Oh Happy Day

Well yesterday was hubby’s b-day and we had a full day of fun.  1st he opened his gifts. P1040716

Then we headed to the beach for the majority of the day and boy was it hooooot.  

Here is Brad and Bub playing in the surf


And then Me and Bub P1040732_thumb[29][1] ,what’s that you can’t see the picture, sorry about that, something must be wrong with the computer.  I thought the bathing suit I put on looked o.k. until I looked at the pictures….Reminder to self never wear that bathing suit to the beach ever again…

Well here is one where you can’t see my bathing suit and proof I was there….P1040730and a pic just becauseP1040736

we had some little crab friends near our beach set up running up and down the beach, Bub was trying to get one to come out of his hiding spot but he was all “not on your life little kid” …how rude.

And we saw a sail boat which was pretty close to shore so that was cool and there were Manta Ray’s swimming in the water and they were so neat, but my camera is not water proof so no pics of them :(


When we got home I whipped up a batch of cupcakes because I am Susie Homemaker and all…  While they were cooling I went to get cleaned up from the buckets of sand that accompanied me home and then frosted and decorated them, well sorta I had the wrong icing tip and although I could have remedied that issue, I did not feel like dirtying more dishes. They were supposed to be G’s for Georgia Bulldog’s, but ended up looking like swirls or 6’s… Oh well “You get what you get and you don’t pitch a fit” as my sons 1st grade teacher used to say.


One turned out o.k. though  P1040738

My parents came over and we ate pizza and they gave him the gifts they had brought and then we sang happy birthday…still working on Ginger singing, but she won’t cooperate..then we ate cupcakes and called it a day.

P1040744 What a fun Happy Birthday for Hubby :)


**Public Service Announcement***

0610091224-01To anyone from up north or from anywhere for that matter that wants to partake in the beach…please bring or rent a shade umbrella…I saw so many children and adults burnt to a crisp because they had no shade to escape from the suns rays.


  1. what a fun day. i think i will take your lead when editing my own swim suit pix... they are few though!

    so sorry about the blog troubles... i with i knew how to fix that.

  2. Looks like the perfect day! I wish the weather would get warmer so we can go to the beach, not that I would be caught dead in a bathing suit yet, but still! ha

    Still LOVE that kittie! I pet him every time I visit! haha

  3. That sure looked like a fun day at the beach. Which beach did you go to? Too bad about the photo not coming out. Yea you aren't fooling anyone, haha.

  4. Beach! I would love to go to a beach. I'll be settling for the public pool. At least it's water and it's cool. But my bikini days are long over. You should keep wearing yours as long as you can. Me? I'm partial to tankinis. Blessings, SusanD

  5. Seriously did not realize you could click on that tiny pic and see me in my bathing is fixed now so ya'll don't need to go running from my blog anymore ;)

  6. Okay, here's a bathing suit chuckle for you... One day during our beach vacation two years ago, I went down to the beach, took off my cover-up and realized that I had left my underwear on when I had put on my suit! Glad we were just with some old college friends! I didn't feel like walking back to the house, so I just tucked my skivvies into my suit and sat on the beach until lunch time.

    Looks like you had a fun day!

  7. looks like a fun day, and your hubby is so blessed to have susie homemaker in tha house! i laughed when you wrote that. i wish we lived close to a beach. :(

  8. Looks like a wonderful day, and I think he was probably thrilled with the cupcakes!

  9. Your photos of the beach make me want to go soooooo bad!
    Sounds like your hubby had an awesome birthday! :)

  10. Sounds like a perfect way to spend a birthday. Mine is always in February which happens to be the coldest month here in NJ! No beach for me.

    I also have that same problem with photos whenever I'm in a bathing suit. For some reason, they just don't ever seem to come out (he he!)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog...I had fun over here and will be back for sure!
