Everyday Blessings

It was a week full of them...

: : Stephan took half a day off last week to help my disorganized self get ready for a beach vacation because he's sweet like that. He also did a bunch of late night, last minute grocery shopping because I kept forgetting things. I'm super grateful for a patient and (mostly) helpful husband.

: : We went to the beach! Okay, okay, so Levi threw up the whole way there...not so much of a blessing, but then he was fine until the evening before we left, so yay for the strange stomach bug break.

: : The beach was a blast. It looks super cold in that picture because I took that in the evening when it was pretty chilly. During the daytime, though, the kids got to bust out their swimsuits. 

: : The waves on the beach in front of our hotel were too high the first day, so we looked for other things to do. We ended up finding an incredible beach spot that was protected by a natural rock wall. It was like a giant, beach-side kiddie pool. To top it off it wasn't as sterile as the hotel beach, so Levi and Stephan got to catch hermit crabs, chase fish, and even watch a raccoon go fishing.

: : Watching my kids experience the beach for the first time was priceless.

So, what are you grateful for today?


  1. Sounds like fun! Wish it were warm enough to bust out swimsuits here.

  2. So, sweet! I love the photos and am so glad you got to get away!

    Tonight I am grateful for my parents taking the girls, hubby and I going out to eat...and tomorrow I get to meet Mary, a blogger from Atlanta who is the brains behind Three Thinking Mothers!

  3. AW, AW, AW!! Soooo cute.

  4. Yay for a mostly fun trip! It sounds great.

  5. Love the pictures! I hope to get my munchkins to a beach someday. Glad you guys had fun, despite the icky drive there.

  6. I'm glad Levi (and all of you) was able to enjoy the beach. He has gotten so big. Beautiful kids!

  7. Love the beach pics! I'm grateful to live so close to the beach - I really should go more often!


I'm so glad you're here!
