vacations!!!!

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
