Thursdays Feelings and Family


IT'S THURSDAY
You will love this!!!!!


(The Last Day of Home Photo's)

We had a visitor on our deck outside the room.


Grandson looking for shells.


Throwing Shells


We had dinner our first night at Damon's over looking the beach.


Yes it was cold and yes the grandson is in it!


Digging.


Throwing - now if you know anything about SPD - you know this picture is worth a million bucks.


Mom and grandson in the ocean.


Another million dollar photo.


Chatty and grandson. I had a beach cover up on and I didn't want it wet so I tucked it in.



Okay when you dug a hole it immediately filled with water - not from a wave - it must have been below in the sand.


Silliness and happiness.


Another million dollar pic.


Him begging me to come in the pool and I did.


Still had my cover up tucked in - BUT I had to put this in - holding hands and talking to my sweet grandson.


Beautiful mom and grandson.


One of grandson's birthday dinners/


The Sugar Shack!


It took 11 years to find Scooby and the Scooby Mobile.


Safely resting in a hand...


Another birthday party at Margarettaville!


Riding a dinosaur!


I love Jimmy Buffet and his music and the mood.


The hippo had grandson in his mouth.


Daughter trying on the grandson's birthday gifts and I bought the Elmo for the other grandson.
She is going to kill me when she sees this - but I think she is a hoot! I like it when she's a hoot.

Look what else we found there!!!!!!


See yah!



THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:

Oh wow, looks like such a fun trip! Brrr - that water does look cold though!

Thanks for sharing all the pics :-)

Debbie said...

This time, I clicked the Celtic Thunder link to listen to as I read. I really love their voices.

And your pictures are just fantastic. I love all the grandson poses. You ought to do a mosaic just of him in his silly scenes.

Wanda's Wings said...

Kim said...

It looks like tons of fun, but that water looks COLD. Brrrr.

Shelly said...

Of all those great pics, my favorite is the one of you holding his hand in the surf. Priceless!

Knitty said...

I love the family pics! My only trip to Myrtle Beach was in even cooler temps than yours. I'd like to go back when it is warm enough to wade.

Your grandson has come a long way, hasn't he? Is your heart smiling?

Changes in the wind said...

Oh what fun......So many great memories be made here.

Walking on Sunshine... said...

I love the pictures! Looks like your grandson had the best time and you as well! Love the video from yesterday, that was great! Enjoy your Thursday!

Jeanie said...

It looks like you made some great memories and have the million dollar photos to prove it.

That corgi :) said...

Have a Great Day!

Retired English Teacher said...

Fun times. Great memories. I'm glad you captured them with your camera.

Ginny said...

What great birthday pictures!!!! I LOVE the picture of the two of you out in the ocean, so very symbolic, too!!! WHAT was the stupid factory???? Is he 11 or 12 now? Give him a big Happy Birthday hug for me, and tell him I am very proud of him!!!!

Red Rose Alley said...

Oh, I love these ocean pictures. They are all wonderful, but my favorite is the "Silliness and Happiness" one. That is a picture to be framed. It is a treasure. You and your Grandson seem like you are so close to eachother.

Sally said...

Love all the pics. So glad you all had such a wonderful spring break! :)

I like when my daughter acts goofy also. It's those moments that mean so much.

Hope you're having a great day. A little chilly here. brrr

Mary said...

Looks to me like you all were having a blast!

Love the quote at the top...sometimes that becoming can be a struggle, but growth and change are. Gonna write that quote down.

Blondee said...

the two of you in the water together brought tears to my eyes. You are SUCH a blessing to that child, and such a wonderful Grandmommy. Seeing these pictures makes me miss my own Gram so much more.
And yes, you are so right about some of those pics being million dollar pics. I am impressed!! Most don't realize how rare those moments come for an SPD child.

Eva Ason said...

I love the photos :)
Big hugs

This is going to make for some amazing scrap booking : ) Thanks so much for sharing. I had to go ask Google what SPD was, so I also got an education here.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Sandie, Love the beach photos... Your grandson (actually all of you) seemed to have a fabulous time. We go to the beach next month--and I can't wait.
Hugs,
Betsy

Phabulous photos of people having fun. This is good.

skoots1mom said...

sweet pics...would have loved being at that beach!
so glad you had fun ;)

jack69 said...

Lotta great pictures, and I do believe I perceive a lefty as a grandson, they are supposed to be more accurate at throwing I hear!!

Paula said...

Lots of family pictures to treasure. Thanks for sharing.

Sush said...

Ahh good to see you and the fam making some 'Beach Music' memories! And I love the photo of you and your grandson holding hands in the waves, priceless!
Hugs~

Janie said...

There is nothing better than having a grandchild "beg you to go in the water". I am so glad you did. What a great life he has with you doing so much with him. Thanks for the great story of your time on the beach.

The Café Sucré Farine said...

Chatty - this looks like so...... much fun! I especially love the picture of you and your grandson in the ocean, so sweet - you need to frame this one!

Dolores said...

Priceless, sweet and wonderful pictures!!!!! Looks like a wonderful memorable trip......
Beautiful family......

GardenofDaisies said...

This post makes me smile!! I can't think of anything better than spending time at the beach with a grandson!! (I don't have one yet, but someday I hope to.)

Annesphamily said...

What fun you all had! I love all the family pics you shared! I love Jimmy Buffett too! I remember reading an article where he said his folks forced him to go to college. But he got his degree and look at all the money he has made! He is so talented!
I like your blog so much!
Hugs Anne
