Sunday Snaps!

Well, here we are on another weekend.  I hope you are all having a relaxing time wherever you are.  Today, for my Sunday Snaps feature, I thought I would share with you some photos of Ruby Violet and her day at the beach.  It was one of those wonderful days, and doesn't the beach look stunning! 




As you can see, she was having such a fun time!

I can't get over how quickly she is growing!

Hi Diane,
Ruby Violet seems to have inherited her Grandmother's zest for life! What a precious little lady...I love where she has her face in the sand, why she is getting everything she can out of the beach!

Beautiful Ruby Violet and Beautiful Grandmother...a love for the ages!

Hugs~

What a gorgeopus little Lovebug she is and clearly thoroughly enjoying herself, even kissing the sand :) Oh, to see the world through the eyes of a much loved and precious child! What a blessed Granny you are to have her in your life and what a fortunate little Angel she is to have such a special Granny in hers! Marvellous pictures!!!

Mona - thank you for popping by. It was one of those rare, beautiful balmy days here in England!!

Claudia - Thank you. No go and enjoy your vacation! I have mentioned your giveaway on my facebook page (Southhams Darling) and I am writing about it in my post tomorrow.

Orchid - Oh, I do hope that the humidity drops for you soon. Not very pleasant I would imagine! I'm afraid that I'm not talented at all, especially when you see what all our other bloggy friends seem to get up to, making all sorts of things !

Sush - thank you, as always, for your sweet comments. Yes, that was a funny one, wasn't it, when she appeared to be either, saying her prayers, or kissing the sand!! Hugs.

Desiree - thank you my friend for your lovely comments. Yes, I am so fortunate and blessed to have all three of my grandchildren in my life. Believe me, I do count my blessings every day! Hope all your little doggies are doing well.

Dizzy C - thank you so much for popping over and becoming my latest Follower. No, I can't believe we missed each other either! But, thanks to that little mynx Carol, we have been brought together!

lyndylou - thank you. Yes, I adore being by the sea as well. We are so lucky living we are do. Hope you're having a lovely sunny and warm weekend over there in Italy. I'm saying nothing!! LOL!

Look at that happy and gorgeous face! I bet she warms your heart just thinking of her. I also bet you are just the sweetest and most loving grandma in the whole world to your granddaughter!

Thanks for sharing these beautiful snaps.

Take care and best wishes for a wonderful week!

These are precious moments, aren't they?
Wait until she is 20 and then embarrass her in front of her new boyfriend with them- that's what my mother did! Actually, she is so ultra cute - it wouldn't matter if you showed them off when she is older.
Beautiful day and beautiful photos. And a beautiful Ruby!

EvaMarie Sa said...

Lovely pictures - she looks so happy to run around there. Ruby is very cute!
Enjoy your Sunday, my friend.

Greetings from a windy and cloudy Dublin :-)

lyndylou - Sorry, that should have been up there in Elgin, not over there in Italy!!! DOH! I confused you for a moment with LindyLouMac in Italy!! Blame my age! LOL!

Duncan - lovely to see you here today. I hope that means that you are feeling much better! Yes, beach photos are great, although mine could never come up to your standard I'm afraid!!

Natasha in Oz - hi there my friend. Good to see you today! I know that I am the luckiest grandma in the world!! Hope all is well with you and your family.

Carol - hallo leetle friend. So kind of you to pop over to see me today! Hope you slept better last night. Yes, these are precious moments indeed, as they grow away far too quickly!

EvaMarie - thank you! Well, that sunshine didn't last very long, did it?! Good job I took advantage of it during the day that it was here! Very windy, cloudy & showery here today as well.

PencilGirl said...

Beautiful pictures!! Ruby is soooooo cute!! :D I love how much fun she's having.. :) :)

kneesandpaws said...

What a darling Ruby Violet is...I only wish I could hear her sweet voice to go along with the photos. What a blessing to have beautiful weather for enjoying the beach. It reminds me to make plans to take my family to coast before summer's end. thank you also for visiting me during my busy week of teaching...there wasn't time for blog reading at all! I also appreciate your supportive comments. You are a very inspiring friend.

Dear One, you have captured precious moments, to keep you warm, in the cold of winter winds. :-)

Shady Del Knight said...

Thisisme, Ruby Violet is a precious gift to the world! I pray that the joyful smile we see in these pictures will remain on her face for the rest of her life. Your new fonts and color scheme make your blog easier to read, dear friend!

Aw she looks so cute in her little outfit and looks like she really is having a ball. The beach looks wonderful, but what have you done with all the people? Thanks for your lovely comments, yes I will be using the jam jar idea a lot, it really is most effective, yet simple. Speak soon, have a lovely day, love Linda x

Mynx said...

Such a cutie. Thanks for sharing

Pat MacKenzie said...

What a precious little girl - I love her name. It looks like the beach goes on forever.

Jenny Woolf said...

How cute! She is a happy little girl!

Thisisme. said...

PencilGirl - hallo! Lovely to see you again, and thank you so much for your comment. Hope all is well with you.

kneesandpaws - Ruby is just 18 months old, so she is not actually talking as yet. She just makes this funny little noise whenever she wants something, although if we mention food, she is always able to nod her head vigorously! LOL! Thank you for your lovely comment my friend.

Aunt Amelia's Attic - loved your comment today my friend! When it is winter time, I shall do as you suggested, and take out these photos to warm my heart! Hope you are having a lovely weekend.

Shady - hallo dear friend. I thought you might enjoy these photos today of little Ruby! Also, I am so pleased to know that my blog is now easier to read!

flowers on my table - the beaches around here are usually pretty quiet until the school children break up! My daughter loves going to this particular beach, which is not at all commercialized. In fact, there is nothing there at all! Have a good week my friend.

Mynx - thank you, and it is so lovely to have you visit today!

Pat - happy Sunday to you, and thank you for coming across to see me. Yes, she is a cutie and it is a gorgeous, sandy beach not far from here.

Jenny Woolf - hi there! Thank you so much for popping over to see me today. Always nice to see new names and faces.

Odie Langley said...

She sure is a cutie and had me wondering what was going on with the picture of her face down on the sand. You can tell when a child is enjoying themselves outside because they are wearing part of the outside like she was. Lovely pictures.

becca said...

Bouncin' Barb said...

That quote could not be ant truer! She's so precious and obviously loves the beach! Awesome!!!!

I can tell by these photos Ruby is brave and adventurous. It is wonderful to see the world through the eyes of children. Beautiful pictures!

Chatty Crone said...

She is soooooooooooooo precious - blessed you!

Thisisme. said...

Kristina - hi there. Gosh, you fooled me today with a different profile piccie - very nice by the way! I actually clicked on your photo to make sure that it was THE Kristina! Hope all your exciting ventures are going well for you my friend, and thank you for popping across to comment.

Belle - actually, she is very adventurous. Whether it's having an older brother, I don't know, but she will just go charging in, with no fear whatsoever! You have to have eyes in the back of your head!

Chatty - Blessed indeed, my friend, and every single day I count my blessings and thank the Lord for my healthy family.
