Beach Blogging

This is our last night at the beach until next summer! We had a wonderful week full of playing on the beach, swimming in the pool, soaking up the rays and eating tons of delicious and delightful food. Here are some of the facts from our 2008 Beach Vacation:
  1. We went through at least 3 bottles of 50 sunscreen.
  2. The longest we had to wait to be seated for dinner was less than 30 minutes.
  3. The earliest we came up from the beach was 6:00 pm and the latest was after 7:00 pm.
  4. Banks' favorite meal was the Chicken Fingers and Twice Baked Potatoes at Louisiana Lagniappe. Mary Reese's favorite meal was at Cosmos because they had live music.
  5. Banks played a countless number of baseball games on the beach with people we had never met.
  6. Mary Reese wore every pair of shoes she brought (see the Beach Bound post for a picture) and bought yet another pair of flip flops.
  7. Banks got burried in sand by a boy with a mowhawk.
  8. Mary Reese had a "morning swimsuit" and an "afternoon swimsuit".
  9. We caught 10 jellyfish one afternoon before we got bored with the task.
  10. Banks took his first trip to the "Florda-Bama".
  11. I took 189 pictures during the week (I will post a slide show of my favs when we get back).
  12. We saw the most impressive fireworks show Saturday night after the Dental Meeting Party.
  13. I read an entire book and started another one!
  14. Banks and Mary Reese ate a rainbow snowcone everyday!
  15. Debbie only set the alarm off once at our house while we were gone!

We are pulling out in the morning and heading back north! Hopefully it will be an uneventful drive home!

I am ready for the update of the whole trip! Also, can you send me some pics? The few of me (some with David and one with Mar) and I also want a few of Banks, Mar, and them together!
