Wordful Wednesday-The LAST Florida Vacation post

Wordful Wednesday is like Wordless Wednesday, only WITH words. It’s for those of us that can’t contain the chatter, but in a good way. More info. in my tabber box titled WW on the right. Thank you for playing along!

I can almost hear them.  All the “it’s about time” thoughts.  I know that I’ve spent MORE than a month of Wednesday’s on my Florida vacation, and I appreciate your patience with me as I drag it on and on, but really, my vacation is important to me, so I HAD to.  🙂

I couldn’t not.

So, for this edition of Wordful Wednesday, I’m wrapping up my Florida vacation posts with some of my favorite shots of the trip because they star my children.  These photos were all taken on Captiva Island in the late morning.  It was really beautiful with the fog hanging over the beach.

We really did have the type of vacation that memories are made of!

{My husband is a sand sculpting wizard!}

See you next week for another edition of Wordful Wednesday.  And I promise, it won’t have anything to do with Florida.  🙂

Don’t forget to hop on over to my co-host  Amanda’s place to see what she has to be Wordful about today.

  35. great pictures Angie. makes me want to go on a vacation right now. seriously, right this minute. i could really use one 😉

  36. I think the gator sand sculpture is my favorite thing from all of your pictures that you’ve shown the past few weeks.

  37. Great shots Angie.
    I love the sculpture at the end.
    You’re husband is a pro.
    Your kids are beautiful.

  38. Gorgeous photos, mama! That crocodile sand sculpture ROCKS! Some of our best family memories happened on those same beaches. We love Sanibel and Captiva Island. I can’t wait to go back again this summer.

  39. Holy wow your oldest is gorgeous! And not that the alligator is more gorgeous or anything but… ??? SRSLY?? We make blobs and call them castles. WOW.

  40. Wow that sand sculpture is amazing!!

  41. I am so jealous!!!

  42. Ok. Be honest. Did your husband practice sculpting wildlife in the backyard for WEEKS before your vacation? I can only seem to manage to build a lopsided, bucket shaped castle!
    Love your photos, a sunny reminder that good weather is coming!

  43. Beautiful pictures. A memory making vacation is worth a few extra posts!!

  44. Angie, you and hubby both do good work. The beautiful kids. The exquisite photos. And that priceless gator.

  45. ahhhhh, i could totally go for a beach vacation about now! 🙂 lovely photos – you’ve got skilz for capturing great moments!


  46. aww, no more florida?
    take me away somewhere else then!!!
    would love for you to check out my WW this week

  47. Sanibel is now on my list of must-visit places. Since you won’t pack me in your suitcase, and that would be unfair to my hubby and kids anyway, I guess we’ll have to get ourselves there!

    Great pics of your kiddos. Love the black & white.


  48. Oh, Sanibel. I miss it there! And, I seriously can’t ever stand how gorgeous your family is. It should be illegal.

  49. *sighs* I really, really miss the beach.

    I think we need to set our sights on FL for a family vacation in a couple of years.

  50. sigh… it looks like heaven. Love the photos. Love Grace’s freckles. LOVE Jeff’s crocodile. He is good.

  51. I loved the pictures but they seemed to be missing something really important.

    Oh, yeah. Me.

  52. I can never get enough beach pics. Love them! And that alligator??? Holy cow!

  53. Ah, the beach! Nothing better than the beach, in my opinion! That croc is great!

  54. Whoa! Your hubby made that alligator? Amazing….And your kids are beautiful girl, just like their mama. I’m so glad we met each other at BBCSD. You are my one coolest chick that stands out. Looking forward in keeping up with your blog!


  55. the alligator was AWSOME!

  56. WOW those photos are beautiful and that alligator is amazing!!!
