hanging out at the beach house - reading books, playing games ("fast sundae" was a hit with the kids...although sometimes the competition got a little intense and "ticket to ride" was a hit with the big kids...it involved some trash talking), movie morning, wrestling, the ultimate climbing tree in front of the house, smothering brandon, eating, blowing bubbles...
dave’s *constant* companion. it was rare to see him without myles hanging onto him. they were buddies the whole trip.
fun at the beach - the sand was so soft and perfect for hanging out, building sand castles, collecting jelly fish, sea shells and sea weed, reading, beach olympics, frisbee golf, flying kites, a morning jog, digging, putting your head in and exploring...
the walk down to the beach
bonfire and s’mores on the beach
the girls...and we'll get 1 more in october!
grandma, grandpa and all the grandkids
this was one of the best of *many* shots (from many cameras). it's not easy getting all 9 kids to look at the camera...or smile. they sure are cute!
when dave and i got to the airport after the vacation we felt like we had forgotten something...like a kid. after a week straight with lots of kids around it was weird to be just the 2 of us again (although we did enjoy the quiet). can't wait till next year!
