We went to the beach tonight and Art and I took a bunch of pictures. There’s lots here, but considering that a) we have the three most adorable kids in the universe and b) we took more than 200 pictures, you are really getting off easy.
So enjoy them! We sure enjoyed our evening at the beach!
Surveying the water, still clean and dry.
I just love this of Sammy.
Aren’t they funny?
Two of my best guys.
Yes, as a matter of fact, he is ridiculously tall. Sigh.
I absolutely love this picture. 🙂
Collecting some rocks to throw in the water. Ryan has been throwing rocks in the water at this beach since he was a year old.
It’s Bobble Head Sam!
Doesn’t this look like we’re at the ocean instead of a little lake in Iowa?
Love this man.
And this sweet baby girl.
Even better when they’re together!
See how wet they had gotten by this point?
Gracie’s first picnic on the beach.
While I was feeding Gracie we decided to take some pictures of the two of us. Aren’t we cute?
Of course we are!
And here we have Fail #1 and Fail #2. Which is worse, Ryan’s underwear pulled up to his armpits or Sam’s bum hanging out for all the world to see?
Still in love after all these years!
Not bad for a family picture taken with the self-timer. The my-eyes-won’t-open-all-the-way look is the one I sport pretty much all the time these days!
Love these guys!
Art was swinging Sam around. Cutie patooties.
Grainy but hilarious.
Sometimes when I look at my family I am just amazed by the gifts God has given me. Aren’t they incredible?
Never mind the maniacal expression on my face. Isn’t Sam cute?
I love that he’s still small enough to give me kisses, even though he’s so huge.
Oh, and let’s not forget Gracie. She was chilling in her carseat and on her blanket while we were cavorting on the beach. She’s been smiling a lot lately but we have yet to catch the full-on grin on camera.
Still, she’s awfully darn cute, don’t you think? Love this baby. Love this family.
Love you if you’ve managed to stick with me through all these pictures!
