flashback Friday

Don't know about you but I'm already getting sick of ice, snow and Winter and it's only the beginning of January...ugh. We've had more snow and bitter cold temps so I brought these pics out for the memories of our Mexico vacation last July. I've been wishing I was right there feeling the warm sun on my face and watching my kids play in the sand and water. And a refreshing fruity drink sure would be nice...
Well...we have no vacation plans presently, but a girl can dream can't she?

We've had a busy week with school and getting back to a more normal routine. Will had his 4 year well check up today. He is healthy as a horse, has grown 9 inches(yes I said 9 in 1 year!) in height and now weighs 35 lbs.
Looking at the above picture of him, I can't help but smile at that adorable face and wish y'all a Happy Friday! I'm hoping to get outside in the snow for some pics with my 2 littles. Have a wonderful weekend and stay warm!

Oh, what with the cold and massive amounts of snow here - your flashback friday is perfect.

I love the coloring in these pictures. And the sand on your daughters hands in the first shot just says it all.

Ahhhhh- Thanks for sharing these lovely photos of your two littles enjoying the sun and surf, Gail- a reminder of what's to come! (even if we have to wait until June!)

Nice pictures! Oh, wouldn't a warm, sandy beach be good about now?
It's ridiculously cold.

My goodness, that boy is growing. 9 inches is a lot!

Nine inches? In one year? Did he have the growth hormones to go along with all of that? Cuz the Tongginator gets MEAN when she foes through a growth spurt.

As to the photos... sigh.

Michelle said...

Happy Friday, Gail!!

LOVE this post. I was thinking the same thing when I happened upon our vacation pictures at the beach in June. I may post some as well if this cold just doesn't let up.

I CANNOT believe William grew 9 inches! That must be some kind of record.

Hugs to you, my friend!
