Beautiful Life

Hey child up and go; A big world is out there waiting for us to live in every day. Outside you will find, there is love all around you; Takes you, makes you wanna' say; That it's a beautiful life and it's a beautiful world and it's a beautiful time to be here, to be here, to be here. -Fisher

No Vacancy!

  Hotel Gour

Breakfast served.... whenever {you people get out of bed}
Picnic lunches available {or optional, starve if you like}
2 course dinners most evenings {if I feel like cooking}

Popcorn and a movie possible

Close to the beach and shopping
Mere miles from Historic areas
{I will drag you to all these places if you come here}

Rooms, suites and mattresses on the floor are all options for your get away
{suite is just a word that means you get the bedroom with my husband's office in it...he'll be in there in the morning! And by rooms available....I probably mean that you get a mattress on the floor}
Semi-private baths available
{The word "private" is more of a suggestion here}

Book Early!
Because regardless of how unappealing this stay should sound.....we are over booked every summer!

And we wouldn't have it any other way.

I am sitting in a very quiet house.  Very quiet.  After spending the entire month of July booked to maximum capacity, it is a nice and welcome break before school starts.  Actually school will be a nice and welcome break from our crazy summer! 

From the beginning of July to the end of July Hotel Gour saw a total of 14 guests come and go!  We accommodated one sister and brother-in-law for 3 nights, another sister for 1 night, one niece and nephew for 4 weeks, another niece for 4 days and yet another niece for two weeks and 4 days, one friend and her daughter for 4 nights, another friend and her daughter for 9 nights, the daughter of a friend for 6 nights and two young friends of the kids for 1 night each!

You keeping up?

That means my Monster Van was put to good use this summer.  And that is dream come true!  Everyone in one vehicle while I drag them to beaches and historic places! 

Exhibit A:  Happy campers in my Monster Van! 

So, what did we do all summer with all this company? 

We spent a lot of time at the beach!
Because the beach is FREE!

Remember?  I like free!

Even the beach could not get Brooke off her phone.

But Brianna could.....for a moment at least!

We collected Sand dollars and shark's teeth.

And shells!

Casey had fun!

This is probably why Michelle and I get along so well.....we both love the beach!

Boogie girl!

Loves the beach like her mama!

We also played with starfish

And crabs!
It's always fun....if a little dangerous when we are around!





Life Lovin' Mia!

Lazy beach days are my favorite!
Stay tuned for more about our summer at Hotel Gour

Coming Soon:  Adoption update!

I'd like to reserve a room (mattress) every summer until... well, let's just say forever. Does forever work for you?
