The GQ gymnastics team at St. Pete’s Beach in Florida
The new warm up jackets. It’s funny to me that gymnasts can’t wear earrings or nail polish. They are covered in chalk, wrapped up in sports tape, and spit in their hands. But when it comes to rhinestones, bring on the bling!!
Amy, Tori, Ashton, Maya, and Sammie
This was our favorite hang-out. A charming ocean-front grille where the kids could hunt for shells on the beach while the adults enjoyed live music, cold beer, and the yummiest fried oysters. I could pitch a tent here and live happily ever after.
Dave told Toby he would give him $5 to take off his shirt and join these nice men (strangers) at their table. I guess when you’re 11, 5 bucks is 5 bucks.
Daddy bought Sammie a cute, little sea turtle necklace at a nearby market.
Ashton, Scout, and Sammie
Toby spent hours creating sand sculptures. His works included two sea turtles, a whale, an octopus, and an Ethiopian merman.
Trey didn’t really understand what he was agreeing to here.
The girls gave Toby major deductions and said he needed to point his toes.
And then there was this.
Sammie and Ashton
A nice little souvenir :)
