Beach Memories

It has been over 2 weeks since we have been at the beach and it has taken me so long to get pictures up on the blog.  I must be going through some kind of beach-withdrawl that kept me from blogging about our trip.

It was fantastic.  Really, fantastic.  We played all day at the beach with the kids and it was great.  I am so happy that we chose to spend a week in Florida.  Here's just a snippet of the memories I took home with me:


Spending multiple days building monstrous sandcastles....
watching my 2-year old take in all the sights and sounds the beach offers
the squeals of the kids playing in the surf
 seeing those sandcastles get knocked down by bubba
watching my 2 year old walk hand-in-hand down the beach with my 10 year old
getting knocked over and over by the powerful blue waters
 the everlasting smiles from my normally-not-smiling 8 year old
 the smell of the salt in the air
the feel of the sun on my back & the cool breeze through my hair
These are the memories I want to permanently keep in my mind.  It was an incredible vacation and it won't be forgotten.

Great memories, indeed!!

We went to the beach two years ago, and it often comes up in conversation.

I think we need a repeat!! ;)
