So....yes....this is Mailey and William. Going to the beach every year is our vacation. We aren't big fancy trip takers. Rather we like a week to spend as a family digging in the sand, swimming in the sea and eating lots of raw oysters. Well, Billy and I eat the oysters anyways. The above photo was of my children at a very young age. Mailey lived in that white polka dot bikini. Really. Like I kept it in her keepsake box wore it all the time! I just love the way this photo captured their innocence. At 12 and 10 I will most likely not find them in this position on the beach again. And it saddens me a bit. They are growing so quickly. And changing so quickly. Not that I want them to stay young, but I have to remind myself to slow down and enjoy each growing moment with them. For too long they will be gone. Sigh.
Well, gotta go gather the shovels, pails, boogie boards and bathing suits. We want to get an early rise on the road! See you back next week.....when school starts here!!
