Vacation + Good Eats


If you happen to follow my tweets then I am sure you quickly realized I was on our family vacation. We go to Rosemary Beach Florida a couple times a year and it has really become quite the tradition over the past 6 years or so. Although we cook most nights it never fails that we eat at the Pizza Bar in Seaside a few times. Yes, it's that good! Not only is the food divine, but so is the atmosphere...


We eat out on the beach side patio every time.


I get the focaccia bread topped with mozzarella and mushrooms.




The Mr. gets the sausage something or other...




The table always ends up looking like this...


It's pure bliss really. If you would like to see some of our favorite family photos you can see them on my Mr's site, here. They may be my favorite yet.

* Also while away I stepped back from my emails/blogging. I tried to catch up over the weekend. If you sent one and I did not reply please email me again. I may have gotten delete happy.

This looks wonderful. We've been going to Indian Shores, Anna Maria Island and other spots along the Gulf Coast for the past 3 years and love love love it. Now we might need to visit Seaside (The Truman Storey setting I believe?) and Rosemary Beach as it looks so wonderful.

You are having a delightful vacation.
The children sure look like they are having a blast.
The beauty of coming from family of photographers-- gorgeous pictures everytime. Your children are too cute.

Susie (So Blessed) said...

Great photos of your sweet family, Paula. I went over to Kellen's site and looked at them all...they are wonderful. The beach is such a relaxing place...I love it there. I go with a group of high school friends to Seaside every year for Martin Luther King weekend and it is always a highlight of my year. I love walking around taking pictures of the white picket fences, alleyways and of course, the beach! Haven't tried the pizza place, but might just do that this year!
