We're Back!

Home again. Our week at the beach was great. I was not ready to leave. I could sit on beach and listen to the waves and read my book all day every day. However, I only got to steal an hour or two here and there on this trip, but I loved every second of it. The kiddos were great on the beach this year. They both loved the ocean and playing in the waves. Last year, AP hated the sand and wanted to be held the whole time and C was just beginning to conquer his fear of the "loud waves." They were definitely little water babies this time. AP got in the pool with just swimmies on and was able to float around by herself. And C started swimming on his own! He just took his swimmies off one afternoon, put his face down in the water, and swam across the pool! There is no stopping him now. We had good times with our friends and enjoyed trying new restaurants. My favorite meal was at The Back Porch. We really wanted to go to Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville and we tried twice, but the wait was 2 hours even at 5 o'clock. Maybe next time. We are busy this week with Vacation Bible School and lots of errands to run. Our VBS kick-off was today in church and it was a Hawaiian theme. It made me miss the beach even more!

That first photo is amazing! It would be beautiful as a painted photo on canvas.
We should all be so good at documenting our children's lives as you! What a gift for them.
