4th of July

We are back from Sunset Beach, and as always we had a great time.  It was a packed house this year, but we wouldn't have it any other way:)  We celebrated July 4th with most of our yearly traditions: festive attire, dancing, beach parade, watching fireworks from the crows nest and a cookout.
I made a Red, White, and Blue trifle that was yummy.  Stefanie and Katie wanted in on the 4th dessert action so they turned graham crackers into American Flag cookies:)
We also soaked in as much fun in the sun while we were on vacation (maybe a little too much- we both got a little burnt). We enjoyed playing beach games, watching Stef and Katie dance and tumble, riding waves, reading, and catching up.
Here is the whole gang (the girls gave some of us nicknames a few years ago that have stuck:)
Pop, BeccaBoo, Katie, George, Lillian, Stefanie, Ryan-The Original, Seantini, Baby Ryan, Andy, and Lulu.

Rachel, Rebecca and I also took the loonngg walk to the Kindred Spirit (a mail box on the beach where you write letters and they publish them).  This has become a special part of the week for us...plus one of the only times it is just the three of us.
At night we either play homemade charades or putt putt.  This year guys finally broke their losing streak against the girls and were victorious in charades...(Ryan wrote the last sentence and we are currently arguing because the girls ALWAYS win).
and guess who won putt putt....
I of course couldn't get enough of this little guy.

The last night we were there we went to Dockside for dinner.  We have been going to this restaurant and taking the same pictures for over 15 years now.  I really wish I could find the original one and show yall the comparison....hilarious.
Look forward to doing it all over again next year!!!
