As our family prepares for a lot of changes, I am looking back at our wonderful summer beach trip. My Mom is here to help us prepare for the final stages of the move and I was able to download the pictures from her camera. This is going to be a long post or series of posts, but there are so many amazing memories from this summer that I just don't want to forget.
This is what fun looks like, a van loaded down with goodies and good kids ready to hit the road for a night of driving. The overnight drive has been our friend for the last year. The cargo hitch on the back was full and car top carrier was full of beach toys ready to hit the sand.
The kids are great travelers, especially when they just sit back and watch a movie and sleep.
We hit the ground running with Jon's family coming over for the day. They were vacationing just down the beach so we were able to get all of the cousins together for a day. Here are Halyn, Gracyn, and Addison getting ready to jump in, again.
Jon and his brother, James, played some serious pool basketball.
Uncle Joe got there and everyone was so excited.
Poppa got pushed in.
Aunt Shana had to do some work.
Addie had so much fun playing with her cousins.
The kids played so hard playing in the pool, after lunch everyone needed some down time so the girls curled up in Nannie and GeeGee's room for a movie.
There was some book reading too.
Poppa and Garrett shared a drink.
Then GeeGee and Garrett shared some ice cream.
More ice cream!
Uncle Joe got out his guitar and he and Josiah sang a song. It was a very fun time.
Garrett was mesmerized by the music.
Sweet times listening to good music.
GeeGee and Garrett played ball, I think this picture is just precious.
By the end of the evening all of the kids ended up in Nannie and GeeGee's room to watch a movie. I love this picture of all 7 grandkids, all of them 8 and under.
Uncle James packing up at the end of the day.
Family pictures like this make me so happy. Even though we only got one day together, it was a great day.
