Unfortunately, it has been a very wet summer, so we didn't know what to expect from a weather aspect. However, mother nature spared us, and it only rained a half a day and sprinkled a little a couple other days. In addition, the water was awesome all week, with the exception of one day.

The best part of our trip is just being together and watching all of the kids together. They really love each other. As they get older, I see more and more similarities between them too. Pres and Christian are such competitive, active little boys. And Bennett and Henley couldn't be more different from them. They are both more dramatic, and little caregivers to each other and Lucy.

We started most days with a morning bike ride, and then headed to the beach. The kids alternated between the pool and beach, but it never was a problem since we had so many adults. We visited area parks, went crabbing, hunted shells, built sand castles, road waves, did a lot of swimming, played games, went out to eat a few nights and visited sno-balls, the sugar shak and cool candy...the kid's favorite dessert hangouts. We packed a lot in for seven days, and our kids were exhausted when they came home.
Thank you to my parents for an awesome trip!
