Vacationing Vicariously...

Emma

If I can't go on vacation myself,... looking at the warmth, sunlight and water in a picture is the next best thing.  Seeing  Emma and Bailey having a ball is next!
What can be more fun then digging in the sand at Sanibel?

So sweet Donna, I just love the photo of her with the hat and sand bucket. You have to frame that one...it would be sweet in black and white too, very nostalgic.

Best wishes for a wonderful day Donna :)

There is something so magical about babies at the beach. That hat is to die for.

I've wanted to go to Sanibel for years! I've heard how beautiful it is. Have you ever gone yourself? The pictures of your granddaughters are precious - they're just beautiful!

I just realized that my daughter Katie was here and I was signed into her blogging account. The last comment was ME - not her. Sheesh!

Cute pics! There's nothing better than seaside fun! Having just come back from our day at the seaside I really enjoyed seeing your family photos. Hope the windy weather has subsided where you are.

I wish I could have a wonderful vacation like this! :D
Imagine... imagine... imagine...

Darlene said...

It's just too bad you weren't with those darling girls! Emma and Bailey looked like they were having a lot of fun. I love being at the beach and especially if grandchildren are involved.

Pretend vacations are cool! I take one almost every night watching the Travel Channel :-)

Happy Mother's Day Donna Sweetie...
Just wanted to pop over and say hello and let you know I was thinking of you today. Hope you have a beautiful day today, and that it is surrounded with beauty, scents of all sorts, and love and laughter.

Thank you for taking me to the beach today. I could feel the spray on my face, the sand between my toes, and hear the seagull overhead. A beautiful, beautiful share sweet friend.

Many hugs and much love, Sherry
