I have been so out of touch with the world these past few weeks. I spent 4 days at girls camp with no phone service and then went straight to California where the service was patchy and I had no computer. So not only do I have laundry, cleaning, and phone calls to catch up on but all of the "important" computer stuff too.
So here is a quick recap before we head off to Utah for the 4th.
We had a fantastic time at the beach with Jareds family. Minus the 4 hour drive turning into about 7 hours with a screaming baby added into the mix the trip went relatively smoothly.
We played in the sand.
Jared built a rather cool sand castle, that did not get photographed because the tide got to it first... bummer! He was really proud of it though!
We ate sand... well some of us did anyway.
Beckam preferred to eat the sand rather than build with it... He especially loved the rocks and seaweed... Gross! I love that you can see sand on his nose and around his mouth in this picture. That was basically him all week.
We rode rides at Disney.
Beckam loved the merry-go-round and Cade braved Space Mountain. I do not think he will EVER go on a roller coaster again but I was really proud of him and had a fun time watching him be brave.
We ate cake.
We celebrated Beckams birthday on the morning we left because we were going, going, going every other moment there. He loved his cake and had no fear digging right in.
We took naps.
Cade played so hard that he actually fell asleep on the beach several times. We are still working on catching up on sleep but definitely made the most of every moment.
We played in the water.
I am pretty sure that Cade was wet more than he was dry. He did not care what he had on, as soon as he saw the water he was in it. The only thing he hated was having sand in his flip flops so needless to say he was barefoot most of the trip.
We had plain old fun.
We played games, we ate food, we walked the beach and the pier, we shopped, we laughed, we played jokes, we talked, we told stories, we enjoyed the beach, and the relaxation but most of all we enjoyed each other.
There are so many other stories and moments to share but as of now it is 1am and I am exhausted. So, for now this will have to do.
Thank you to our family for making this week so memorable and exciting. We cannot wait until next year when we get to do it again!
We love you all!
