AM Beach Trip!

Sorry peeps. I have been shopping and had no access to loading a new blog. BUT, true to form, my readers have come through, and we find ourselves at 10 comments (14 actually!!) again. So, here we go again!

Friday's beach trip:
Who's getting the bloody marys ready for the beach?! She is my favorite sister ever!! Then, wanna know why we take babysitters with us on vacation? well the simple answer is that we are lazy. You know, that is what a vacation is supposed to be about.

And so for us. That is what it IS about! Staci realized there was such a thing as Facebook yesterday, so we spent half the day helping her load up and learn how to use it.

Wanna be her friend? Send her a friend request! Staci Raborn. She'll be pumped. And like me, tell her you're a blog reader. Better yet, tell her you know her sister, Mo. No, wait. Tell her you know her COOL sister, Mo, and she sent you. She'll come to appreciate me yet!

This baby is a water baby if I have ever met one! She tucks that head in the water and gets after it! I have a video of it. If you comment 10 times today, I'll load up the video to show you. Super sweet!

I could eat those pigtails up. I remember way back when when Ellie would let me put her hair up like that! She wouldn't hear of it now! She only wants a "messy bun". SHe can even put it up herself.

I think we may get big fat babysitters next time though! These two just make us look bad!



But I gotta say... they sho do take good care of our babies. And they are drama free! I mean, KK reads when the girls don't need her. READS! She takes them in individually when they are sleepy. She goes in the water when they want in and comes out when they want to dig in the sand! But she is starting her third year in college, majoring in Engineering. SO, I suppose we won't have her as a sitter for much longer. Uncool! That whole "amition" thing really gets on my nerves.


In fact, she has to go back to school early next week, and Mary Allison will be staying to get her license on Tuesday. She's riding down with Todd the Bod to take her post as beach sitter!!

Ellie prefers the pool. Gabbi prefers the beach. I like the beach. Todd likes the condo! Mary Allison better get ready to hustle back and forth. Cause as these girls have gotten a little older, they have also gotten a little more determined. a little more headstong. a little more "specific" let's say with where they want to go, and when!

It's like a delicate dance! Keeping them all happy.

But time with my babies at the beach. It's all worth it! I hope they have a recollection of this time in their lives someday. I don't really know at what age they will actually be able to remember things. But, I know one thing... I'll remember!!


10 comments and I'll post again!!

I have 3 older sisters when we go to the beach. So I guess they could be my sitters. That is a plus of being the youngest of 7! But growing up I sure had a lot of people telling me what to do! I love seeing another little girl who is crazy about the beach..sand and all!

Can you believe I am posting for the 3rd time today! Lovin the beach posts! I had saw the other day that Staci was now on facebook but didn't add her as a friend. I thought she might think I was some crazy stalker!! But since you said to add her, I for sure will! Hope to read more tomorrow, night everyone!

Did someone say bloody Marys? Can I can come hang out with you guys?!

Ellie is a trooper for hanging at the beach - of course she's probably happy that she's hangin' with her fav cousin, Madi (or Maddi? Maddie? oops I can't remember how to spell it correctly-UGH) Looks like a good time is being "had" by all! And yes, how nice you have "older" sitters still willing to go along, that makes for a nice vacation for the Momma's, too!

Ok, I see 10 now......

Gabby is so darn precious. Her pig tails are adorable.
The idea of taking babysitters on a vacation is da bomb! It actually lets you have a vacation! I hope your fun continues! Waiting for more pics!

I wish one of the families I babysat for in my teen years would've been beach-goin' families. I would've went along in a heartbeat!
Almost caught up on your blog-a-palooza....
