Gulf Shores, Alabama

The past couple of days have included time spent with Emma, Trish, Lily, and Grits with blue skies, white sand, Pabst Blue Ribbon, and layers of SPF on the beaches of Gulf Shores, Alabama.  We have cooked many fantastic meals one of my favorites being the sauteed shrimp (bought at a local stand, and de-pooped and veined by all us ladies) in oil & chunks of garlic over a bed of noodles with a cream-marinara sauce. MmmMM..  Yesterday Emma brought me breakfast in bed, an everything bagel with cheese & spinach and a slice of pepperjack cheese all toasted to yummy goodness! Needless to say we have been eating very good considering we haven’t eaten in one local restaurant, saving that cash money is easy to do when you have great cooks in the house.  I haven’t my camera with me, *SIGH,* but we have been taking some photos that I’ll share later, as for now I leave you with some fun pics courtesy of Flickr from the 1960s.
the caption said this was The Netherlands, look at that sky!
Lily (Trish’s little girl) is a soon to be five yr. old with a wild personality thats had us all over the place playing in sand, swimming in the pool at all hours, and watching all the Sponge Bob Square Pants I can possible handle. 
This photo and the following are so darling I couldn’t help but post, I love the bandana tied around her head and everyone’s swim gear, retro!
I am currently searching for a similar suit via Ebay && Etsy, HOW RAD is this?!?! 

Today I will be sporting my handed down unicorn t-shirt since my back is burned worse than ever before, such a shame too, I layered sunscreen on all day but MUST have forgot the upper back. sucks but taking refuge under the umbrella isn’t all that bad…
