Pink Saturday/VACATION!

My apologies in advance to Mimi & Bebe for posting a picture they consider less than flattering!

As tomorrow is our first official day of vacation, I think it's fitting to show this picture from the Flope Family Vacation circa 2007. After all, Miss Mimi Flope is wearing her pink shirt!
Every family is normal until you spend an hour with them and we are no exception. We have several idiosyncrisies--one of them is that we have many nicknames for each other. The year this picture was taken, Miss B's friend Miss L was able to accompany us for the week and we were treated to her incredible sense of humor. She fit right in with us and The Flope Family was born.
This year, we've decided to do a "staycation" of sorts instead of spending a week in "Up North" Michigan as we usually do. We're very excited that Miss L is joining us again! We are blessed to have our own pool, a hammock and a nice firepit so we'll make use of those. We plan to spend a day in Ohio at King's Island and will also have a morning of jet-skiing here locally.
So Happy Pink Saturday sure to check out Beverly's blog at http://http// for more PINK!

Leslie, Happy PS post. Love the pink shirt, and PS doesn't have to be frilly, just pink. You fill all the requirements. Have a wonderful vacation. Can't wait to see the pics when you come back. Country Hugs, Sherry

Happy Pink Saturday, Leslie! Enjoy your staycation! I spent many, many summers on vacation up north in Michigan - I was also a camp counselor in northern Michigan!

Happy Pink Saturday, Leslie.

I've been on staycation this week, and it has been wonderful.

Enjoy your week.

Another rainy and cloudy and dark weekend. I fear that summer is not coming to northern Michigan this year...sigh.

With that in mind, Pink Saturday is a day that cheers me up and allows me to share a wider world than my gloomy portion.

♥Thank you so much for participating this week because it made my day just a little brighter♥

Love that word staycation - I'd rather do a home vaca. than go away, but the rest of the family won't have it.

Thanks for stopping by The Old Parsonage. I just got back from vacation and am finally returning visits paid by kind friends.

Hi, Leslie,
Miss Mimi Flope is doing a good job of modeling that hot pink shirt. Sounds like you all have a lot of fun around your house! Thank you for visiting me at Bunny Cottage. Enjoy your weekend. Vicki
