Bringing Sunshine

Rain and more Rain.....this is what we have had, here in East Texas.   AND....more rain is on it's way!  

I am need of, I decided to bring a little of the bright warm rays, right here to my blog. 

Most of you have probably seen most of these photos....but hopefully you will enjoy them again.   

These are photos from our Summer 2014 Florida vacation.  I would love to be there right now!! Surely, the sun is shining on the beach!!

                                                             Family Photo

Family Beach Volleyball game.......

                                                               Sam and Shug

Sam.....trying not to have his picture taken...

Two of the grands....enjoying the ocean water..

Tori.....Winning..... the watermelon eating contest.

Trista....doing a little ballet during the VB game.

Grands....having fun on the beach. bombing this picture.

Shanda and Mylee....playing in the pool.

 Sam and I got up this morning....and drove to Lufkin, to pick up a peddle car that he had purchased.   It rained all the way there and home... is still raining!

I'm not trying to complain here...and I know that come July and August, we will be begging for a slow soaking rain.  It would really be nice to have a good week of nothing but Sunshine!!  The weather reports are showing MORE rain tomorrow and next week.

In the meantime...I will just have to spend more time, looking at these Florida pictures and thinking back to how nice it was, this past summer...

Hugs to you all...

Oh My how I loved your Beach Tour. What a beautiful family you have. Loved all the pictures. Aren't grandchildren the best gift from above?

Soon you will be basking in the the meantime...your smile made me feel sunshine.

Love and Hugs.

Your beach pictures are great! What a beautiful family! But, guess what? We have a little get away in Myrtle Beach and it is raining here, too. Just like you, more is on the way. I'm craving getting outside in the yard to do some looking forward to some sunshine, soon. Hopefully, you'll get a little sunshine, too.

I love your pictures, makes me warm just looking at them! I am so ready for some warmth - we have had sunshine, but along with the sun, came the wind...and it was cold! We could also use some rain, so send it our way when you are done with it!

the photos are lovely, you have such a good looking family, I will trade my snow for some rain, OK?

Joanna Jenkins said...

Hi Shug, This was a perfect idea! Hope those beautiful suntanned faces made you feel better-- it did me!

That's a great idea of something to do on a rainy day... Your FL pictures are fabulous.. Where is the family going THIS summer?

Hope you are feeling good now.

When we had rain last week, I kept telling myself how green the grass will be and the ground cover will be so happy.
Love your pics.
