I am so sorry about the passing of your dad. You must have really missed him this last weekend. I lost my mom a couple of weeks ago. I am happy for you that you still had a wonderful family trip, and found some great treasures too! Especially that mermaid!!

Such happy photos of your Dad and family. I know it must be so hard to not have him around. He's looking down on you all everyday! :)

Your trip photos are soo great!! What a FUN time!! All the vintage finds have me wanting to get out of the house for some time away from work!

My lil brother is hunting for a pop up camper for us all to work on as a sibling project! Cannot wait! We just painted his jeep (which is lifted onto monster truck tires) camouflage with gold stars on each door and huge one on the hood. it looks amazing!! So all we need is that pop up...and it is off to the camp ground for us all!! :) Hopefully by summer's end!!

Anyhoo...wanted to pop in and say hi!!

Happy Summer!!
xoxo Jenny

I sent you a message on the message board & also email as far as Dinner of Saturday with all the other mermaids... SOUNDS WONDERFUL!!! Thanks for putting this together. It is getting closer & I am getting excited.
