Fun In The Sun

Vacation at the beach is not the same without some kids!
These are 3 of my grands. "Sweet Teen, Angel & Brother."
Believe it or not, my hair was fixed before this picture but the wind is so strong it does no good.
Paw Paw doesn't have to worry about the wind! Ha!
We are staying at the nicest place. We are staying on the first floor and wasn't sure we would like it but we love it. It is actually like it is the third floor because of the parking decks below. My Son In Law thought this was good advertisement.
Free Free Free Free! I don't think he was looking at the newspapers! Ha!
Look what "Angel" found at a store. It matches her perfectly!
Lil' Angel.

These 2 look mischievous! I think this is the Skipper & Gilligan.
Look at "Big Daddy" (my son in law). He is playing football with "Sweet Teen".
I sure am glad some of my family has energy. Gran (me) & Paw Paw (Sweet honey) just sit and people watch. It is really quite entertaining and doesn't cost a dime!
There is "Brother & Big Daddy" in the pool. I wanted to show you this pool. It is beautiful. It is called an infinity pool. See the water pouring over the side. This place has 3 outside pools, 6 hot tubs & an inside pool.
"Brother & Big Daddy" warming up. It is 91 degrees but so windy. The weather has been great.
Some of these people in these tubes in this lazy river are my family!
I have to tell you the funniest story. Me & Paw Paw are sitting on the side of the lazy river watching the kids when all of the sudden a very healthy woman grabbed one of these tubes and put her arms up and tried to slide into one. Well, she got stuck with her arms up in the air. It only went to her elbows and her neck. She could not get out or in. My sweet honey could not stop laughing. He is really not like that but he did tell me if they saw him laughing he would just have to apologize because that was the funniest thing he had ever seen. In the meantime she had bent over trying to get out of this thing when her glasses fell in the lazy river. She was so upset about the glasses floating around in the river that when her little bitty skinny hubby came to help her............she told him to leave her and go find the glasses. So here she stood all bent over with arms up in the air. It really was hilarious. He found her glasses and then came to her rescue. It was just one of those things where you would have to been there to see this. It was worth seeing. I love people watching!

“Those that say you can't take it with you never saw a car packed for a vacation trip.”

Looks like everyone is having a great time! Lovely place to vacation! I know the kids are loving it! It was kind of you not to get a picture of the healthy lady stuck in the tube with your everready camera! (But for us it would have been interesting!)

I'm glad you're having some great family time. I'm sure you could have snuck in just one picture of that woman to show us. lol You and your hubby will probably laugh about that together every time you think of it. I wouldn't have been able to keep from laughing either.

What fun pictures these are!!! What is the name of the hotel and where is it located? Looks like a place I'd enjoy, too.

Amelia said...

Oh, I agree about people watching...can prove to be very interesting at times.
