We had a wonderful time at the beach with our family!
Lily is so lucky to have her uncle and my daughter to do all these fun things with her. They treat her as if she were their own child. They had to leave on Tuesday and Lily got to stay the entire week with us. She never once got homesick! We kept her busy and had lots of activities. I think her favorite was swimming in the pool when it was dark out, and building a sand castle on the beach at 9:30 at night!
Here she is jumping the waves with my husband, the look on her face is pure joy! LOVE this picture! He bounced around in the ocean with her quite a bit, but me...I just enjoy sitting in a chair in the surf watching....
Just when I thought we were going to get down to business and get some great pictures.......look what happened....
Another HIGHLIGHT of the vacation was when I had a project to work on while I was there....
My son was on his way to the beach with his longtime girlfriend. They arrived around 11:30 pm and went for a quick walk down to the ocean. When they turned to come back to our condo this was waiting in the sand
I had mere seconds to execute this plan once they walked down the beach. I was almost done placing it when he texted me and said "we're coming back!" I had to run like the wind to get out of site and tripped and flailed my arms all over the place...but I did it!
So now I'm going to be a mother in law again! This really made our vacation even more memorable this year!
Another fun thing I got to do again this year on vacation was visit the annual flea market held by St. Annes Church in Bethany Beach. They have it the same weekend every year and I was lucky to hit it again this year. I got lots of fun things that I will share with you after I get pictures. I hope to plan my vacation again next year at the same time, but be better prepared, I barely got the suitcases in the car for the ride home after my purchases!
We actually came back a day early. All the "big kids" had left and I was missing my dogs! We had a wonderful time and I already can't wait until next year!
