Vacation 2011

So this is going to be a long, massive, picture filled post (thank me now for warning you).  So here you go ... 
New Smyrna Beach, FL -
ESPN Family Vacation 2011

Where we indulged in Mr. ESPN's favorite beverage

We swam and built sand castles with cousins



We gave lots of hugs and kisses

We didn't smile for many pictures

We learned to fish from our Uncle


We proudly caught lots of fish

We refused to go anywhere near the fish and instead stayed on the other end of the dock

We ventured to the top of the lighthouse
(some of us had to be carried by dad)


We posed for pictures at the top of the lighthouse

We enjoyed the view from the top

We went on evening walks along the beach


We ate lots of fresh seafood by the water
(some enjoyed it a little more than others)


We watched the boats

We visited with Great-Grandmas

We hunted for bears
(and did so in an 80's Prom Dress - Bia)

We visited with Moose

We met a shark out of water

And visited with Yogi (the dog - not the bear)!

Needless to say we had a pretty busy week with most of it spent at the beach and/or eating!  Thanks to all of my family for everything, we had a great time with you all!!

Fun times!! That beach looks heavenly. I'm in need of some white sand time. :)

Bia cracks me up. She and Hudson would make a good team - I have to catch him off guard in order to get a smile for the camera. Glad y'all had a good vacation!!
