Beach Trip 2008

Last weekend we all piled in to a house my Dad and his wife rented - us, my sister & her family and my Dad & Georgia. We had such a wonderfully relaxing time! Lynette asked me what all we did and I was hard-pressed to come up with any specific answer. LOL "Umm . . . went down to the beach a couple times . . . hung out and talked . . . uhh yeah, that's about it . . . "

Canaan and Caris enjoying the sand

It really wasn't super warm out but the kids didn't mind

I love seeing my Dad play with my kids. He has an honorary doctorate in play.

Malachi and Graham weren't afraid to get in the COLD water. My Dad said next year we should rent wetsuits.

We walked a loooong way down the beach, and the whole way back
my Dad held Canaan's hand and let him walk in the waves

It all looks like good fun here but Alif was doing the usual heckling . . .

All my boys . . . how blessed I am!!

So pretty here, at the top of the beach access

My kids seriously love their cousin Christian

Oh - and I uploaded oooooone more picture, over at Exposaroonie. Wanna go vote for me?

  1. Emily, these are great pictures...what kind of camera do you have?

  2. Thank you Karla! It's a Sony DSC-H1 and it's been an AMAZING camera for me, but I really want to upgrade to a good D-SLR. This one has 12x optical zoom which is one of my favorite features.

  3. those beach pictures- wow. Love the one of Caris and Canaan and the reflection off the sand. Also love all of your very accurate descriptions LOL. Oh man. And I seriously welled up with tears over that picture of Malachi and Christian. Your family is one of the biggest blessings in his life!

  4. Where do I find your pic on exposaroonie?
