{pretty, happy, funny, real}...Happiness at the Beach in February

round button chicken

Much as I complain about the Florida weather, and how much I miss the seasons and colder temperatures...one thing I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE is that when February rolls around and two of my children have birthdays, we can celebrate outdoors...even at the beach! How fun! Generally I'm not a fan of February birthdays. They seem to come right on the heels of Christmas, oftentimes are during Lent and when we lived up North..too cold to have a party outdoors. 
However..9 months before February is June...which is the end of the school year...which was celebration-worthy when your husband was a teacher.  Hence...baby born in February.

See my 2 youngest pretty girls and the beautiful, blue Gulf ocean!

 Happiness is playing with your best friend at the beach..in February. Also, linking this one up with Clan Donaldson for Theme Thursday.

 Okay, okay..so this one is not at the beach. But, it's a funny onesie she's wearing. I always feel a bit weird dressing her in that...like it's vain and ignorant all at the same time.

 I think John is screaming something like Don't put me down, don't put me down, the water is FREEZING. The water was really, really cold..for Fl anyway. You go to the beach in August here and it's like stepping into a warm bath..but in February..the water is COLD.

Now, go see Like Mother, Like Daughter for more PHFR.

  3. Love the beach and would love it more if I had FL weather!

    That shirt is so cute, we have things like that, and every time my kid wears one, I feel I have to say "IT WAS A GIFT!"

  4. Great capture of the feel of the Gulf. Looks like a great party! We lived on the Gulf for fours years, I will never stop missing it.

  5. As a fellow beach goer in February (although on the other side in Cali) I enjoyed seeing your photos! You have a lovely family. :-)

  6. So much fun! The photos on this page are such a strong argument for moving to Florida, especially with the 6 inches of snow here in Wisconsin. Happy birthday to your two February children. :)

  8. One time my mother-in-law saw my daughter in a similar onesie to Elsa's and see said, "What is with all these baby clothes about loving mommy?!" As if there is some sort of conspiracy to get kids to love their moms. Only my mother-in-law...
