Happy Birthday to Me

Remember when I said I was thinking about moving to the beach??? Well, I didn't move, but I did go and spend a few days. We left Jeremiah in the slave pit and went with Dad, Taylor, and Caroline to celebrate my birthday.
I found some really good help with the girls :)
Went out for a nice dinner (thanks Dad!)
And even got to blow out a birthday candle.

Pace and Mary Aplin got to model the new swimsuits their Aunt Ashley bought them (thanks Sashey!)
And the cover-ups. I'm sorry, but these were THE CUTEST outfits I've ever seen.
I had some panic attacks as my two daredevils hurled themselves off whatever ledge they could find.
And I pinched that cute little hiney-butt.
Don't think priss-pot was willing to build sandcastles on her own.

And this one earned the nickname of "Napoleon" for her strong will and intensity (and fits!).

But, then, there is this smile...



We had a great time, and it was a beautiful birthday to remember. 27 and counting!
