Colin is our budding photographer and seems to have quite an eye for "the" picture. We ventured out early this morning for our annual tour of the pier and he asked to take a picture with my camera...below is what he captured!
The pier tour always involves a shark sighting or two. The children were all on watch but only a few caught a quick glimpse of the lone shark we spotted swimming about the surf.
The pier pose....
and when all sharks were behind us, we took up some time inside at the arcade...
a few tickets and a handful of prizes later, we were on our way to the beach for the day.
The most precious moment that I get on the beach to date is having Maddox crawl into my lap and take a nap as I listen to the waves crash - pure delight. Of course, after the beach nap and many waves being ridden, it is home to the pool.
The backyard pool is an added plus to our week....the best of both worlds really!
Nothing says awesome like P's hair when he comes out of the water - no gel needed!
Our one evening out is also our picture night....the children love this night! Ha! They love the night out, the pictures, well, not as much.
However, they do humor me and let me snap a few to document our family time at the beach.
It is important to note at this point that really these are the only clothes my children have worn all.week.long. We put on bathing suits in the morning, shower in the late afternoon and change into the comfiest, warmest pajamas for the evening. That is it. Bathing suits + PJs = great day at the beach!
Drew and Paige....Drew just graduated from college, recently got engaged and will begin her nursing career in the upcoming months! Paige will be a sophomore at College of Charleston and keeps us all entertained with her college life!
And the whole crew....with the "five-bombing" nephew and brother-in-law....story is that Ryan is the Clemson influence among this crew and he was taking the picture....the "five-bomb" is for Carolina beating Clemson FIVE years in a row in football - OUCH.
