Beach and Baby Shower

In the middle of July we went down to Beaumont for Mickie's Baby shower. Mickie and I have been friends since Elementary school. She is pregnant with her first little girl Catherine Nicole and I couldn't be more happy for her. She is due August 31 and I can't wait until it is time to meet her. The shower was on Sunday so went down on Friday and stayed the whole weekend. I don't have any pictures from the shower, but a friend sent me this picture 6 of us that were all friends in school.

It was so nice to see them all. Three of them I hadn't seen since graduation, Amie I haven't seen since Maddie was still riding in her infant carrier carseat and I talk to Mickie at least once a week, but don't get to see her near enough.

On Saturday, we went to Crystal Beach. The last time we had been there was when I wrote this post about the damage from Hurricane Ike. It has improved so much. I was really impressed with the progress that they have made. There are still lots of things that are gone that we missed (especially the water slide) and lots of destruction, but lots of cabins are repaired or rebuilt and there were several resteraunts back open.

Anyway we went with Laurie, Nat, Sarah and Linh, Michael and Caleb. Everyone had a great time except Maycee. She wasn't herself all day. She got sand in her eyes and cried for a long time, fell on the skim board and skinned her booty all up on the shells and fell asleep. Later she came down with a high fever. I felt really bad for her because she would have had so much fun if she had been feeling better. She turned out to have a virus. :(

Sarah and Laurie

Nat, Caleb, Maddie and Maycee. They went over to look at the shark head and were yelling "Dead Fish" when Guy was taking their picture. So Silly!

The kids loved grabbing the bait fish that Michael and Nat were catching and throwing them in the bucket.

Enjoying the water.

Maddie on the skim board. I have no idea why the picture looks this way, it is kinda creepy though. Almost like you can see through her???
Maycee falling off the skim board. This is when she skinned up her booty.

Nat on the skim board. He didn't fall. It looks like he is falling, but he was able to catch himself and stay on his feet :)

Linh and Michael. They are expecting a new baby also.

Maycee sleeping on the beach. It looks like her head is laying on the sand, but it wasn't when I laid her down??
Maycee with her silly goggles.

Uncle Nat buying the kids any ice cream.

Caleb and Michael fishing.

Maddie eating her tomato that she brought with her from Nana and Papa's garden.
