To The Beach!!!

I talked Erik into taking us all on a little getaway to the beach!  So, fun!  We stayed in a wonderful beach house with a pool which was perfect for our family...


Five sweet slow days...





The ducks all in a row...


Zekey loved the water...


This boy.  Be still my heart!


And, then there is Eriky!! He's a hoot!



But, Josh is cool...


These two!


And, so this was an animal filled trip which was awesome for my marine animal loving son, James.  We saw a shark.  First a fisherman just down the beach from us caught him.  A 5 ft long black tipped reef shark.  He let the boys get as close as they dared, and then he threw him back.  But, later that evening as the boys were getting in their last bit of swim time, we saw him again.  He swam right in front of us. Soooo scary.  Needless to say, my boys did not get back in the water after that.


Nana came along which was great fun!



I do love the ocean.


Big breakfasts...






I love this picture!!!

If only our living room at home was large enough for a set up like this!!!  Love the layout.  So much seating...



The night before we left we went out to eat.  The place we went had live music, and the man with the mic sang "My girl," so this...


They kinda like each other...


ALOT!!!!


So, our last day on the beach James picks up this little black thing and is like... "Wow!  A shark egg sac!  Can I keep it?"  Thinking he had no idea what he was talking about I said, "Sure."  You'd think I would know by now that this kid does his research and knows his stuff, but I doubted.  Later that evening I looked it up.  And, yes, he did in fact stumble upon a shark egg sac.  Erik is taking him to Vegas next spring.  Just kidding!  It was totally a God thing.  What are the odds?  Thank You, God, for letting him find it!  Here is the picture I googled to confirm his discovery along with a picture of his discovery...




And, Krisy Kreme on the way out of town....


Bye bye Beach Trip 2014.

Hi! I live in a sweet country home overflowing with love, laughter, and little ones. I have been blessed to journey these days beside a man that I love, respect, and admire. He is my soul-mate and best friend. Together we are seeking to raise our seven children to be lovers of God, to be wise and discerning, and to be all that our sweet God created them to be. I am in the goldfish and cheerio stage of life, but I am keenly aware that these days are slipping right through my hands. This blog is my attempt to keep our memories safe for years to come.
