(Almost) Wordless Wednesday: Missing Miss M

This past weekend, M's Memaw took her to Myrtle Beach, SC! My mother-in-law has started taking her grand-babies on solo-vacations in order to spend one on one time with them. This year was M's turn and I missed her... I missed her a lot! It was good getting to hangout with just Peanut, but I felt like something was off all four days! When she came home, she was so excited to share all of her adventures. One of her favorites was going on the Sky Wheel- twice!! Don't worry about her lack of seat belt- it is fully enclosed.

Even if you can't see her face in it, I am still in love with this picture.

To my mother-in-law...thanks for spoiling our girl! 
She had a blast and I can't wait to see where Peanut decides to go!


Have you ever been on a ferris wheel or sky wheel?

  21. I love the unconditional love the most. I also like finding random child items in my purse, like Matchbox cars, hair barrettes, lollipops and temporary tattoos. When I pull one of those items out of my purse I always smile.

  24. Oh my goodness... so many! One of my favorites is watching them laugh and interact with one another and then another is hearing them turn into comedians.. just like their mama.
