~You Asked For It~

You all have been commenting and e-mailing that you want photos.

Well....the photo fairy showed up and granted your wish.

These are truly just misc. photos.

SSSSSSHHHHHHH....I didn't ask anyone if I could put them on The Maisy Report.
Heck, they are mostly family...they can take it up with me at Christmas.




Back of the house.
We were actually on a lake.
The ocean was a block away~


The living room...
AKA "the jig-saw puzzle" room.
We finished 3 1/3 puzzles...and they were hard ones.


The family room.
The boys watched a lot of those shows where they show people getting hurt doing stupid stunts.
Those are definitely not Maisy shows.
Thank goodness it was a big house and that I just adore the boys.


The kitchen.
Needs a little updating but my beer and wine didn't seem to mind.
Hey, if they're happy so am I.


Upstairs hallway.
Not sure why I threw that one in.
Are ya still with me?


Jakob....my Jakob.
He had to leave a couple days early but heck, we had him for 6 days.
I'll take what I can get.


The oldest and the youngest.
Jakob going in for some Bradley love.


This is my ever moving brother-in-law, Michael (Bill's bro)
He is so easy to be around.
We were always the first two up in the morning.
He exercised....I didn't.


My nephew, Cody, with a crab in the net.
I'm such a proud aunt.


My hilarious sister-in-law, Kathy.
I miss her energy now that I'm home.
She's so fun to talk to.


Bradley after catchin' a wave.
He loves to ocean...
Just like his mama~


Bradley felt the place needed a little sprucing up with balloons.
Only a kids would think of that.
Hey B....thanks for the party all week!!!


Michael and Kathy puzzlin' it out.


Kids playing Yahtzee.
We played so many games.
If we weren't on the beach we stayed inside.

Me and Haley.
This is the only photo of me.
I'm always the one with the camera.
I didn't even do my hair there....lots of humidity.


The boys doing a little fishing.
We kept seeing fish jumping...
I don't think they caught anything.


This is John (Cody's friend) and Cody.
They are such cool kids.
I loved spending time with them.


Bradley doing what Bradley loves....
Gotta love a DS.


This is Jakob and his friend, Sam.
Sam is really interesting.
He's in med school in Florida...only a 3 hour drive.
Maybe next year he can stay longer that one night.



SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.....there ya have it.
This is the final chapter to my vacation.
I really do need to snap out of it.

I'm just not ready for summer to end...
I don't want Bradley to go back to school.
I don't want to have to pack a lunch for him everyday.
I don't want to have to worry if B got his homework done.
I don't want to have to put him to bed early....I actually like being with him(most of the time).

However, with new seasons comes new memories, challenges and experiences.
I guess all I have to say to that is......
BRING IT ON!!!!!!!!

Oh my, what a fun trip. Looks like lots of good times. Love the house.

Glad you were able to spend time w/your oldest son too. I'm sure that was very special.

Oh and I love spanish moss too. When we head down that way, I exclaim way too much over spanish moss.

Thanks for sharing your pics! It looks like a beautiful place! You guys all have good lookin' kids!
I know what you mean about not wanting summer to end. I feel the same way. I love staying up late each night with the boys. We started watching The Nanny and it has been a tradition all summer long. I used to hate that show but now I think it's hilarious and I laugh my butt off.
Have a good evening Amy!

Sarah said...

Great pictures! I love it when family trips turn into family fun! Playing games, doing puzzles, enjoying the beach, all perfect in my book!
So...whose house is that? Is it available for rent? It is gorgeous!

I think I would have wanted to stay there too! Glad to hear you had a wonderful vacation! I just found out this week that we are spending a week on the Oregon coast next July in adjoining three story beach houses for our big family reunion. I LOVE hanging with all my Aunts, Uncles and Cousins....It is so fun now that the next generation is getting big!! You look adorable in your relaxed vacation shot.
Blessings~LillySue

Tracey said...

Yeah for vacation pictures! Isn't lounging around playing games and drinking just the best? That's what we did on our vacation...that and the beach (well and the dancing horses show too, but that's a story for another day).
