I LOVE THE BEACH!!

So, last week my family went down to Emerald Isle, NC for the week!! It was so much fun and I loved every minute of it. We, of course, went to the beach everyday, went swimming in the pool, played putt-putt, went to Cape Lookout on Harkers Island, had fun at the aquarium, went to Fort Macon, NC, and overall had a super fantastic time!!!! I loved being there watching my kids play and enjoying the sand and sun. Karly loved the sand, but not so much the ocean. She did enjoy the pool, especially walking off the edge and going under. She did that about 100 times. It was so funny to watch her. Kaleb loved the ocean and seriously just dived right in and let the waves knock him down, and then he would get up and do it again. He really enjoyed the body board and actually would stand up on it, to try to surf (I am bummed I didn't get any pictures of that). He really had good balance, I was so amazed how long he could stay up on the board. Hailey loved it all!! She actually would go out in the ocean with me and float over the waves and dive under them. She swims so well!!! It really was so AWESOME!! I am so grateful for my parents for making this trip happen and so thankful I have a wonderful family to enjoy the trip with. We decided to do this trip as kinda of a last big family get together before Kyle leaves on his mission in the early fall. I am so glad we did this trip because it makes me realize even more how blessed I am to have this family, they really are amazing! There are a lot of pictures in the slide show, but I hope you will look at all of them, b/c they are all good:)
