So this post is a little overdue, but my pics were so good I just had to post about our recent trip to the beach! We went over Memorial Day weekend and it was the perfevt little spur of the moment mini vacation. The only downfall was that daring hubby was not able to go. It comes with the territory when you are married to the preacher. I don't mind though, but we did miss him terribly. But, I made a very last minute decision to go and he had no time to find someone to preach for him. I kept swithching back and forth about going, but since finding out about my dad's cancer, well it made me realize that LIFE is TOO SHORT sometimes. And rarely do I ever get to see my brother and his wife and two kids. They were going to be there and I thought it would be a great thing if Meme and Gran Gran had all of thier grandchildren under one roof for the weekend.
So, I quickly packed our bags at midnight, and woke up on Friday and finished cleaning the house, went to my last day of teaching the preschoolers at our church, came home and packed the car and then as soon as the girls got off the school bus we headed out of town! It was a long seven hour drive but so worth it! We had so much fun!
Because of hectic schedules and daily life we tend to take for granted our precious family. Well it was such a precious time having our family all together. We laughed and cooked and played Twister(I didn't get pics of that, but it was hilarious!) and watched cousins play and love on one another.
We literally went to the beach and did nothing! It was the perfect time to go. So relaxing and the kids were all especially well behaved. I loved taking pics of my nephews and laughed at the boys playing and being "typical" boys. I loved watching my parents love on the grandchildren and even got teary thinking that life would not be the same without any of them.
We played on the beach, visited the museum of the Grave Digger monster truck. OK, so my girls were not so excited about that but we do have boys in this family. We flew kites and played putt putt! Kaitlyn got a hole in one!!! She was so excited!
I will post more pics of our weekend get away! Enjoy!

It sounds like perfection. Vacations are all about making memories and I feel like those kind of memories are so important! Beautiful pics! =)
