gang perry hits the beach

ok...a quick post since it's been ages.

recently i keep hearing behind me, "i'm free to do what i want, any ol' time." that's how i feel since schools out - no more teaching. i've only put on makeup for church, i've only fixed my hair for church and an occasional dinner with family but i'm excited to not have to be "on" everyday for a group of 30 teenagers. jack's let me sleep in a couple of times...one time until 10am...i'm sure i was up until 3am that night but still...sleeping until 10am...glorious!

more appropriately, i'm sure that theme song is jackson's since he thinks he's pretty much in control of all things around him.

so here's our gang at the beach:annie perry, member of gang perry, in her adorable state. in about 5 hours she will start the gang perry yelling, lasting quite sometime which made her hoarse the next day.
jackson perry, member of gang perry, flashes our gang sign at the beach. he also is sporting his dragon tatoo, a marking of gang perry. he did look funny with this tatoo on his stomach at the beach. thankfully the other 2 had faded and we were just left with this one. and thankfully annie wears a one piece or you'd get to see her colorful stomach also.

here is the entire gang. check out how annie is using my hair as reigns to keep from falling backwards. it hurt.
believe it or not...this is the best picture we got as a family. it was right before we left so the kiddos were not cooperative at all...i'm sure it would have been the same story right when we got there or even half way through our visit. needless to say, this ones out of the running for our christmas picture.

we had so much fun at the beach...it was breezy and the time flew by! the kids made it pretty easy because they are somewhat afraid of the water so they'd run to the edge, never go past ankle deep water and run back, over and over. we'll head back again soon!
