A few weeks ago we went to Virginia Beach with our friends Scott and Leslie.
Alex loves the sound of water - doesn't matter what form -so just the sound of the ocean put her in pure bliss.
For the last few years this is how Zach 'surfs'...he's been VERY leery of venturing too far out in the ocean - which has been just fine by me...
But after an hour or so he was literally testing the waters.
By the end of the day he was going too far out for my comfort zone - I was a nervous wreck, but he loved every minute of it.
All of the fresh sea air and excitement of the ocean made for one sleepy girl. She is getting so tall.
We had a kayak that the boys took turns going out on and that was a lot of fun for them - there were dolphins every where so they got to get a lot closer and watch them dive out of the water.
Zach all excited to get out on the water and acting silly.
And being silly with Jeff!
Alex had a BALL in the ocean. Of course we have to hold her up the whole time so it's a bit of a work out, but all worth it when you see the pure joy on her face!
It is REALLY rare that we ever get a picture of the four of us, let alone a fairly decent one - so I LOVE, LOVE this picture that Leslie took of us!
And I love this face! :)
There was a hammock at the house that she really enjoyed too - we have a swing on our porch for her, but we definitely need to get one like this - she LOVES to swing.
The weekend away made me really excited for our upcoming beach vacation!
Lots more to catch up on, but that's it for now!
