Beach Trip July 2011

We had the opportunity to spend a week in Pensacola this summer again at my parents' place.  I really do not take these vacations for granted-having this precious time together to enjoy each other and the beach!  We are so thankful!!

 Nathan became our "goggle man" this summer.  He has never been afraid of the water, but this summer he really took off with his swimming.  So much so that he too needed a pair of goggles!!
 See, I told you... he is growing up WAY too fast!!

 These boys love to dig, dig, dig when we play at the beach!!
 On the bay side of the place we stay there is a huge inflatable water park.  This summer we let Abby and Jacob give it a try.  It was still a little bit of a challenge for them to be able to pull themselves up onto the inflatables, especially with a big life-jacket on, but they certainly enjoyed trying!

Here they are on the water trampoline!
 Going up the big slide!

 At the top, about to come down...

Jacob loves to be thrown at the pool!

Here are a few of my favorite shots from our beach pictures!!  All 5 of us piled up in the sand!

 I don't even know what to say about this one...

Another favorite part of our trip this summer was that our dear friend, Meredyth, came and spent half of the week with us.  We loved having her there and hope it will become an annual tradition!

 We got to celebrate her birthday with a Baskin Robbins ice cream cake- Yummy!!

This year for the first time ever, we were in Pensacola over the fourth of July, so we were able to see the fireworks and the Blue Angels.  Unfortunately, I can't find that series of pictures, but hopefully soon, those will be up and running too!!
