some sand, a little sun, and a whollotta rain : )

We are back and in full swing after our getaway last week. It is always so nice to get away, especially just the four of us. We missed the grandparents and such, but it was so wonderful to be just us. our little unit. and Debby.... she wasn't quite so wonderful though. She tried her best to rain on our parade.

We had about a day and a half (Friday and Saturday) of cloudy beach time at the beginning of the trip. Then, again on Wednesday we got out on the beach that morning. These pictures are from those cloudy days. The kiddos didn't seem to really mind that there wasn't much sun. But this mama sure missed the rays and the tan that she didn't get. We did get a day filled with beautiful weather on Thursday. We were too busy soaking it up to take many pictures. The ones I do have are on my camera and I haven't uploaded them yet.

She's ever the water bug.... He, well, has to be convinced.

Daddy and his babies

the best of friends

of course, tractors in the sand.

Debby did bring us a beautiful sunset over the Halifax

this boy adores. his. daddy.

We had a fabulous time. We ate well. We played well. We loved well. Even though we didn't get the sunshine we had hoped for, we got lots of snuggle time and time to just love each other.

Sister was ready to get home to our animals by the time Friday came. Brother, on the other hand, shared the same mindset as his mama. We weren't ready to come home. The entire trip back, whenever we mentioned 'home', he would say, 'Home? No. Never Ever Ever! Beach!' That is what mama thought too, Buddy!

It was a great trip. We are so thankful for the opportunity to take a vacation there and can't wait to go back!
