Summer Vacation

Our family went to the beach with David's mom and brother. We had a lot of fun in St. Augustine, FL. It was nice to be able to spend some time together without the stresses of school and church. We rented beach bikes which helped me train for the triathlon. I wish that I had taken a picture of the bridge that we would run and bike. It was a huge hill that was around 0.8 mile. Samuel liked the beach at first, but then he was ready to go home. However, he talks about the beach almost daily! Samuel is a home-body, not like his mother at all in this way! Emma spent some time at the beach too, but for very short periods of time. In the evenings we would look for crabs. David and Jared tried to catch some, but acted like wheenies! So of course I had to get one first so that they would be shamed in to catching some for Samuel to see! He loved it and looked forward to walking on the beach each night. Here are some pictures of the kids at the beach. There was a turtle's nest right in front of our vacation house, so I took some pictures of Samuel by the signs. Also, the chair he is reclining in was on the back porch. He loved that chair!

Haha, Emma looks like she is not too fond of the water! I love the big pink flower! I wanted to see a pic of her in her bathing suit, tho! Did David not allow that? Just kidding! Samuel looks so cute in that chair and on the beach. They are just so precious! Wish we could have been there!

the one with her in the water is a bathing suit, just not the cute kind you are talking about! it seemed that every time we got her in a regular suit it was time for a nap! we will get some pictures when we go to tybee!
