Anna Maria Island revisited

Five summers ago we spent an incredible week with the Gaddy family on Anna Maria Island in Florida, and this year we revisited the vacation with equally incredible results. The family has grown since then, and Fletcher and Lola Gray were thrilled to have 2 little cousins around to play with all week. Grandmama and Grandaddy and their aunts and uncles spoiled them rotten, as they should. We spent one very hot and fun-filled day in Sea World, but mostly we lounged on the beach, swam in the pool, ate a lot and enjoyed the amazing Gulf sunsets each night. Lola was, predictably, a little fish – we could hardly get her out of the water to eat and sleep! Uncle Tripp taught her to dive and she has been practicing ever since. Oh! And the cousins all slept in Grandmama and Grandaddy’s room at night, which was a nice surprise after 5+ weeks of sleeping in close quarters!

  1. Great pictures! But there is a commercial for meat on your blog!

    • A commercial for MEAT? Seriously? I might have to spring for private hosting . . . I don’t see the ads from my view and have no control over them. 😦

  2. It’s a video selling Johnsonville Meats!

  3. Didn’t see the ad, but LOVED the pictures Ashley- gorgeous. especially the sunset ones. Looks like a wonderful end to your summer!

  4. Beautiful pics as always. The one of the 4 of you is great – hello Christmas card!
