I love the beach!

Last week we packed up the kids plus three of their friends and drove to the beach. Now, I'll be honest, I wasn't sure how a whole week at the beach with SIX teenagers was going to work. But it was completely awesome in every way!

(Me and Bill, Micah, Sarah and Kelly, David, Caleb and Danny)

There was no arguing or fussing or squabbling (not between the kids at least!) And there was lots of laughter and chatter and giggling. And on the first morning there, the kids woke up to find that the Easter bunny had found them!

So after a breakfast of chocolate...we hit the beach!

We needed to soak up as much sun as possible, and we did!

And we did a little biking, and yolo boarding, and go cart racing, and even celebrated a sweet 16th birthday!

We took long walks on the beach...

And saw some amazing sunsets...

And we soaked up every blissful moment of it. There may have even been a trip to a quilt shop, but I'll save that story for later. We are home and tired, but tan and happy! The dogs were slightly excited to see us when we got back, Luna was even happy to see us. LOL



  1. What a great trip. It seems a lifetime ago that we took teenagers to the beach, and never six!! Glad you had fun.

  2. Sounds like a good time was had all around! We used to go to St. George Island for beach vacations, multiple extra kids in tow as well. Great memories!

  3. What fun! I took six teenagers to the beach myself many years ago for a "Teen-age Beach Party" and we all still remember it.

  4. So wonderful to have teenagers with you and to spend such wonderful holidays! You gave them unforgettable memories!

  5. These photos are full of hapinness ! Thank you for sharing these wonderful moments with us !

  6. We use to spend our spring break in Mexico doing the exact same things when we lived in Arizona. Good memories being made!

  7. That's awesome! So happy for your great holiday with the family.:)
