Beach Birthday

It's hard for me to believe, but my "babies" turned seven on Saturday!!!  It seems like just yesterday I found out I was pregnant (what a shocker that was!!),  and then they were born. 

The years have flown by so quickly!  On Saturday, we celebrated their 7th birthday.  We stayed at the beach the entire weekend and just enjoyed some quiet time.  We had a beach themed birthday party just for our own family, and we had fun just doing nothing much at all.
Me with my only daughter, Laiken.  I didn't fix my hair at ALL the entire weekend, nor did I put on anything besides a swimsuit and flipflops -- not even any makeup!!  I enjoyed that so much since I have to dress up for work every day.  It was nice to unplug and unwire. 

We made sand castles and played in the water while the boys fished...  They caughts LOTS of fish!!!
Of course we took time out for a very special birthday party....
What a great weekend!!  If you've never been to the Gulf Coast, you have missed a treat. I am so lucky to live in such a beautiful place!!!
Happy Birthday to my "babies"!!!  They were the best Mother's Day present anyone could ever imagine. 

Linking up to Debbie Doo's Newbie Party!


  1. Farica, I'm loving that water and sand. I need to unwind there, I think.
    Come on over to see my Weigelas this week.

  2. How fun...looks like an awesome celebration. My younger boy loves to fish and did that most of the day yesterday. Thanks for joining my newbie party.

  3. Well, a big happy birthday to the twins! It's necessary to unplug and that uninterrupted family time is priceless. Farica, you look great sans makeup - love the hair, too. All these pics of the water and sand make me want to hop a plane to the beach!
