Florida...Florida...Florida!!

We started off our vacation with a few days in Destin to celebrate my bff, Katelyn's, wedding. Me, Meg, my mom, Aunt Kelly, Jake, and Kate went early on Thursday and my Dad, Luke, Brett, and Blake met us in Perdido Key on Saturday. While The Girls+Jake were there, Kate and I were enjoying a piece on key lime pie for breakfast when she accidently hit it with her arm. One of my proudest parental moments, this darling didn't let any of it waste, but instead licked off every bit from her arm! She is definitely my child and has some Bousson blood in her! We love to eat!



Katelyn and Jamie's rehearsal dinner was at this fabulous location...her house! I spent many a spring breaks here! We ate crawfish until we about popped, and enjoyed hanging out with friends I hadn't seen in a while.
Luke and the Bride...it turned out much cuter than me and her :( This was Saturday with the wedding on Sunday. But before I could run off for wedding preparations, we had to celebrate Luke's 2nd Father's Day!!

Daddy and Mini Me on our balcony...he made that outfit for her and brought it with him. Yes folks, he is smart, good looking, and multitalented!
I followed them out to the beach before I had to leave. She wasn't crazy about the water or sand...
but loved her beach chair under the tent.

The wedding was absolutely beautiful! Here is my cute family before hand.
I went to find my parents at the reception, and they were sitting with some of my favorite people! We got to see them two weekends in a row!


Kate loves her Pawpaw!


Luke had some fun with our camera. The wedding was on a golf course, and the reception was in the country club. There was a huge deck overlooking this lake, and the tent was on a lower deck. They had these awesome green lights lighting up the water. It rained...poured...and it reflected so nicely for some cool shots! The next one is cool because it was a really slow shutter speed, and you can see the outline of my belly where I was trying to get out of the picture.
The rest of the week was spent lounging. It was absolutely wonderful! I look forward to this week every year, and it did not disappoint!





This is her smiling at Brett. Watch out, Aunt Meg!
Liking the water a little more each day...

Finally, walking in the sand!


Possible Christmas Card

Or maybe this one...KK might like this one better because Luke's face is in a shadow. He almost got cut out of last year's! haha!

Everyone minus Nana

24 weeks!


Finally, a nap by the water





Dear Florida, I miss you. Do you miss me? Keep your beaches pretty and I'll be back same time, same place, next year. Love, Amanda

Enjoying the Sunshine

by hiding in the SHADE!!! in the pool! with some ice cream! Whew! It has been so hot here in June, that July has to be better! We have been to the beach, enjoyed some pool time on the 4th, and just loved having Luke home a little more this summer.

Luke took Kate to Tremont at the end of May (yes, I am that behind!), and they had a wonderful time visiting his family.
Here is Kate and Blake feeding Bunbun, the rabbit. She loves to have Blake's attention, and is he isn't looking at her she does something to make sure he does, but she isn't too crazy about him holding her. I think he is too far off the ground. haha.
She came to wake me up after I had been sleeping one day, and found my glasses on the side table. Hopefully she got her Daddy's perfect vision and not mine!
How could I not wake up in a good mood?

We figured 15 months wasn't too early to start her out on some chores. KK taught her how to do laundry early!
She still has a pretty good appetite, but we have found a new favorite...spaghetti! She has gotten funny about meat in general, like no sandwich meat, ground beef, etc., but she will eat it up in spaghetti sauce. We even had stuffed shells this week and she loved it. She also won't eat a sandwich, unless you fix it for yourself. But don't try to put one on her plate!

Look for a Family Vacy '10 post soon!

Ah, summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it.-- Russel Baker
