Vacation Time...

On Saturday we returned from a week at Ocean City New Jersey with the Buckwalters. We had beautiful weather and a great time hanging out as a family. There were 14 kids (11 under 6) and 10 adults and it was a fun week of biking, eating, laughing, watching movies, hanging out, sleeping, and just RELAXing. Here are some pictures from our vacation time!

Thanks everyone for such a wonderful week!

Daddy and the boys...

Ma-Maw and Pa-Paw and the fourteen kids!

Moses' s favorite part was bike riding on the boards and getting early morning donuts with Daddy at Browns.

Sarah's favorite part was playing with the girl cousins Zion and Kaycee! These three had such a great time together. What beauties!

Silas loved playing ball and running on the beach!

Mommy & Hopey

Hope did great on her first beach trip! Here she is sporting her bathing suit with a typical Hopey look on her face!

Mark being "super-dad". He gave me a couple of afternoons to myself to just sit and read on the beach! What bliss!

The caption says 'Mom & Dad Thanks for the dounuts". We had just finished devouring ours and saw the sign. Very fitting!

Love this picture! It is of one of the many sandcastles built this week.

Big brother Silas and Hope! He's so proud!

One of the special parts of this week was having Matt & Naomi and family up from North Carolina. We miss those guys so much and it was great to have a week to hang out and connect.

We love you guys. Thanks for the great family pictures!
