Happy July 4th, 2015
The children wasted little time getting their suits on and heading to the beach to enjoy the surf and sand!
And it is medicine for my soul to sit back and watch my five children as happy as clams playing together!
There were evenings spent on the beach fishing - lots of fish caught as well as a baby shark! The shark story is a funny one. Pryce caught the shark and Ryan had gone back to the house for a moment. We didn't know how to take it off of the hook so we asked the neighboring family for their assistance. The dad and 11ish year old daughter came over and the DAUGHTER took the shark off of the hook! Our mouths hit the floor as she handled the shark and then asked if Pryce would like to throw it back in. What boy would have the nerve to say no???!!!
Maddox has always been our child that can sleep anywhere and she loves to sleep on the beach. What a gift!
MK is our monkey in the middle. She will be the glue between the boys and the girls as they meander through life. I love that she can hang with them and then dote on her sisters all in a good day's time.
And the laughter.....music to my ears.
Sweet girl was all dressed up and she was running all over the beach a mile a minute! Admittedly so, I could not keep up!
MK was much more cooperative :)
Maddox, not so much! She was on her own time, in her own world!
This pretty much sums up the evening of photography on the beach!
Sassy and sweet....
The boys are often not photographed anymore....it is a rare event when I am able to convince them that a picture is good for their health! Or at least it is good for mine!
Ryan's parents joined us for a long weekend....we enjoyed our time with them, watching fireworks and watching the parade!
They really are the sweetest!
