Our two and a half day trip to Destin was fun, even though it was cut short. We jam packed it full of hours on the beach, shopping, lounging and eating some good food!
Daddy and Jackson digging their hole. Guess what (or who) they were going to put in it.....?
Charlie! He didn't mind at all...in fact, he stayed in the hole for quite a while, content and playing (eating) sand...
He's like, "What IS this stuff?"
Lovin' the beach
Jackson decided he needed to pack him in a little tighter...look at that tan Jackson's got going on!
My sis and me trying to get some sun...while a 1 year old and 3 year old were crawling/running all over us. So much for a sand- free blanket!
Mr. G Q himself...he's even posing. What's that all about?

I don't know why this was the cutest thing to me yesterday. I found Jackson on the stairs with his "head flashlight" on and him putting bee stickers all over himself. He didn't pay much attention to me...until I whipped the camera out.
Focusing on getting all of the stickers off the page and onto his body...
I asked for a smile....and I got one, but he was too busy to look at the camera. Couldn't take his eyes off of those bee stickers!
I'm not sure how this picture got started. I walk around the corner and here in front of me stands the Gilmore human totem pole. They were looking at themselves in front of the big mirror over the mantle...and laughing hysterically. (no, my husband can rarely be found WEARING a shirt. Sorry!)

James climbed up the tree and Jackson watched him very intently. Look how little Jackson looks in that picture!
Charlie prefered to do his own thing and push his car around the yard. (Don't worry, the kids came under the porch when massive limbs were falling to the ground.)
1. Throw stick into tall grass so Champ can't find it....
2. Champ going in after his stick...
3. A couple of minutes later he retrieves the stick and is a happy Champers....
4. Until happy Champers chokes on tree bark....good luck with that one buddy!

It's been outside ever since he "found" it and retrieved it. It's got some bumps and bruises....but I had a brilliant idea to bring it indoors....
a little elbow grease....
...some sanding paper....
2 cans of almond colored spray paint....
and two hours later....
It made a comfy little home in the corner of the study!
Total cost of project: $7
I'm a happy camper!
Now we're off to Michael's to craft some wreaths for the front door. I have to make two...because we have two doors....I'm thinking I'll do a fall theme...it is just around the corner ya know...thank goodness!
Well, um, actually a pretty nice little Saturday, we're going to go to Home Depot. Yeah, buy some wallpaper, maybe get some flooring, stuff like that. Maybe Bed, Bath, & Beyond, I don't know, I don't know if we'll have enough time......

I found a really cool website where you can play with your digital pictures and do lots of cool things with them. Thought these turned out pretty cool. You can also order prints from the website of your "artwork." You can "Warholize" yourself here.
Christian came over the other day and I decided to put them two to work. They had tons of fun washing windows....who cares if there were streaks!!?
I have the same picture of Jackson in this very crib and these very pj's. I had to throw them away this morning after I took the pic...too many holes in them...so sad!
Eating his two packets of oatmeal this morning...cause one just doesn't cut it anymore. I am scared to know what my grocery bill is going to be in a few short years...
This one doesn't care what is in front of him...as long as he's eating! (I'm shuttering as I think of that grocery bill...)
Mr. Jackson was beside himself with excitement. When he woke up I said to him, "Do you remember that sailboat that Nanna was going to send you in the mail?" He shoots back with, "IT'S HERE????" Soooooooooooo excited! Thanks Nanna. Sorry it cost you an arm and a leg to "ship."

Of course, he looked at me like I was crazy...but I thought I did see some wheels starting to turn in his pretty little head. Not a bad idea, eh honey?
We had a fun trip minus the weather. You'd think we were in the middle of the tropical rain forest with as much rain as we encountered EVERYDAY....but thank goodness for outlet malls and stores galore in Destin:)
