Hi friends! Thanks to everyone who filled out the Reader Survey. Your feedback has been super helpful to me and I REALLY appreciate you taking the time to let me know your thoughts. If you haven’t yet- please do! It will only take a minute and it’s so good to hear from you!
Whew it feels so good to be back here talking with you. I took an unexpected blog hiatus because mom, wife, daughter-in-law duties are always my first priority. Honestly, I don’t really want to get into the details right now but everyone is ok and let’s just say I’m ready to get back to our routine. Oh how I’ve missed this little corner of the blogosphere. Missed creating and crafting and zhushing and tweaking. And then blabbing all about it to you! 🙂
Let’s just pick up where we left off, shall we?
As you know the boys and I were very fortunate to spend some time with my family down at the beach…22 days to be exact! It was a wonderful experience so I thought I would share some of the highlights from our trip.
Mom is a dedicated morning beach walker and I managed to heave myself out of bed most mornings at the crack of dawn so we were able to enjoy many-a-sunrises. This is a shot of Sweet B and I taking it all in! While him and I have been up many early mornings together- this was his first official sunrise.
Our God is an Awesome God!
I added something to my bucket list:
Live in a house at the beach with an outdoor shower.

We were up for many sunrises, but also watched many sunsets. Here is Sweet P and I sitting on the dock of the bay.
Of course, I snagged oyster shells for some crafts.
And while at my Grandmothers we saw a double rainbow. Sweet P went running out and yelled “THIS IS MY FIRST RAINBOW!”
Never a dull moment with this kid.
One major highlight was watching a couple turtle nest releases. I will try to do a separate post about this because it was such a neat experience. Here is Sweet P cheering a baby turtle on! So sweet.
I brought my Go Pro camera and we had some fun testing it out.
Verdict- not very user friendly but still a fun toy. Here is Dad looking at Sissy doing some sweet moves on her kayak. #dontask #yogaboss
My Dad in his happy place.
Phew! We were busy! What a fun way to spend our summer. I am so happy that both boys LOVE the sand and surf and I look forward to many more fun memories at the beach with my crew!
