Once Again.....

Since Katie is on the mend and seems to be doing better every day we decided to still go to Florida this week. Obviously she and Jason will not be going but they didn't want us to miss it. We will be taking Zach too! I cannot wait to see how he likes the sand. We already know he will love the water but sometimes he doesn't like to walk on the ground without his shoes so we will see. He was so cute last year, eating handful after handful after handful of sand. It must have been delicious they way he gobbled it up! Hopefully he will have gotten his fill of sand last year and will just enjoy playing in it this year.

Once again I will leave you with pictures from past years so you can try and guess what our color scheme will be this year. :)

2008 (Zach was passed out by this point)

I know you will be waiting on the edge of your seat to find out! :) haha

We will miss you Jason and Katie!

Have a good time.
I'm not sure what you're wearing this year - I'll guess white & denim.

Keetha Broyles said...

I'm guessing some shade of blue (even into the aquas) this year.

Katie said...

I'm guessing blue or chocolate brown. I can't believe it's already been a year since the last picture...wow!

I'm glad Katie is doing so much better. It just makes my heart sing! Isn't that funny how love comes into your heart for someone you don't even know just by praying for them? I'm always amazed by that. And I'm so thankful for the blog world these days for giving us that opportunity.

I'm sure that Zach is going to have a ball on the beach this year! Even if he does eat a couple "sand"whiches... ;o) Y'all have fun!! (Take lots of pictures for all of us that are NOT at the beach...hahaha!)

Beav's Wife said...

Darlene said...

WOW has it already been a year???!? My guess is yellow or green. I bet Zach is going to have a blast on the beach this year. Each year as he is getting older he will have more and more fun!

Emily said...

I think blue!! Have fun!!!

Karyn said...

Great family pictures. Have a great time in my home state. Blessings!

Love beach pictures! So classy. Especially when you all match.

Alex and Jill said...

Ah, I hate that Katie & Jason can't go with you. :( Would you like to take me instead? ha!

Have a great time, girl! Looking forward to your family picture. :)

I love the black and white-looking forward to seeing what your family picks!

The Bunch Fam! said...

Hope you all have a wonderful week. We're jealous. Ben's hit the "Screaming in public/nervous breakdown if he's in the car for more than an hour" phase, so we're opting out of sand and surf this year. Take an extra stroll for us.

mrs boo radley said...

I totally remember seeing last year's picture in your post.

This year?

Yellow!

julie & joe said...

Have a wonderful time! My guess for this year's color is blue.

I hope Zach loves the sand!

Turqoise or yellow????

Southern Fried Gal said...

Glad Katie is doing better. Y'all have fun in FL. We'll miss you! My first thought was light blue as well. Can't wait to see!

Suzanne said...

Hey Shannon!
I haven't commented in awhile,but I have been checking the updates and I am glad to know Katie is doing better. I am sure she is very thankful to have such a wonderful family to help out in times like these! Glad to know she is on the mend!
My guess would be a blue/white theme!?! What part of Fl? I love the Destin area. I grew up in Charleston,SC but the beaches in Fl are so much better! Have fun!
Suzanne
P.S.-Watch out for sharks...I was in shallow water last year in Destin and one swam very close to the shore.

Jules from "The Roost" said...

I hope you have a wonderful time. I can't wait to see this year's photo. I am praying that Katie will get the rest she needs while you are gone.

Your family pictures are just TOO cute. I'm in love with that dress you were wearing in the last one!!

I know you will all have a great time, especially since you'll be celebrating Katie's recovery!

O...And I am guessing something in the blue or brown family! We are doing pictures with my friend Lindsey on the beach!!

Empty Nest Full Life said...

So glad Katie is home and doing well. Hope she gets some good rest this week. I think someone has already guessed denim and white, but that is my first guess, next maybe blue and khaki. We will see. Have a wonderful vacation. Jackie

Cari said...

I hope you're all having a great time!

Glitter and Bliss said...

Oh my goodness. I have been catching up on things, and I can't believe all that Katie has gone through. I am so sorry, but thrilled she is doing better. What a blessing for sure.... I hope you have a wonderful trip. Leslie

I remember this from last year! Have a great time! This year at the beach was the FIRST time EVER that my 3.5 year old agreed to touch the sand with his bare feet. LOL!
