Beach Vacay Part 3

It was a cool week with some rain but we made the most of it anyway.

This girl loved the water this year!

She was crazy in the water! I'm thankful that she's brave and not scared. It makes beach time so much more fun. And she did an amazing job of looking out for Will!

Beach Vacay Part 2

This year McKenna and I decided to work on a puzzle on vacation. It was McKennas first 500 piece puzzle.

We finished it in 48 hours, so I had to go to the store & buy another one. I think this will become a new vacation tradition for us.

We celebrated the kids born again birthdays at the beach. McKenna got right to work on her new devotional.

Beach Vacay Part 1

This was Will's first look at the beach!

McKenna had been looking forward to this for months!

Daddy let them get wet, even though it was cold & dark. I was grocery shopping! A fun start to a great week.

Toothless Wonder

A 14 car ride to Illinois seemed like the perfect time to work on her loose teeth.
Not a baby anymore!
And he's pretty stinkin cute too.

Skim Boarding

We bought Christian a skim board when we went to the beach. He was hesitant at first.
But then he figured it out and was so happy!
Pretty soon it was about all he did!

Snip snip

Sweet buddy got a hair cut. Those angry birds kept him busy and he actually didn't cry! Growing up.

We all scream for ...

They're gone

This was the scene ten minutes after the cousins left.
They were worn out. I put Will right to bed and he slept for 12 hours!

Wrapping up Cousin Week

Everyone went to one of Christian's games to cheer him on!
Just a few of Christian's fans.
Cousins are like an extra set of siblings.
We had a great time at the carnival.
The big kids all ride this.
Thankfully Will & McKenna were content to ride this car.
A super fun night.

Nate & Will

This is why cousins are so special!
Nate is always so sweet with Will! This was not staged. We were watching Christian's ball game and I turned around and saw this!

More Cousin time at the Park

Missionary visit

This picture is a big deal. My kids with a missionary family that their Sunday school class prays for every week. I'm so thankful that my kids get to grow up personally knowing missionaries. The week the Douglass family came to visit you would have thought One Direction was in town! Thankfully my kids could care less about One Direction & instead look up to this family who has spent their lives translating the Bible into a language of an unreached people group.

Orioles Fans!!
