Congratulations Dr. Captain Uncle Andrew!

It was a crazy, but fun week!  On Friday, we loaded up the Jeep and traveled about 9 hours to Mobile, AL to see Uncle Andrew graduate medical school.  Normally, it would not take this long, but I was not happy about the car ride, so we had to make a lot of stops.  Graduation was so cool (even though Daddy took me home halfway through the ceremony).  Not only did Uncle Andrew graduate medical school, but he was also promoted from Lieutenant to Captain in the Air Force!!!  AND he got an award for Most Outstanding Student in Emergency Medicine.  We are all so proud of him!  Sorry there are no pictures, but Mommy left her camera in the car. Can you believe that?!?  

To celebrate Uncle Andrew's accomplishment, we all went to the beach.  And when I mean all, I mean ALL!  Of course Daddy, Mommy, Grammy, Granddaddy, Uncle Andrew and Aunt Kelly came, but also Great Granddaddy, Aunt Watts, Uncle Greg, Cousin Kristin, Cousin Kari, and Aunt Kelly's parents came.  Wow, what a crew!!!

The first day at the beach was Mother's Day.  It was Mommy's first Mother's Day, so it was really special.  Daddy and I got Mommy a pearl bracelet because it is my birthstone.  Wasn't that sweet of us?!?  

In the morning, we lathered up in SPF 50 and headed to the beach.  Here is me in the sand
And then Mommy and Daddy wanted me to get in the ocean.  Ahhh, Mommy, I don't think so - this is COLD!!!
Even though they almost gave me frostbite, I still smiled for the family photo.  Aren't we a good looking family?
After staying at the beach for a little while, Mommy and Daddy took me to the pool to try out my new turtle float.
Ahhhhh, Mommy, this is MUCH more fun!  I think I will even pose for the camera!
I had SO much fun at the pool that Mommy and Daddy decided this is where we would spend the rest of our short stay in Sandestin ;)

Since it was Mother's Day, all of us kids got together and decided we wanted to take our Mother's out for dinner!  We went to the Red Bar and it was delicious!  After dinner, we took pictures of all the mommies.  Here is me with Mommy and Grammy.  3 generations!
Then we took another family photo!
We had SO much fun at the beach and spending time with all the family.  Sorry I don't have any pictures of the rest of the family, but don't worry, I will post them with I get them.  Plenty of pictures were taken - but I have to wait until people e-mail them to me ;0.  Aunt Kristin even took a movie of me playing on the bed (click HERE to see the video).  I loved playing with all the family and I think they enjoyed seeing me.  I will post pictures when I get them, I promise.  

Ok, gotta go take my nap because Mommy and Daddy are taking me to BBQ fest tonight!

Enjoyed seeing you is an understatement. Next time we're in the same room, I'm snatching you up and bringing you back to California with me! Then we can go to the beach every day of the year! (Though I warn you, it's even colder than the Gulf!)

PS: Great Uncle Greg came too. He mostly sat on the porch and read/smoked, so you might have missed him on your pool trips.

Thanks for making the trip down to see graduation. We enjoyed it and will do it again when you like car trips a little more.

A bath BEFORE barbeque fest? What are you thinking.
