Seaside, Florida

We just returned from a week of vacation at Seaside, Florida and it was just great!! We are definitely having withdrawal pains on our first day back home.The only downside was that Stephanie was not able to join us as planned!! We missed you Steph. Unlike our airplane fiasco last year, everything went very smoothly and we arrived right on time. Below are pics of the first half of the week and some of the things that we did. Mostly, we just layed on the beach, ate lots of good food and played games or rode our bikes into Seaside at night. Hope you enjoy these pics (excuse the fuzzy ones - my lens kept fogging up). I will write about the second half of our week on my next post. On the way to the airport

Our little neighbors that greeted us when we got to our condo!

Yipppeeee!! What we have been waiting for!!

Mark arranged to have these chairs set up for us everyday while we were there!! Priceless!

Walking to Church on Sunday

The Seaside Interfaith Chapel

Words can't describe the beauty, yet simplicity of the inside of the building. When we walked inside, little children (vacationers) were handing out bulletins. The front of the bulletin read, "Our purpose and mission is to provide an environment for a meaningful, spiritual encounter with our Heavenly Father, sing a few songs and go to the beach!" Isn't that great???

During Praise and Worship, this darling little girl went to the front and just stood like a little statue next to the leader during all of the songs. It was priceless and reminded us of Jesus' words to "become like little children".

Kayaking in the Gulf

Hunting for seashells

The fruits of our labor!

Eating great food at one of our favorite places on Highway 30-A...Wild Olives

Seeing the beauty of the clouds.

Playing in the water!
