Folly Beach 2013

Trying to decide how to share seven days and over one thousand pictures is kind of tricky. It gets complicated. I want to include everything because everything was so awesome. Well, not everything. There was one night while at Folly where I was sure I had either eaten bad seafood or was coming down with the stomach bug. Not so awesome. And while including every single picture and every single memory sounds nice in theory, it would take days and days to do so and the bottom line is that no one really wants to see that many pictures or hear that many stories anyway. Maybe my family, but not everyone. Therefore, choosing just the right ones to share is hard work. I don't want to leave anything or anyone out. But, here's my best attempt. My best attempt at  remembering Folly Beach 2013. Without further adieu, here are my favorite photos, some with captions.
Our ride down. And yes, we did pack everything except for the kitchen sink.
Lola ALWAYS gets to travel with us. Unfortunately, Cash does not. It breaks our hearts, but he does get some quality time with lots of his doggie friends.
Just minutes after arriving at the beach MK convinced her Daddy it was time for a beach walk.
Mama Jean and her Costas. Yes, my grandma is cooler than your grandma.
Hunter driving the boat with his uncles.
Best. Margaritas. Ever. I used this recipe and they were delish.
Me and my little lovies.
This picture melts my heart.
I have to give photo credit to my mom for this picture. PRECIOUS!
My sweet Uncle Jimmy and MK
Fun with Uncle Owens.
Daddy, aka Stud Muffin.
No caption necessary.
My beautiful Momma.
Fun times at the Point. 
Love this picture.
Mama Jean cruising on the boat. This picture was taken pre-rain wash out. 
My sweet girl holding a fish.
Owens + vaccuum = shocking.
Crazy Will kayaking.
Poor Hunter was not used to our all day excursions. 
Sweet Dippin and Baby H. She and Owens have their big 20 week appointment coming up. While they are not finding out the gender, I'm still excited to see something on the screen that really looks like a baby! 
Me and my girl.
I love her. 
Sweet girl.
Love him.
Seafood Night #2
That face!
Uncle Corky fishing.
Picture perfect.
So beautiful!
This was probably a private conversation that I interrupted. Actually, they were probably just talking about work or boats or seashells.
Our girl and her boogie board. She had THE best time!
Sweet Jillian.
Just relaxing and enjoying Folly Beach.
Muscle Man
Fun times with Leigh Anne
Does it get any better?
Most. Fun. Ever. Who cares if my body hurt for two days afterward?
Look at those smiles.
Mammie and Dippin.
Two peas in a pod.
Uncle Lewis and his kayak.
If any of you have made it this far, THANK YOU. I know you probably think that you've seen all 1368 of our beach photos, but actually it was only fifty. Fifty of my favorites. 

I say this every year, but this is a trip that means so much to me and it's one I never take for granted. It's good for the heart and soul and tan lines. Already thinking and planning for next year!

Of course, it goes without saying, but I love the family beach pictures...wish my family had this bond and vacations together...what memories you'll ALWAYS have from these special beach times. You've given me a smile to carry me through my day and beyond. :) Much Love to all of you!
