On our last night in Orlando last week, there was a rocket launch from Cape Canaveral. None of us would have had the slightest clue were it not for my dorky fiance who scours a dozen or so space sites a day because he’s a space geek like that. So we packed up the Lumpmobile—our uglier-than-sin rental car—and drove east to the coast.
But some pretty menacing storm clouds delayed the flight. So we waited.
And took photos, like we’re often wont to do.
Some scarier than others.
And we ran on the beach.
And played like we were kids again.
And jumped some more. Because jumping photos never get old.
Then when we got tired of that—or rather, our joints started to ache, as none of us are spring chickens these days—my sprightly sister turned the sand into her tapestry.
Scott’s “cage” says “Caution: Rabid Monkey.” Mine says “Resting Beauty.” Smart girl, she knows who to butter up.
Then, gave him some love, because let’s be honest, he puts up with way more from three crazy ladies than most men would.
In the end, the launch never happened, but that’s OK, because we (clearly) found ways to amuse ourselves otherwise. Happy Fourth of July (AKA Scott’s 35th birthday!) to you all!
Happy birthday SVV! I love the eyeball picture . . .super awesome!
Happy Birthday Scott! And a Happy 4th!
Glad you didn’t write Reba Sheba in the sand 🙂
aw. fun! loved these pics. jumpings pics NEVER get old. plus it always takes like 100 photos to get one to come out right!
OMG, it’s Scott’s birthday! Have a great day.
All that excitement simply because I know someone who was born on the same day too, as must half the world!
Btw, those are fun pictures.
Happy Fourthday Scott!
What incredible fun at the beach. Who need a rocket launch anyway. I love the jumping, and you both jump very well and high in the air. The beach art is also very fun.
Happy Birthday Scott!

Happy birthday, Scott! BTW, you and Kari get some serious air.

It looks like waiting can be fun.
This series is rweally good. You’ve captured the emotions and fun perfectly.
So much fun! Happy 4th!
Who needs a rocket launch when you’re having so much fun, eh? 🙂
I would have NEVER guessed Scott was 35!
We planned visit Fla. sometime this summer and Mike did the same thing, researched when a launch would be.
Lovely photos! I love the jumping shots!
I LOVE THAT DRESS!!!
Happy belated birthday Scott!
I love that Time Out photo! Her expression is priceless!

We always used to go to Cocoa Beach for a few days after our Disney World vacations. My parents claimed the needed a beach vacation to recover from vacation.
