{vacation pics}

The beach was beautiful!  We spent the entire vacation at the beach with occasional visits to the pool.  My entire family from New Orleans convenes to spend this time together each summer.  I put SPF 70 on our faces and sprayed SPF 50 on our bodies every morning!  I'm still pretty pale but Lil Petunia got quite the savage tan.  This happens every year--it doesn't matter that I reapply her sunscreen several times each day--she just naturally tans.


Oh!  Lil Petunia learned how to surf!  Many of the grandchildren took surfing lessons and had quite a fun time!  Here she is with her instructor who is a professional surfer:


Here is one of my four sisters (& one brother) with her son.  She came home with us for a few days of extra vacation:

How fun! Also, I'm incredibly jealous that Lil' P tans so easily. I'm destined to look like Casper...or a lobster.
