the beach. 2011.

so our beach trip this year was kind of botched a bit
by the arrival of my niece, piper, and precious karolina.
my mom did not want to plan our annual one week beach trip, with
our Buckwalter family, when she wasn't sure when the babies would arrive.

boo.hoo.

if you know me, well...and my sister, you know we were devestated.
do you plan your children around your vacation?
naaah. the Lord takes care of those things...

anyway...my parents went to the beach for this week,
just them,
and my little family of 7, went to crash their party. :)

karolina's first "real" outing...
a trip to Ocean City, NJ @ 10 days old.


yep. you got it.
karolina slept most of the day there.
she did great on the beach...well...she did great everywhere.
not a peep.
i suppose she liked the sound of the waves?


so thankful for a wonderful husband who took the kids out in the water...
while i "rested" , or nursed, on a chair nearby. :)


and what fun is vacation if mam-maw doesn't give them soda on demand?
:)


and kaden even got to try out his new paddle ball game he got for his birthday...
(i couldn't get an action shot...my camera is just too slow.)
thanks jaiden, reese, and piper. :)


and lollies and ice pops on the beach.
is there anything better?
 i think not.

***thanks mam-maw and pap-paw for letting us crash in on your vacation.
it was so worth it. the kids love the beach, almost as much as their mommy, and well, matt, he was just a trooper. we really hope we have a real family trip again next year, but if not, i guess we can just keep crashing in on yours. :) ***

my mom was a bit worried about me all.day.long.
i came home very weary and moving a bit slower,
but so glad we went. so glad.
took wednesday "off" and feel good as new today. :)

gotta love the beach.
