Mom, Amelia and I had a fantastic time at the beach. Mom said it was her "best vacation ever". But, as cute and sweet as Amelia is, I find it hard to believe it was better than St. Lucia. I suppose that is Grandma love. We didn't do a whole lot so I will mainly post in pictures.
We started out with me making about 10 wrong turns in Columbus and adding an hour to our trip. We also found out that Amelia likes riding in the car about as much as her Mommy does. Someone had to sit in the backseat and talk to her on the way there and back. I also discovered that you need one Suburban per child for a weekend vacation. I have no idea what we would have done if I still had the Volvo. I'm sure stuff would have been stacked on the roof, truck and probably the hood!
Due to the crawling phase, we pretty much avoided the beach and stayed at the pool. I am not a clean freak or obnoxious about germs, but sand in the mouth, ears and eyes was more than I could handle. We will save the sand for walking, not crawling and face planting (you will see what I mean in a few pictures). So here is our story:
Mom has a high school friend, Sammy, who has a fantastic house at the beach. He was kind enough to let us come stay there for our trip. We got a great surprise Friday night when he showed up with his girlfriend, Mitzi. Mom and I instantly loved her! They are such a cute couple, I only wish we would have had more time to spend visiting with them.
I just love this girl. Speaking of love, don't you love my cover up? I got it at TJ Max - Maxinista here - for like $15. It was normally $97.99! Now, it is so cute, but $98?! That's a little silly.

Friday night we went out to dinner and I had crablegs. I had been craving them ever since we decided to go to the beach and they did not let me down. Us girls devoured the crablegs and wine and beer like a bunch of boys!
Amelia thought it was hilarious! She was also a little ticked that all she got was saltine crackers
3 generations. I couldn't ask for more, except for maybe 4 generations. I miss my Grandma. She would have loved this little girl to pieces.
If this doesn't melt your heart, we are no longer friends and please quit reading my blog. She did love the sand, but I didn't let her get in it. One day soon...
As promised, the cupcake wedding cake. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!
They also served Gazpacho and Gumbo over grits in martini glasses. It was a sweet beach wedding with an awesome reception. The bride was beautiful and they have just a perfect little family.
