More Vacation remembrances

Today is another day that I wish I were still in paradise. Since we have returned home, Mister has peed in our laundry at least once, and twice in Bella's drawer under her crib. Once of the cats has pooped in her room behind her beautiful ultra suede green rocker. I don't know who, but I have my suspicions. Apparently Mister is trying to get back at us for leaving him for so long without our affections. I am not enjoying being a pet owner today.
Also, my jeans are too tight- the only bad reminder of my otherwise joyful vacation. I had much too much riotous eating that set my weight-loss goals back a few steps. Time to get back on the wagon. I hate the wagon. Actually, I don't really hate the wagon... I hate getting back on it. I love it when I'm on. That's the key- don't fall off! Okay, enough with the AA analogies.

Warning: If you do not want to see more pictures of my perfect vacation, move onto another blog.
Because I do not have a SmugMug account, I can only post my favorites to my blog to share with you all. Bear with me- This week is the Charleston Remembrance Week. I will be posting pictures all week long.
Also, for all you fellow bloggers out there, I feel there is too mcuh for me to try and 'catch up' on, so I will just start commenting on currents posts. Thank you for your understanding and support.


Here is Eva giving Bella a nice 'pat, pat' on the beach in their matching suits.
Luckily, we didn't have any of the episodes that plagued the end of our trip to Philly with the babies. Remember when they kept setting each other off? Eva would 'talk' to Bella, thereby scaring her, so Bella would start crying, then sending Eva into tears. It was a strange and vicious cycle. Not so this time, luckily for all.

Bella enjoying splashing at the beach.

I'm sorry for all the rest of you out there, but I have the cutest grandparents in the world. Period.

Bella trying out walking on the beach, if not a little precariously. I LOVE the reflection!

  • eating too much wonderful food
  • playing Scrabble, cards, and board games
  • lounging
  • beach combing
  • swimming
  • shopping
  • loving

Your trip sounds wonderful. I am glad that babies were good with each other. I am so jealous that you were at a beach and on vacation. It does get me excited though for my trip to Florida in December :)
I am glad your home, I've missed you tons.

I think your grandparents are so stinkin' cute! And the matching suits - great idea! Glad they behaved better this time around as well. I love to hear how laid back your trip was and I am sad for you that it was your last year there. :(

I love remembering what we were doing this time last week. And I hate it... love the photos. Please share the one of Grandma & Grandpa kissing! They are the cutest grandparents in the world.

Hey I have a blog now! You and Michelle have me convinced so I sure hope this works however I'm a little lost on how to better personalize my blog. Any advice would be appreciated!

I love looking at the pictures from the trip, and think the babies look so cute toddling on the beach and playing in their matching swimsuits.

I'm disturbed by the cats' paybacks, grim indeed.

dpw said...

AUGH! Revenge of the Cats sounds frightening indeed. Yet another reason to cross them off my list of possible pets.

I was totally confused on how you did the double kid bathing suit picture. They look almost identical.

I hate cat payback. Mine usually involved hairball puke everywhere.

pam said...

I love the pictures and yes, you do have the cutest grandparents.

jenn said...

welcome home Jessie! I just wanted to let you know that I passed your name along to someone who is looking for a part time, possibly moving to full time, scrapbooker. I don't know all the details but I had just read your post about other options than walmart and they asked me if I knew any talented scrapbookers who might be looking for work- that sounded like you!! sorry I don't have more information than that.
good luck!!
(and your grandparents are SO cute!!)

I think we should make t-shirts to commemorate our cutest grandparents in the world.
