The Beach: Family Pictures

On our last night at the beach we attempted a family picture. This is about as good as it got. Not too terrible, but they won't be making the Christmas card this year. Maybe next time! 


The Beach: Brother Pictures?

Okay guys...let's take a cute sand picture!

Wait...I want to PLAY!

I'm out of here...

Wait! What's going on??

Okay...fine. Naptime!

Beach Bums

A couple weeks ago, we traveled to Pensacola Beach with my family for a week-long vacation. Thirteen people in one house! It was crazy, but we had SO much fun. Max loved being around his cousins, and I sure didn't mind all the extra help with two little ones. We didn't know Mr. Ben would be coming into our family quite so soon when we made our beach plans, but it all worked out just perfectly. There was always someone to watch him back in the house, and he ventured out to the beach a couple of times too!

I have never been a huge beach person (gasp!), but I have to admit that it is the perfect vacation with a large group that includes little ones. Go to the beach in the morning, go back and nap and lay around on the deck, then do whatever you want that afternoon and evening. Fabulous!

I have a ton of pictures, but here are a few of the "second generation" cousins...

This is my favorite...even though Ben is either yawning or trying to eat air.
 Stop playing in the sand, Max!


 Now let's go play at the beach!

Max experienced the sprinkler for the first time tonight. 
He was a fan.
