Expecting Baby # ?...

Daytona Beach bound with Granny, Papa, Nana, Kylie, me, Ryan, Nanny, Braden, Reed and Charley
7 adults and 4 kids so 4 rows on the plane. We have decided that Uncle Craig times things just right by flying up by himself a day later because of "work". I think that's his way of getting out of flying with kids and all the luggage transportation:-) All of the kids were great on the flight but I cannot imagine flying more than 2 hours with kids!
 Charley Rae dressed cute as always
Nana and Reed with his super cool glasses. His glasses are not that strong but they help him see things in a distance better.
 The kids were all so excited to get to the beach and they didn't waste any time getting out there when we got there. I have always loved the beach but having kids there makes it that much more fun.
 Reed would have stayed at the beach all day if we would have let him. He loved it more than the pool and has no fear when it comes to the ocean. Really all the kids loved the ocean, but Kylie was the one who liked the ocean the least.
 Papa having a good time with Braden. The thing I will never forget about my dad at the beach is him always making me go out in the ocean whether I wanted to or not. He is not the kind to just let you sit back if you are scared of something. I would be crying on a raft as he proceeded to pull me out into the ocean, and he would talk to me the whole time telling me it was fine. I guess it worked because I love the ocean now.
I was so excited that Ryan got to come the whole week this year with us. The kids loved playing with him in the pool and ocean. Tina and I really loved it because that meant we could just lay out and watch!
Uncle Craig in his "beach attire". Craig always wears jeans and long sleeve shirts to work in even if it is 110 degrees outside. That makes for a really nice tan...tan face and super white legs and arms!! I was so glad that he got to come for most of the week too. Nothing like hanging with your family at the beach all week.
Charley and her daddy...this is another little girl who has her daddy wrapped!
Kylie and Charley reading books before bedtime. I love that our kids are going to get to experience having cousins to grow up with since I never did. It is such a neat relationship.
I love that look!
 This is one of the many ways the kids found to entertain themselves when we weren't outside. The discovered that the air mattress can be used as a rock climbing wall. Who knew?!
 Braden jumping the waves
 Kylie and Charley spent more time playing in the sand than the ocean.

 We went to eat at Boondocks one night for dinner. I have decided that all my pics of the 3 kids will be them looking the other direction when I want them to look at me and smile!
The restaurant is on the harbor and feeding the fish and birds the leftovers is always fun with the kids. The grannies were being our kid watchers since there is a simple rope that separates them from the water.
 Reed loving all of the fish coming to the top to eat his french fries.
 Nanny, Braden, Kylie, Reed and Papa...I think mom and dad called each other to tell one another to wear black and khaki to dinner!
Nana and Papa with their 4 grandkids
 Nanny, Braden, Kylie, Charley, Reed and Granny...what a huge blessing that their great grannies can come on vacation with them. I pray that they will be able to do more beach trips with us!
 Polos and swim trunks after dinner
 Charley and Kylie found this nasty puddle to lie down in. Nice!
Beautiful picture of Charley!
 Daddy getting Braden with sand
 Look at those curls!
 Well, you are probably freaking out thinking why does the title of this post say "Expecting Baby #?" Keeley crazy? I'm not that crazy...Aunt Tina is expecting baby #2 next March!!!!
  Nana spoiling the girls rotten by putting make-up on them.
They were hilarious and kept saying "look, look".
 If this doesn't make you smile then I don't know what will!!!
 Charley Rae Hutchison is probably so glad to be home away from our kiddos:-) The poor thing got broken in to what it will be like when she is a big sister next year. She can definitely hold her own too though.
Aunt Tina and Charley plus baby #2! Can you tell that I am so excited they are having another baby!
 More pictures from our trip continued on the next post...
