Happy Days

We headed out bright and early yesterday so we could stop at Krispy Kreme in Bham for donuts before stopping to see the grands on our way to the beach. Lots of people like Krispy Kreme's at nine am on Saturday. There was quite a long line but then the HOT sign was on so that reaches out to Southerners who know a Hot Krispy Kreme Donut is a little piece of heaven.  The grands were happy to see us and the donuts. Of course, Nana had brought a few treats along for them as well.  Baylor had such a good time that he pooped out before we continued on our way to the beach.

Thanks to all of you who are praying for our Baylor Boy....he is doing very well in therapy and we are hoping for much progress.

Grandpa with Margaret and Elliott. Margaret told us all about her trip to the ER last week. Thanks for praying for her and her siblings. All are on the mend.

Our dramatic Margaret. I wanted to get a photo of Margaret and Katy but only Katy put on a pretty smile.

And I have to share these cute long sleeved tees that my niece, Jessica, made for Baylor and Margaret.

Jess did a great job on these autumnal shirts.

And finally my view this morning.... We splurged for nice beach chairs and our attendant comes by and moves the umbrella around as the sun moves! I feel so decadent. We usually tote out own chairs and umbrellas but decided to take advantage of beach service this year. And a good thing we did. The STICKS in the picture are actually beach umbrellas that the owners folded up as the wind was really ripping today. We are back at the condo for lunch and Marvin is checking out the Sunday football game....soon we will be back on the beach and then out for dinner. These are happy days.

I do remember enjoying the beach and then being starved for dinner. So glad you are having a nice time.
So good to see Baylor and to learn that he is doing well in therapy.
Nice to see Margaret, Elliott, Katy and your husband too.
Those autumn sweat shirts are cute as can be. I love anything to do with fall.

It looks amazing on the beach! I'm so glad you had a good trip and some beach time today! HAVE FUN! Have you seen any seashells to pick up? Hugs!

Diane, unfortunately most of the shells here are broken by the time they make it to the shore. I have found a few little ones but nothing terrific. Today the water seems much calmer. Hope it stays that way!

I am so glad to see that you had a good beach time here at the end of summer. And, isn't it wonderful to splurge a little sometimes. Take care!

Amy, we are wringing out the last drop of summer !! Off to the outlet mall this afternoon for hubs to get some new work clothes. I may sneak in a few purchases as well!
