My favorite place on earth!!!

Ok...listen real carefully.....can you hear it???? Its the ocean....its just beautiful sounding and its right outside my balcony!!! Oh, how I love this sound!



And, here are my 4 favorite people heading out to the beach....I went too, but I had to take the picture bc that's what momma's do!!!



And, here's my baby playing in the pool.....



And, because girls love to see where you are staying and want to know how the condo is....here are 2 pictures....and, y'all we ADORE this condo....it is F-U-N!!!!






Ok, that's enough of this post. I just love y'all and wish I could call every single one of you and ask if you can hear the ocean. Ya see, the ocean brings out the pure kid in me and the full grownup in me. How in the world did God create this masterpiece??? He's utterly amazing. I can't wait to hear something from Him while I'm hear.

I think I'll go grab my Bible and sit on the balcony and spend some time with Him.

The other kids are gone. :)

More meaningless pictures to come later. Have a great day!
Blessings~

How fun!!!....and yes, I can hear it! I am totally a 'beach girl'!!I am so glad you posted some pics already!! I was thinking about you earlier today!! Wondering what you guys were doing down there today!!

Tanja said...

Your condo looks great. If you feel comfortable doing so, share what beach are you at and what condo. We have three munchkins, too, and as they grow, it gets harder to make hotel space work. Our next vacation is going to be to the Outer Banks, and we're taking our camper, so no condo needed, but I'm always on the look out. Enjoy the sun! Oh, one more thing... the picture of you and your blog friend... so happy to put a face to your name. :-)

Earen said...

Oh, how wonderful that looks! I hope you're having a wonderful, wonderful time!!

Looks like fun! There's nothing like spending time with God when you are surrounded by His amazing works of art.

Denise said...

Looks like so much fun sweetie. I love the ocean. Your condo is awesome. Have a great time. I love you.

MelanieJoy said...

Well, my ears are still ringing from the kido's at work...hopefully the sound effects of your beautiful beach will kick in soon =) Your beach spot looks so relaxing! Our Spring break is next week!!!
Have a wonderful time!!

Lindsee said...

Ummm..can I say jealous?!!! I know y'all are having an absolute blast. Your condo looks very similar (at least the layout) to the one I stayed in last summer. That would be so ironic!

Go, enjoy your precious family time in the sun!

Love ya, sweet Fran!!

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
I am so trying not to be jealous over here on a heating pad! Yes, I am still on a heating pad for Spring Break. I can't even spring clean much less break. The roar of the ocean is my absolute favorite place to get away. You are so right! Stop and listen and hear HIS voice saying to you a verse you incredibly love and beautifully live out---you are His treasured possession! It was in our reading again today---woohoo, that's for you! Hope you
savor the moments and
listen to Love's Voice
with sand and sunrises and surf and seashells and a spring break that draws you and your family closer to HIM and each other.
Treat them all well.

What a beautiful place! I can almost hear those waves! I'm so happy for you to be able to get away with your precious family! Thank you for sharing your pictures. I think I will go put on some sunscreen and pretend I'll need it. I love the smell of it, so it might just work to change this cloudy Michigan weather to sunshine! Have a great time, Fran!
We love you!

Joanne said...

How wonderful! I pray that the five of you are making memories to last a lifetime. Wish I could be there sitting beside you with my toes in the sand.

Julie said...

It reminds me of the beach we went to in Alabama, I am wondering if you are in the panhandle.

I hope you are having a wonderful time.

Many blessings,
Julie

Darla said...

The Ocean!!! my most favorite place at any season of my life, but I must confess when I am troubled, the ocean and my bible is all I need, and HE always talks to my heart there as i am always taken in by HIS majesty even more there! Great looking condo! thanks for the pics!

Kelly said...

Are you in Gulf Shores or Destin? Looks a lot like Gulf Shores to me. I'm so jealous! I love it there! Hope you are having a wonderful time with your family!!!!!

A Stone Gatherer said...

I wish I could hop through the computer and join you on that balcony! I promise to be real quiet and just listen to the waves and read my bible! Being near water is one of my God spots! I so wish I was downsouth! Enjoy your time! Glad I stopped by!

Profbaugh said...

Thanks! I got just a whiff of the ocean here in St. Louis. Enjoy your time and just soak in all the fun with your family.

Linda said...

I'm like Tanja--do you feel comfortable saying where the condo is? I mean what city.

I blog so you can get a glimpse into my life as wife, mom of 3 boys, and someone who simply wants to bless others along the way. Have fun and be sweet :)
