Beach Bum

It’s been an incredibly long time since I’ve blogged. Sorry friends. It’s been a busy past few weeks, but also relaxing.

After celebrating Memorial Day with good friends and food at the lake and a little bingo, I packed up for a 10 day beach trip.

The first part of the trip was to celebrate Katelin and her upcoming wedding. We spent Wednesday-Saturday soaking up every ounce of sun we could. We also ate incredibly well and shopped a ton.

We even got to see an America-themed light show at The Wharf. Does it really get any better than that?

While the girls packed up to come home, I switched condos. I stayed for an additional week with the Irvin clan. I’ve been part of their annual beach trips for six years now (except for one summer when I lived in Kansas City).

I got to come up during the hottest part of the day and snuggle with this sweet girl during her naps.

This year provided a lot of entertainment thanks to the chairs next to ours. The Southeastern Conference was well represented. We made friends with Mississippi State and Missouri friends, and other Crimson Tiders as well.

Corn hole was brought out, and it got serious. Daily tournaments were played, the National Anthem was a requirement in the final round. There was a lot of good cornin’ happening.

The summer of ’13 has started off fantastically, even if I am a little burnt from 10 days of sun. Here’s to the continuation of an enjoyable summer for all. (And the hope that I don’t wait two and a half weeks to blog again!)
