Beach trip with just me and the kids-June 1-4

sweetest girl ever!
watching t.v. together...i love how ella always snuggles into weston when they watch .tv.
henry sneaking a drink from the pool:oP
swimming with their new snorkel sets...
Chasing the waves and totally fearless!

I think she looks so much like weston in this picture! that is definitely a weston face!

all ready to swim!

For a little treat for the kids and a little break for me, i decided to take them to the beach house the tuesday after memorial day for a few days. it was so nice to get away from chores and responsibilities and just relax! we started and ended every day with a bike ride and went to the beach twice. the kids had so much fun playing in the ocean and the pool! i had fun laying on the beach:o) chad and henry came down the last night and surprised the kids while we were at sam & omie's eating dinner. it was so great to see the joy on their faces! nobody makes them smile like daddy! we got ice cream in the rain and the kids spent the next day in the pool with chad while i cleaned up. we all had a great time and i can't wait to go back to the beach this weekend with my girls!! in the words of my friend, danielle...holla! did i use it correctly, D?:o)
Never is he this sweet, but this is how i would like to remember him when i look back on memories of my 6 year old.
all ready for our first bike ride!
we rode on a path along the bay...
and this was our view! gorgeous!
don't just love a good forced smile!

Ok, so I just really laughed out loud at your "holla!" Yes, you used it correctly...see NJ girls rub off on those VA girls ;) It looks like you had an amazing time at the beach with the deserve a couple of days of relaxation.

So, let me know when you girls go away next year b/c I would LOVE to join you. I'm hoping Miss Kenna will make her arrival sooner rather then later. So count me in next year.

I love Ella's Weston face. I see the same thing in Lydia already when she looks exactly like Luke. Can't wait to see you!
