Life’s a Beach


I wish we had a few more days of vacation.  A week just always seems to fly by.  We had so much fun in OBX.  The beach, the sand, the pool, and two water loving babes.

The little one took to the beach like she had been there a million times.


She was one with the sand and the water.  You couldn’t leave her side for a second.


The big one full on swam in the ocean.  Out in the deep waves.  Swimming between Chris and I, giggling with joy when a big one was headed our way.  I have never seen anything like it.  He is growing up.


Family photos didn’t go quite as planned, but what can you do with a  toddler and a little boy that thinks his mama’s matching outfits and picture taking is annoying?  They still look cute and will always remind me of these special moments.


And of course I can’t forget about these adorable little girls that stole our hearts this week.  They are our family.  I love these littles and we are thinking a four ‘peat is in the mix for next summer.

I have LOTS of laundry to do.  A little doggie that I know can’t wait to see us tomorrow morning.  And some much needed sleep in my own bed.  There is nothing like vacation, and nothing like getting back home.  I will sort through my 100s of photos and be posting again soon.  These were just a few that jumped out at me. 

Love, Clare
