Our Week at the Beach in Pictures (and a few words)




We had an AWESOME week at the beach this past week. Emma Claire is still there until Sunday with my dear friend, Ashley, and SIL Ellen. I miss her alot, but I know she is having a blast {though they say she is not missing me a bit =( } I think she gets that from her mommy!!! The weather couldn't have been better, the children were great (other than Wilson waking up and staying up b/w 4:30-5:00 am EVERY morning - but that's another post entirely). As you can see in the pictures, the water was clear and as smooth as glass the first 3 days, but then overnight turned very rough - but good times were had - Emma Claire loved the little hermit crabs - I bet we caught 100 of them! All of the children played well together (all 9 of them at one point), had a great time, as did the adults - thanks to our ground floor, right on the pool condo. It worked out perfectly - we could let the babies sleep or sit in their exersaucers inside while we watched the big kids out at the pool - our patio was 3 feet from our chairs!!! I'm so very thankful for such wonderful family and friends to spend good times with!

You are so on top of things - I mean, I would never think about pictures of the kids on the beach in Christmas outfits! Beautiful! Hope you use those for Christmas cards. I may have to steal your idea - we may go to the beach next week!

What a fun time! Love the family photo - is that your Christmas card photo? It's beautiful.

I had to laugh about the exersaucer photo! I remember the days well. We would start off at the beginning of our trip toting everything "baby" we owned to the beach - we looked like a traveling Babies R Us store. By the end of the trip, we just took the baby, a bottle and a few diapers to the beach! We were too tired to lug anything else! Enjoy those times. I sure do miss them (and the laughs that went with them).
