Oh, The Beach!

My wonderful Aunt Jane lives at the beach.  To say I love the beach is a bit of an understatement.  I'm almost positive my house in heaven will be on the beach.  So, when Aunt Jane moved to a little town near Cocoa Beach, I was ecstatic.  My mom and I have made 5 trips to see her (we invited the big boys once!).  Every trip is just perfect...the food, the beach and of course, the company.  I love that my boys love Aunt Jane too!
We started our visit with a stop in Metter to visit with Seleta!
Our days were spent at the beach.  The boys loved "riding the waves" and Levi wasn't bothered by the sand.  He's a beach lover too!
He also kept this pool ring on his head for an extremely long amount of time.  He'd walk around with it on his head.  
We visited the pool in the afternoon and evenings.  It's a great pool and it's right across the road from Aunt Jane's house.  Just perfect!
 Someone was a bit sunburned after our first day at the beach!
We found a really great putt-putt place for the kiddos.  The boys had a blast!
Don't you just love summer colors?
 These two are so special to me!
 The whole bunch!
We are so blessed to have such wonderful people in our "family".  Aunt Jane has made such an everlasting impact in my life.  I look forward to our next visit!!!

Random Summer Fun (2013)

We had a wonderful summer full of vacations and visits from family. When we weren't out-of-town, we spent our time at the pool with friends, enjoyed our newly finished basement and colored lots of pictures.

We also...

...had a blast at the mud course at our local park.
 ...enjoyed celebrating David's birthday at the old faithful Olive Garden.
 ...celebrated at home.  Happy 32nd Birthday Babe!
 ...drew wonderful drawings.  This drawing in particular makes me a bit teary.  Noah is starting to truly get "it" when it comes to the truth of Jesus.  He drew this picture while he was supposed to be napping.  The other reason I get a bit teary is that I was really upset at him for not napping, and then he showed me the picture he drew.  Mommy fail...I think the picture was much more important than the nap!
 ...had fun with friends.  Noah will hate me for this picture one day!
...ate McDonald's after a great 6 year old check-up.  Noah is so glad he doesn't have to get any more shots until he's 11.
