Summer Cruising with the Family ~ Part II

Summer Cruising with the Family ~ Part II

Thrift store shopping is a great way to save money during the year so we can spend it on fun things!  This summer for our family vacation we went on a cruise to Mexico.   It was wonderful to laugh and create memories together.

Thrifting is a major part of everyone’s wardrobe and most of the clothes in these pictures were purchased at Goodwill.  Believe me, it is always an adventure to shop with the girls, to see what they pick out and develop their own personal style.   Perfect summer attire is t-shirts / jean shorts and fairly easy to find at Goodwill.

Remember to always thrift with style and have fun doing it!

Conroe 4th of July Parade “It’s a Grand Old Flag”

4th of July Parade “It’s a Grand Old Flag”

Every year at Walden, on Lake Conroe, they host a “4th of July” parade that is so much fun for every age.

lake walden parade

Families decorate their vehicles, golf carts, bicycles, mopeds, roller blades and even themselves!  The parade winds its way through Walden and ends with a party and prizes at the Yacht Club.

My mother-in-law worked for a few weeks on their float, the theme was ”It’s a Grand Old Flag”

and they won … WINNER!

She puts so much work into this and I was so proud of her for being recognized.

She even dressed my husband up in red, white and blue!
