the beach

we’re here right now. it’s hot and sunny and windy.

the kids love splashing in the ocean and playing in the sand.

amelia learned how to build sandcastles and takes it very seriously. daddy built this one though. complete with a garage. which is very important for a sandcastle you know.

and also for orville because he loves to make lines with his cars and trucks. i think they are all waiting for a turn in the garage.

orville keeps sunglasses on all the time. we are very thankful for that. otherwise he’d be constantly rubbing sand into his eyes and crying about it. he also cracks us up because he looks like a little old man the way he holds his belly in his suit and sunglasses and hat.

and here’s one of my favorite shots so far. i don’t know why exactly, but i love taking pictures of josh standing on the beach with the kids. i have a feeling they will be pictures we really treasure once the kids are all grown up.

    okay…so did you think I didn’t want to follow anymore? I assumed after several months of no posts, that you had stopped for good. I just happened to click on your link in my bookmarks, and what do I see? Kirsten has been blogging and I have missed it! I will be spending some time catching up!

    Also, I still have not made it to Ohio to see my parents, so I have not forgotten about you. Reality is I think of you a TON!!! Especially as we are moving at warp speed these days!

    Thanks for your encouragement.

    I’ll be back soon to catch up…but for today, there’s lots that has to be purged before Monday.

    Love, hugs and prayers,

    enjoy the beach…can’t believe you didn’t invite me heeehee!

    Wish we could be soaking up the sun on the beach! It is just now starting to warm up. Finally! And by warm up I mean reach maybe 70. Anyways, I love the sandcastle! I noticed the garage right away! And love the idea! I also enjoyed all the cars waiting to get into the garage. I love all the pictures! So fun to see you guys enjoying the summer weather!
