Fourth of July weekend never looked so good.
I'm so glad we live near the beach! And many gorgeous beaches at that. This one was 2 1/2 hours away, but worth every minute in the car to get there. The weather was perfect (85 degrees), the accommodations amazing (2 bedroom villa at The Marriot's Ocean Front Resort-- complete with a incredible military discount that made the very pricey room actually affordable!!!), the beach right outside, and the only draw back was that I was fighting off a chest cold. But really, it was an amazing weekend. I still cannot believe how warm the ocean water was, or how much fun it was for the boys to splash and play.
A taste of heaven for this beach loving gal. Praise our wonderful Creator for His incredible handiwork!!
