Even though I stamped "The Guerras" on this photo...these are really Nagels.  I just put the stamp on all my pics.  :) (p.s.- for those of you who don't know, this is Chad's sister that was my mission comp and that I'm forever indebted to for setting us up!)

Have you ever played this game?  So fun!  My sister Sheena introduced it to me and I introduced it to the Guerras.   It's always funnest when you have a couple of really bad drawers or confused participants (initially we began playing with Chad's grandma Smith...some of our best games.  She kept it very interesting!).

The directions:  begin with a phrase...after a minute everyone passes and draws the phrase they receive...pass again after a minute and write what you think you see from that next person's paper...etc, etc.  Below were some of our favorites!

(begins "All the Single Ladies"...gets lost somewhere with mom's rendition of Beyonce on sheet #4...who I thought looked like that little creature off of "Flight of the Navigator" (anyone?) sampling perfume...ends "nuts & jelly woman".

(begins: "I'm BAD, I'm bad, I'm really really bad...I believe mom drew the lovely people pictured on sheet #2 which looked to me like garbage pale kids (anyone remember them from the 80's??)...ends with "hear no evil, speak no evil, see no evil")

(begins- "Any man of mine better be proud of me"...changes to a little dosie doe...at which my brother in law Ben draws some daisies (needless to say, he's not a cowboy and doesn't do much country dancing).

I really wanted to take some family pictures by this pier.  A little sunny...a little bit of squinting...but what a beautiful pier!

Ever seen "The Truman Show"?  It was filmed in Seaside, this cute little town not far from us.  So cute!  However, I only managed to get pictures of the gelato.  It was hot & I got a little lazy. :)

And I'll leave you with this beautiful sunset  (this was the night of the lunar eclipse).

Panama City Beach- part one

Okay, I have a gazillion pictures and had a hard time deciding which ones to put up, so I'm just gonna have to do 2 large posts about our recent trip to Panama City.  This is part one.

First, we flew into Atlanta.  We got to visit Chad's uncle and aunt (who I'd never met).  They were wonderful and it was fun to meet and visit with them.

Then we attended Chad's cousin Chelsey's wedding reception.  Gorgeous!  One of the most beautiful receptions I've ever attended. Beautiful landscaping, big white tent, fabulous food and beautiful couple!  The kind of reception I always dream of photographing.  Ironically, this is one of the only pictures I got there.  haha

Then, after going to church Sunday morning, we made the drive to Panama city.  (Just a shot of aunt Brittany entertaining Liam with Winnie the Pooh...such a good aunt!)

...and a little pitstop at Publix grocery store.  Aunt Brittany working her magic with the kids again.
