family beach trip 2012

since saturday marked our very last day of our vacation, we decided to spend some time at the pool considering we've been at the beach the majority of the time. the water felt amazingly refreshing and the shallow end was just deep enough where the girls didn't have to wear their puddle jumpers the whole time. on the flip side, the pool could not hold jemma's ever so curious and adventurous attention so she ended up walking around the whole time, climbing the stairs, throwing things in, moving the patio furniture, etc...so let's just say that our time at the pool was short-lived. back to the beach we went. here are some pics...
i never thought i'd actually prefer the beach over the pool, but when you have a toddler who is as content as can be when digging in the sand...you just go with it. not to mention, big sisters have been itching to fly the kite that we bought during our visit in one of the souvenir stores. flying a kite is so much fun that it sent abby into a tizzy of acrobatic stunts. here are some pics...
after the beach and our normal routine of bumming around the house while jemma took her afternoon nap, we got ready for dinner out at lulu's. we couldn't help but laugh to ourselves when at dinner, the waiter hands me my frozen pina colada and lyla says, "mommy always drinks ice cream at dinner at the beach." yes, sweetheart...mommy indeed does. overall, it was a wonderful wonderful family vacation. these people mean more to me than anything in the whole wide world and i'm so very blessed and thankful for them...
