Well, I found out about this fair a little too late, but I'll share a bit about the loveliness of our trip to the seashore this weekend. Texas has been plagued with rain like no summer I can ever remember. Rarely a day goes by when not one shower falls some time during the day. It was no different on our first few days to the beach! But thankfully the rain had cleared we arrived to meet some family there on Thursday morning. Friday morning was another rainy day, but we did fit in a dip in the pool that afternoon. Saturday was spent back in town to stay at Aunt Jill's house for a little break. And Sunday back at the beach was the most gorgeous day, filled with sunshine and family, many hours at the pool, some nice sunburns, and a beautiful LifeTeen mass back home last night.
Something about the seashore always brings a smile to my face, and a peace in my heart. It's our most beloved of vacation spots, especially for young children who can be entertained for hours upon hours with sand and water! Add a nearby swimming pool for cooling off...and it's a true winner! Wish we were back there now...

My sweet sea princess!
Out to eat
Now that's a big chair!
Like a kid in a candy store!

And the nice view from the hotel room, lovely!
A HUGE THANK YOU goes out to Aunt Jill who shared her vacation with us! She welcomed various members of the huge B family clan to her hotel throughout the week, sharing her room, pool, food, beach, and even letting us spend two nights at her house with "Cat"! I think you deserve another Best Aunt award, Jill!
