Finally...Vacation Pics!

Ok, so I apologize if you are all wondering why the heck I haven't posted pictures from our big vacation just seemed so overwhelming!! I took 700 pictures, and then I also have Jen's and Amy's as well. So, I just couldn't choose! And as much as I'd love to share them all, I'm sure at some point you'd be bored of looking at all those pictures of my friends and family...even as charming as we all are! LOL!!!

So without further ado, here are just a few of my faves....

All the kiddos, after we tie-dyed t-shirts...what a crew!

The Gals...Me, Amy, Jen & Jodi. As usual, I am the lone blonde in a sea of brunettes...could I be intimidated by other blondes? hmmmm.....
Noah using the tub faucet for a drinking fountain...OMG!
My monkeys...what cuties!
Abby, Kendall & Elena
Jen, DJ, Zachary, Isaiah & Jackson
Amy, Steve, Elena & Claire
Jodi, Marvin, Sam, Alex & Abby
Our family
Noah, jumping the surf
You know who...
That's my boy!
This picture of Barry and Kendall slays me every time. Look how grown up she looks...

And this one too...the high five after Kendall rode her first wave in all by herself. She was so excited!
Noah, showing me his sand covered hand. I also have a pic of him showing me the other one, which wasn't sandy. Isn't he funny?
Me and my girl...toes in the sand
Possibly my favorite pic from the whole trip. The lighting was perfect, the wispy hair, the jagged smile. I just love it.
Ok, folks...there you have it! We had so much fun playing on the beach, working puzzles, playing board games, cooking and eating and just sitting around talking...I can't wait to do it again! Kik, maybe MB is the perfect place for your blogmeet!!! I'd love to get my butt back down there!

Looks like a fantastic time with some great memories to go along with it. You need to blow up the pic of Kendall. I can only imagine how good it would look in black and white.

Can I just mention again that I want your camera!

M, J, B, G, Sam & Sadie said...

Gorgeous pictures! LOVE the family pic and sandy hand. Kendall does look so grown up in that one pic of her in the bikini with her dad!! Brooklyn's standing here looking at these pics with me going "Mom, who is that girl?" ha ha..she thinks I'm weird for reading someones blog that I don't "know" (in real life)! ha ha

Your vacation looks SOOOO nice! I have always wanted to do the beach house thing in Myrtle Beach!! I loved how you described that you all just beached it and played games and ate and relaxed...sounds ideal to me...oh and just about made me cry! LOL!!! just kidding!

I love the family pictures on the beach...I know many people who paid a photographer to get a family photo like that TONS of money at the Holland Beach right about where Ella almost jumped into the water except Barry & Chuck saved her...yah...right there...they paid tons of money and your pictures looks professional but I am guessing they are from your awesome new camera that if it comes up missing 'somehow'...don't ask me b/c I won't have any idea where it went! Okay?! LOL!!

You just made me want to go to MB like 100x more!! Glad you had a good time!

Kiki said...

Blogmeet in MB...maybe that is something that could happen, but everyone would need to agree...its a trip...anyone wanna make it here next June???

Kuckie, again, it was a blast having you here...hope it isn't the last time!!!

KC said...

Love the pictures! Looks like you all had a Great Time.
Those were the perfect family photos. Did you take them?! If so, girl you have definitely got talent!

Claire said...

What a great idea - MB Blog Meet in 09!!! Your photos are great and love the colors you used for the t-shirts!!!

Kuckie said...

Kate - Will do! And I'm with you on the Christmas card...great minds think alike! ;0)

Jenelle - It was really wonderful! And that pic looks good in b&W, but even better in Sepia! I LOVE MY NEW CAMERA TOO!!!! LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!!!!

MJ- Thanks! Kendall loves to read blogs with me. I think she feels like she is just automatically friends with everyone's kids...

T - You are too funny! I just knew I'd make you cry...LOL! If my camera comes up missing, I know EXACTLY where to go...Michigan, of course, to see my two buddies!!!

Kik - I wouldn't have missed you and Kenady for all the rice in China!! I'll be back...(said like Ah-nold, of course!! heehee)

KC - Thanks, but no, I can't take the credit. My friend Amy took them, and SHE is AWESOME with a camera!!!

Claire - If the blogmeet happens, I'll be looking forward to seeing you again, of course! I just loved meeting you!
