Life's a Beach

In no particular order, here's a few shot from our annual beach trip with the fam.

Madi and Tyler. And I know it's Madi thanks to the purple bow and earrings. :)

The whole gang attempting a pyramid. Almost a success!

Singing the Beib on karaoke. Funniest thing evah and I am kicking myself that I don't have it on video.

Mini golf with Daddy and the boys.

Sand castle building.

He's thinking about his vacation in September, sans 7 grandkids and kids :)

The 4th

Playing a little catch up here. This year we did something a little different over 4th of July week end. We hit the New River with some of our most favorite people. What it is about having a body of water around that makes things extra special?

These 3 were choping at the bit to jump in.

This one could hardly take the wait. River swimming is something new for her!

They were patiently waiting on this:

Inflatable island. So so fun! And I have to admit to my self that this inflatable island would be so so fun without the kiddos too. A good book, margrita and an inflatable island all day long would = awesomeness.

There was lots o food too. Allow me to present the Pioneer Woman's Flag Cake. The thing probably weighs 10 pounds but it is 10 pounds of deliciousness! If you make it, prepare to feed an army and eat on it for 2-3 days.

I think he was a fan :)

His first trip to the river trip too!

We also did a little of this.
But we didn't catch anything. However, Soph announced to everyone that Mike did manage to catch a snag.Wasn't even trying to be a smart ass when she said it, ha!

We packed up in the car on Sunday and had an early dinner at my favorite, Pies and Pints. Complete with a playground and the most delicious pizza, it pretty much rocks.

Last stop was Babcock State Park.

The Captain

We ended the evening with our very own firework show over the river. By far the BEST little private show evah. Thank you Mike and Mary Beth for sharing the Camp with us. We had a blast (we'll just forget the part about Little Bit screaming that she would walk home when it was bed time :>)
