Beach Trip Photo Dump!

We've had a great summer so far and thanks to a very sweet couple (you know who you are and we can't thank you enough), we were able to enjoy an awesome trip to the beach during the 4th of July week.  It worked out that my sister was down there for her son's baseball tournaments along with my mom!  So for the first time we had a "big" family beach trip with my side of the family!  Good old Myrtle Beach, SC was where it all went down (Mike and I used to live here before we had kids).  Here's my big photo dump, enjoy!

All the cousins.  Gotta love Bennett's face in this one!  LOL.

Me and my boy!

My mom and B!

Our next Christmas card pic??

Yep, I think he's pretty adorable;)

I don't know, do we look alike??

Rare pic of just the two of us!

My sister Alexa and her husband Seth.

My sister and her family always take such good family photos!

B wasn't crazy about being in the lifeguard chair.

July 4th!
Good sister time.

Sensory issues??  No way!  At least not with the sand, water and general craziness of Myrtle Beach!

Sand castle time!

Our future golf pro;)

Classic face for Harper.

School will start for the girls in just 2 weeks (we do year round school here) and Bennett will start school on September 4th!  All 3 kids have become little fishes this summer at the pool- Bennett is a crazy man when it comes to the water!  He loves it!  Ainsley's last swim meet is coming up this week and we are so proud of the things she's accomplished!  Harper passed the swim test and she can now go down the "big blue slide" by herself so all is good in her world.  

The days here are hot and sometimes long but never boring.  Pretty soon the house will be quiet and I'll miss all the noise and commotion.  I'll be wondering where the summer went and how my kids grew up so fast.  So for now I'll just enjoy it;)
