August happenings...

The day after our return from Seaside, we hit the park.  It was another one of those awesome (but weird) cold fronts we had this summer, so it was the perfect temperature!






That weekend we had a pool birthday party for three of our friends and hit up Kincaid's afterwards:


We started a home renovation project which meant we had to go floor shopping. These two were great shopping partners...I felt like we were building all over again! (And yes, that is a Wrinkle in Time Harper is carrying. She has taken to carrying my old books around to "read"):


We made another trip to Hawaiian Falls with friends:

I took my sweet munchkins to the museum:





This feels like a flash forward a decade down the road:


This happened. Again.


Then this happened:


It wasn't a great week.

We finally made it out to one of our favorite splash parks:




 This is one sweet princess:


Who makes hilarious faces:


She is rarely without a tiara:

Seaside Road Trip - Day 6

 Saying goodbye to the beach:


We had such a wonderful vacation. As we were driving away, Harper yelled "Goodbye beach! We will miss you, but we won't forget you!"  It was the perfect, relaxing vacation for our little family. We can't wait to go back!

Seaside Road Trip - Day 5

 Our last full day at the beach. :(  We got down there bright and early. It was by far our longest day at the beach, we didn't even leave for lunch.  We ate our lunch right there on the beach.  Pictures are out of order as usual.

In the distance, you can see 3 dolphins:


Okay, you probably can't in these pictures, but they were there. The one great shot I got, I accidentally deleted.








Hud trying to point out the dolphins to Harps:


Later in the day, a stingray was visible as well!












 So proud of the castle they built:


I wanted the classic beach pictures:











Earlier that day - Harper showing off her new puppy:





They spent a lot of the morning trying to catch fish:













We had dinner at one of our favorite spots:



Every night, we saw dozens of flashlights on the beach - crab hunting. We promised the kids and so our last night we took them:
