Watercolor 2011

We just returned from the amazing city of Watercolor.  I had never heard of this place before, but let me just assure you, it is the cutest little beach town I've ever seen.  This place it so perfect that it's almost scary.  I decided to post alot of pics just to give you the full effect of this amazing town.  One of my personal favorite things about this place is that they have little vintage cruiser bikes all over the place.  One morning I woke up, rode my bike over to the coffee shop, read my Bible and a book and enjoyed a vanilla latte, did some shopping and then cruised on home.  Life here just seems very easy and slow.  This makes me want to get a little basket on my bike and bike over to the grocery store right now.

Our little family went with Jerimiah's mom (Edie), Dr. Faehnle and his sister and her little family.  James was entertained all week by his cousins Lucy and Christopher.  They all had a blast. 

Thanks so much Doc and Edie for a wonderful week.  We love ya!

This was the best little snow cone stand.  I'm a snow cone snob and this place was definitely above average. 
 Umm, I'm pretty sure the license plate on this amazing snow cone stand says Oklahoma.  Now I know why these were so amazing!

Are you starting to see how ridiculously cute this place is?  

I love these little fingers. 
I love this.  James is wearing some hand-me-downs from Christopher.  Most of the clothes that James wears are Christopher's.  I can't believe that Christopher is almost 6.  I remember when he was 9 months.  Oh how time goes by so fast. 
 Christopher was so excited that he played 18 holes of golf, pretty impressive for a 5 year old.  As soon as he got home he told James all about it.  James was pretty excited.  I know Christopher will be a great golf teacher for James some day. 

I can't take a picture of James any more without him charging my camera and touching my lens.  I have a million pictures like this and I love everyone of them.

This is one of his new little faces that he makes when he is really excited.  He usually makes it at Solie.
This is one of my favorite pics from the trip.  We had so much fun building this sand alligator.  The kids put some sea weed and shells on it to make it extra special.
Here is a little look at the town.  All the art work has inspired me.  It has been a while since I have had a chance to appreciate original art work.  I am hoping to do this more often. 

Ummm, yes please.  I will take them all.

I found a little community garden in the town square.  I LOVE this idea.  We did this when we lived in California and it was so nice to have fresh herbs whenever you needed them.  It also created a closer sense of community.  I am already trying to figure out how I can start a community garden in our neighborhood.  Maybe next year...

I am sitting here wishing I was sitting on the beach, eating a shrimp burrito from the Taco Bar, drinking a margarita, and riding one of these trendy little bikes to our beach house.  I miss being on beach time.  I may just have to adopt the slow paced mindset here in Texas.  Adios.
