By the Sea, By the Sea, By the Beautiful Sea...

DISCLAIMER: YES, I have put on a ton of weight in the last year and a half. I'm not at all happy about it. These pictures make me want to throw up and I've already shed a few tears over them. (Why do you think I'm so desperate to run that 5K in July. I just want to get back in shape.) In the meantime, please don't judge. And try to keep disparraging thoughts to yourself. I already know I'm the great white whale.

Other than that, enjoy the pictures of our day at the beach!

Ft. Lauderdale Beach

Setting up some shade.

Gideon seriously couldn't wait to get in the ocean!

Cami's in the best shape I've seen her in, in years. (All the swimming and walking and running will do that for you!)

And what a hottie she is in her new bathing suit!

Playing in the Atlantic!

The Munchkin loved playing in the waves. I swear that boy is part fish!

And he especially loved digging a big hole with Uncle "Bobo."

Lily Pie and her daddy!

He would sit in his hole and keep digging. Then run out and play in the surf, then go back and get in the hole again. He was having a great time!

Lily liked the hole too!

When your bum is this sandy, it's time to go home!

But we sure had fun!

Hope you know the baby powder trick for getting the sand off! It is a miracle!
Love the new family picture!

Don't worry about the disclaimer. I have also gained alot of weight and am not happy about it either so I know exactly how you feel. (I mean this sincerely, I am not trying to make light of your concerns.) You still are very pretty and are doing a great job being a Mom to your little boy! Good luck on your 5k. You are in better shape than I am, I don't think I could make it through. Maybe if I walked? :) I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
