Christmas In July

This trip to the beach is our Christmas gift to our children. We are having a wonderful time. The weather is great. This is the first time my son has came with us on a family vacation in years. He is not well, so he is not enjoying this trip as much as I hoped he would. He can't go and do the things that the other kids are doing. Right now, we are in the condo, relaxing after an evening stroll on the beach and the all the kids and grandkids except my son are off riding go carts and all that stuff they love to do. I rather be here relaxing. I am actually going to do a little embroidery tonight thanks to my Mom. I am excited about doing this. The first night we were here, we went and ate seafood. Last night my oldest daughter, Shannon made lasagna and spaghetti, garlic toast and salad for all of us. She made banana splits for dessert. It was yummy. Tonight my other daughter, Maranda made Chicken enchiladas served with chips & salsa and refried beans for us. She is fixing chocolate chip cookies for dessert. I am sorry to say that I forgot to make pictures of this. It was great too. Here are a few more pictures. Please keep us in your prayers as we have our Christmas in July!
