Travel Tuesdays ~ Turquoise waters

When we started planning our trip to the beach for this year, we knew we wanted a 'family photo'.
This is not as simple as it sounds.
We were coming from London, and Boston, from Charlotte, and Birmingham ~ to the Alabama beach coast. To get everyone there at the same time is a huge accomplishment.
So we started by spreading the word . . . the color for 2012 is Turquoise.

Getting everyone to look in the same direction is more of a challenge.

If you have ever done photos on the beach . . . it is a blast.
Sunset at 7?
Gather at 6:30. (with red solo cups in hand)
 Everyone smile . . . and just hope that the baby smiles too!
We were lucky enough to have friends to snap pictures . . . 4 cameras . . . and plenty of photos to choose from.
We laughed and had a fabulous time.
That's what memories are made of!
This gang gets a little bigger each year . . .

Precious Memories ~

I love turquoise and it sure looks great in the photos! We are at the beach all the time so we get many beach pics at sunset. Yesterday we were there bright and early so we could take our new puppy. You have a lovely family!

Best beach photos that your 'clan' (sorry, it does sound hillbilly-ish and I don' mean it that way) has posted. It's great how you can see the affection that everyone has for one another.

I"ve tried to take sunset photos of the kids on the beach. It wasn't all that much fun. Now I know why...no red Solo cup in hand.
