Beach Squirrels

I have always adored squirrels. I think they are probably one of the cutest little creatures on earth. On Saturday, we headed down to Anna Maria Island to spend the day at our friends' beach house. A precious little gang of squirrels eagerly greeted us at the house and insisted that we feed them peanuts.

We spent the day grilling, laying on the beach, playing games, and swimming in the cool Gulf water. No oil here yet, thank goodness. Being at a beach house for the day totally spoiled me. I desperately want one now. As we lounged in the shade, I imagined myself having my morning coffee on the balcony and then going for a run along the shore. I'm pretty much obsessed now. This whole doctor thing had better work out, right?

Love the swimsuit and hat!! Can you let me know where you purchased it? I am going away this weekend for Memorial Day and it would be perfect.

I am DYING to get to the beach. So much so, I'm seriously considering a road trip to Gulf Shores on Sunday to enjoy the beach just for a day since we can't get to destin anytime soon (well we could, but my hubby isn't biting)

Color me jealous!

ps- where did you get your swimsuit? It's SO CUTE! I want one!!!!!

The squirrels around here would never be that tame to take food out of your hand. These pics are so cute!

I’m glad you had a nice and relaxing weekend. It looks beautiful and I also dream of having a beach house someday. I love being near the water. The photo of you ladies on the beach is lovely and you look fantastic.
