I'm Back!

We decided to go with.....
Any combo of black, white or khaki. As you can see, we had a smaller group this year. Since we went later in the summer, school had already started so my aunt and two cousins could not come. Also, since Cody had just started his new job earlier this month he didn't go :( and my younger brother didn't go. My other grandparents didn't end up going either.
We had wonderful weather so we were so grateful! The day before we left, the extended forecast said it was going to rain every day we were there. But we were hopeful and it only rained one day we were there so that was our shopping day (more on that later). Here are a few pictures from our week. As you can see, our main focus was on Zach.

I'm busy unpacking and doing laundry but I am going to get my fall decorations out later today and tomorrow. I can't wait to put all of it out!

Several of you guessed black for our color combo! We also got several ideas for next year too! Thanks for all of your sweet comments!

I love that color combination for the picture! You all look gorgeous. Seriously, you have a great looking family! I've been getting my fall decor out. My MIL is coming Wed and I didn't want to decorate in front of her. It's something I like to do alone. ;-) I can't wait to see your fall decor. I think I can speak for most of us when I say we missed you!

Our Complete Family said...

Welcome back hun! You all looked amazing in your photo. The colors are sooo good together (I'll have to make a mental note and steal this idea for when we go again!). Looks like your tent setup was the place to be! You guys thought of it all~ a baby pool, shade, perfect! Happy fall decorating today! Hugs~ Les

Natasha said...

Love the combo! Notice how the guys opted for the Khaki! Your black and white dress is adorable by the way.

Harris Family said...

I already told Katie, but ya'lls family is so precious! I love your dress!!! It looks like a fun trip!

megs @ whadusay said...

I am so glad I stumbled upon your blog. We are hoping to get family pictures on the beach later this year and already I am stressing about the "what to wear" question.

I was unsure about the somewhat traditional khaki and white look, but looking at your picture with the black added into that color scheme - I LOVE it.

So I think that is what we are going to do!

You'll never know how much stress this has saved me!!!

Kathi said...

Beautiful!! I LOVE your dress...where is it from??

Cari said...

This must be Destin? I vacationed there in 2002, 2003 and 2004. It's so beautiful!
