|The Family (minus Wesley, Cindy, Brandon, Rylie and Jackson)|
We did our beach trip a few weeks earlier this year due to our expanding gardens. It was a great, relaxing trip although it wasn't quite the same without Wesley and Cindy's family. Probably my favorite moments were our daily walks, the games, and just enjoying watching the family eat, work, play and laugh together. Yep, we even work on vacation....household chores can't escape a crowd this large anywhere. Dishes still needed to be washed, clothes laundered, and floors vacuumed to keep the sand out.
Every year since the boys were babies, they pose at least once showing off their muscles. The toddler got in on the act this year. We've played bocce ball, volleyball, football, and frisbee every year at the beach. This year the boys, sometimes girls, played a lot of beach soccer. A few swollen feet, bruised shins and ankles but no breaks as in previous trips with the skim board.

|Even Christopher gets a good kick in!|
The girls stroll along with us on our daily, long, beach walks. These are great moments of bonding, talking about life, and enjoying God's great creation.
|Lazy, sunny days, ahhhhhhhhh|
|Life is good|
