Hot and Happy Summer

It's been nearly a month since I've blogged! I feel like I've missed out on a lot.
Kevin is now home from two loooong months in Mississippi. I flew down twice to see him and visit the ocean....remember, I'm a "land-lubber" from Kansas so to see a REAL beach is exciting!
On the second trip down to Biloxi, I flew one way and drove the 17 hours home with Kevin. I was as happy as he was to bring him home. I now feel like my life will get back to normal.

Walking on the beach on day, I saw this and it reminded us how much fun our grandbabies would have playing in the water and sand.

These are some shrimping boats. This scene seems so picturesque to me.
