It's that time of year again where we load up all of our crazy kiddos and haul them to the beach for a week. Ryan and I look forward to this week each year because it is so much fun and we make so many new memories with family.
Craig, Ryan and Nanny played cards all of the time. Most nights they would play until midnight. My Nanny is such a trooper!
I just love the monogrammed bathing suits on the girls even though these are the girls least favorite ones to wear. We are going to make them wear these as long as we can get away with it.
I think we are THAT family that people cringe when they see coming to the pool. There is absolutely NO calmness involved with our kids and even worse when you add Ryan and Craig to the mix. There is a lot of throwing people, cannonballs, sharks and minnows and the list could go on and on for what goes on when we are in the pool.

Who ever thought of the ice cream truck should be one rich person! Who can say no to a $5 snow cone on the beach when you hear that ringing of the truck and kids begging to get one. Life is short so why not!
One of the two nights that we actually went out to dinner. I love this picture of Reed and Braden!
Charley and Kylie
Ryan and his "baby" girl
This picture sequence is hilarious of Kylie. I think that I might be a little twisted because I love to watch people fall about as much as I like to see them get plowed over by a wave!
Mom and Nanny going for their daily walk to the pier, with no kids!
Another awesome sequence of the girls getting plowed by the waves!
The ice cream truck that makes a killing off of some ice cream on a stick!
Uncle Craig just chillin' in the ocean. He definitely needs down time off from work, and we really enjoy that he is able to come this week too!
I never had cousins growing up but am so thankful that our kids get to experience this awesome blessing!
Ryan is such a great dad to our kids!!
Show me your scary face!
I hope that Nanny is around for several more beach trips!
Thank you God for this three amazing blessings!
We have been blessed with good health and a wonderful year this past school year. I pray that this upcoming year is filled with many more wonderful memories and good health!
