Working hard....


Or hardly working? ;)



Beautiful weather at the beach this week, thank you Lord! I miss my K.K. She is in Fairhope spending a few nights with one of her best friends Anna F. Anna's grandmother "Mimi" is having "Camp Mimi" for the girls, and I know they are having a blast! Thank you Mimi! Those older sisters do deserve some special time!


Even though K.K. is away, we still have six kiddos with us because my niece Claire is spending some quality time with us! She and Carlie seriously could be twins, couldn't they?

Well, they might as well use their flotation devices for a Dorito shelf!
By the way, I have invested in several different flotation devices and these are my favorite. I got them at Target and they serve their purpose...mommy doesn't have to get in the water! ;)

Oh, how I love the beach. Seriously, I am begging Carlton to go and be missionaries on the beach. They (vacationers)need Jesus too. Only 9 more days till we leave!!!!

Have a great time and relax!

What fun, Laine! And I'm so happy that KatieLyn's getting some special time away. That's so special! Oh, and thanks for letting our family's oldest sister (ok, ONLY sister) spend a couple of days with y'all, too. She's so excited she's driving me nuts!!!! Do you realize she'll turn 19 when she's at the beach with y'all?

First of all, I love the bow in Kimmie's soaking wet hair! FASHION is KEY when you are at the beach! And, it looks as though y'all are having fun! But I won't jump out there on that limb and assume anything!

BE CAREFUL and have a BLAST!!
Love ya,

...the beach.....(insert happy sigh)
Our Oregon coast just doesn't look like your pictures right now! Cold, wet and rainy - doesn't matter tho', I'll head there anytime!!
So fun to catch up with your blog - precious pictures, precious family.
Blessings~
(ps. I'm working on my tag.....I have a few to catch up on!)

Love all the photos. It looks beautiful at the beach! Looks like everyone is having a great time!

Amy said...

I am jealous! We cannot wait for our beach trip this year. Have a great time!!

I've always said that if someone wanted to go looking for Jesus, they needed to look no further than into the eyes of a child. By looking into the eyes of these children, especially Kimmie, I think Jesus is having a great time at the beach!

Love,
Jerry, Connie, Austin, and Lily Grace (and Lia Faith, out there somewhere)

looks like super fun!
Oh I bet you do miss your KK. I would too! She is the sweetest. Such a helper too!
A true Treasure.
I love those float devices too, they were my fav with J and C. Caitlyn was terrified of it last yr though so I bought her a speedo jacket type you zip on and she loves it. It works well too. You probably have to kick a little more though...

The Woodalls said...

Oh, I'm jealous!! Looks like everyone is having the time of their lives! Wait a minute...now that I think of it, every time we go to the beach, somebody gets sick with a stomach virus! Ewww! I don't think we ever got the smell out of that condo the last time!!
Have fun and be safe!!

Hey beach babe!! Glad to see you all are getting to relax, enjoy the sun and sand, and each other. Good for the soul ...

Aunt Pearl said...

You MUST be relaxing at the beach - that or recovering from 4 children with motion sickness - who knew boating and fishing could be so miserable? I know that in spite of everything, you all are FERRILLS and YOU LOVE THE BEACH! Miss you all!

Tina said...

Oh I am so glad you all had a great week at the beach and that Kimmie had a great Dora party. Sophie is just counting down the days till her big day! We are in DC this week and the kids are loving it!

The Blaszczynski Family said...

Oh I am so jealous of all you guys. A beach trip is not in our summer plans unfortunately, but am thrilled you guys are having such a fabulous time. Enjoy the rest of your trip. Today is Zoey's birthday, can you believe she is 1! Loved Kimmie's party pics, too cute! Have a safe trip home!
Love,
Amanda
