During the next four days we ate, we drank and were merry. Friday we spent the day on a BIG lake and although I used sunscreen I walked away with a BIG sunburn. I'm talking glow in the dark, it's getting hot in here, I'm going to look like the tanning mom when this thing fades to tan, sunburn. It's a little better today but still not pretty. I'd say I am old enough to know better but I did think I was knowing better and used sunscreen. No AD Sunscreen - NO GOOD!!!
Other than that sunburn thing It was a fun weekend and I think my parents enjoyed the family time and really after 50 years they deserved to be celebrated - 50 years - with the same person - no one thrown from the canoe. I think that is quite an accomplishment and testimony to love, perseverance and working it out! Congratulations m & d (although as I was looking at the pictures from the weekend I noticed I have pictures of my mom and I have pictures of my dad but I don't have any pictures of them together - but I promise they were there - together - really, trust me :-) - I'm not making this up).
TTFN... Go celebrate love and marriage and enjoy the pictures...
The captain (my dad) and co-captain Lauren, she took her job very seriously.
I could tell Sydney and my nephew Nicholas were having a very deep conversation on the beach so I took this picture. It turns out she wanted to know what he was looking for in a girlfriend and was quizzing him on all the important things like what his favorite color is, what foods he likes to eat, what he likes to do on a date, what kind of skin he likes, etc. She concluded her friend Gabriella would be a perfect match - of course Gabriella is only 9 and Nick is 20 but what's a little age difference. I'm sure Gabriella's parents would be thrilled with the match.
But the best part of that deep conversation was this:
Syd - I think I should bury you in the sand.
Nick - I don't think I would like that.
Syd - Well then I'll start with your mouth.
No one said the girl wasn't smart :-)
Sydney in her element enjoying the water, sun and wind. And those sparkles on the water - I was informed those were the fish taking pictures of her.
Mom, Jordan and Nick hamming it up.
I'll take this one!
