Our Beach Trip~

Each year we spend a week on the gulf coast. It is a relaxing time. We make memories and enjoy our time there. We stay at a military campground in one of the trailers/cabins.

My three youngest on the beach. Wyatt (7), Alyssa (11), and Wesley (5 for a few more days). Each day we would spend some time at the *big beach.* The campground is on the bay and each morning I spend some time sitting, reading and just being quiet.

My special place each morning.....

Our skim boarder.... Wesley

He loved skim boarding. His older brothers skim board and a last year he started doing this. He was actually pretty good .... and he is just 5!

Dakota on the beach~

They loved building castles in the sand. Our Wyatt's favorite thing to do... so the older guys helped Wyatt with his castle building.

Wyatt building castles on the beach.

Michael (our oldest, married to Amber) took the littles kayaking. They had a blast.

Here is our daughter in law with Wyatt.... at Joe's Crab Shack. We always make it a tradition to eat there while we are on our beach trip. You can see how crisp they are... and that is using sunscreen of 45... and reapplying.

We have more pics. I guess I will have part 2 next. I hope all of you are enjoying your summer. Making memories.... for tomorrow this day will be a memory. Laugh more.... Live Life on purpose....


  1. I'm so glad to see the beautiful pictures. It looks like you all had a wonderful time. Do you miss not being there still?
    Did Mandi and Dakota get home safe from their mission trips? How are they both adjusting to being back home?

    Love in Christ,

  2. Hiya Teena. Looks like a wonderful trip! I'm glad you had such a good time and so glad that Michael and Amber could holiday with you! Can't wait to see the rest of the photos. - Deedee
