seashore, seashells, and sand castles

McGlothin Family NestSince moving to Florida it has been a pretty easy transition......both for me, the hubs, and the kids. One reason the hubs has all his friends from officer's school down here {I know lucky him}. For me and the kids well there is plenty to do to fill our days at home. We live only 15 minutes from one of our fave places to go.........the BEACH.
Oh how I love that place.
My parents live a whole 5 minutes away from the beach, so you can imagine during my high school years how much I frequented the beach. ALOT. Even in the winter months I would go for a walk or a run.......have you ever been on the beach with snow on it??!! It is a sight to see. So, when I lived in Cali I lived far from the beach. I know everyone always thinks that if you live in California you are within walking distance from the beach and Hollywood. I am here to tell you a secret..........there are places in Cali that are far far from the beach and the city of Angels. We lived about 2 hours away from the beach.......that was really tough on me!!! I am just sooooo estatic to be back by the ocean!!!!!!!
This week I am thankful for so many things
let me narrow it down for ya:
25. living close to the beach once again
26. Teddy and Tay's love for the beach
27. my husband for the joining the navy......most
of his potential duty stations are close to a beach
28. building sand castles
29. finding pretty seashells
30. days at the swimming pool
31. the pond in our neighborhood
32. crab cakes.......Mmmmm I loveeee them
34. lunchtime in the sunshine
35. rainy days in the summer
So make your day a little brighter and tell me what you are thankful for??
