Few beach pics

Just a few pictures from our trip. We had such a good time (even with all the sicknesses going around.) I think all the sickness did make the kids a little more whiney than normal, but for the most part I think all the kids had a good time together. This year I think was a little more relaxed, we ate at "home" most of the time, which meant we could stay in our coverups most of the day and switch the kids from swimsuits, to tub, to PJs. The only negative to that was not getting the kiddos all cutesied up every night, but I think the more relaxed time and fellowship was worth it. Isabella loves pretty much all things at the beach, the sand, the water, the seashells, etc. Although, she is not exactly my little "fish" because she would prefer not to get her face wet. :) Amelia LOVED the sand, and after a couple days loved the water as well. She at first didn't want to get in the pool at all, screamed and pulled up her feet even if we tried to put her in, but then at the biggest pool, the kids could walk in, kind of like the ocean, minus the waves. So she felt like she was going at her own pace. The afternoon that I was sick, they had to run in after her because she decided maybe it would be fun to keep on walking. :) After that she wanted to go to the pool anytime she saw it and loved playing in the ocean.

Here's my sweet girls on the beach together, getting them to slow down and pose rather than ripping their cover ups off and running away is not easy. :)
I love this picture of Amelia and her cute little mischievious grin. Isn't she beautiful!!!!
The picture of Amelia above was when she was having so much fun running to the water, filling her bucket up and coming up and pouring the water on Noni's feet. She got the biggest kick out of doing this.



I don't know what they're laughing at..... maybe they're just showing their excitement for the BIG fish Garrett caught. (Inside joke)


And here's my beautiful little beach babe. She looks so grown up, I wish she'd slow down on growing up.





















And what did Mommy do.......

...oh yeah, nothing like relaxing on the beach. :)

DeAnna,
I just love the Cover-Ups!!! You did a wonderful job on them!!! And it looks like you all had fun. I can't wait until we take our trip to the beach in August. But we still have a couple of camping trips first.
