Beach Boys

Our boys of summer feel right at home on the beach -- building sand castles, riding waves and racing across the shore. During our vacation, we awoke one morning to the sounds of Christian running through our beach-side condominium. When Joe asked what he was doing, he explained, "I'm trying to burn some energy." We made sure the boys had plenty of time to play outside each day. One day, when Christian tired of the sand and sun, he asked to go inside to watch TV. "I really need to go in," he pleaded. "I think I'm seasick." Before too long, though, he was ready to head back out. And now that we are back home, we are all feeling "sunsick," wishing we could spend another day on the beach.

Carson has grown so much since we visited the beach last year.

Christian looked like a golden brown sugar cookie after rolling around in the sand.

Catching waves and smiles.

Fabulous pictures! I love how the little gals are playing sweetly on the beach and the boys are rough and tough in the water. :-) It seems like Carson is similar to Copeland and loves his boogie board to ride waves. We need to sneak away for another girls trip soon!

Melissa, I love your site. I am a kindergarten teacher in Kentucky. Your site makes my day. I love reading what you have written. Our family is expecting a first grandchild in Sept. Her name will be Emma Kate. Can't wait to hold her and love her. Hope your back surgery goes well. I had back surgery five years ago. It was amazing how much better I felt in the recovery room. Saying a prayer for a speedy recovery. Do the exercises they recommend. They will help you the most to a speedy recovery. Keep writing...you are a ray of sunshine. I did take two very good friends to The Glitz. :) Loved the experience. Bathing suits are adorable. May God Bless your family. Edna in Kentucky.
