Beach - Trip 1

There were so many photos that I have delayed going through them all.  Time is slowing down a bit though after a very busy first 3 weeks of June.

When Christopher came home in May, we wanted to take a trip to the beach with him.  Our family is blessed to be able to go to the same spot that I've been going to since I was a teen.  I love being here with my whole family.  (Roger joined us after he had finished up week-end work obligations.)

 It was May so it was still a bit cool here.  Also not crowded at all.

Plenty of room to run and play.

The beach is a spot that everyone enjoys.  I will say that the littlest one just purely delights in the water and sand.  She would stay out all day until she was completely worn out!

 We love walking down to a little "river" that is a place where the ocean makes a gentle waterway.
 Its a great spot to sit and play.

To relax at low tide.
 To look for shells.  This is often where we find the best ones.

To get a helping hand.  I love this picture.  I've always loved seeing them together.  And can you see the huge smile on her face?
Its just such a beautiful place.

Room to explore.
To enjoy family.

To build and create.

Who can identify this one?
Just space to be happy and carefree.
The big holes we dig are fun in the day and also into the evening.

Sweet picture of brothers.
We like to walk down to the pier.

And sometimes go inside to play the arcade games.

Time to enjoy a family putt-putt competition.  (Christopher won!)

And frozen yogurt afterwards.

Beautiful girl.
More digging.  A tunnel.
And everyone (but me) took turns going through.

Tossing water on Daddy is always fun.
I love shots from the back.  So sweet.
Love the way she is looking up to her big brother.
My beautiful girls.

I love having my family all together.

This is becoming a new tradition.  A meal at the Trolley Stop on the way home.

It was just past Mother's Day and I wanted a current picture with my children.  Love it!
Sweet memories with my favorite people.  Thankful for this time.

I hope you are making sweet memories with those that you love too!
