Back to reality after a great week at the beach...

We're a beach family for sure.  I love the beach because it can entertain the kids for hours at a time day after day.  We always have activities to do like bocce ball, flying kites, playing frisbee, catching fish and crabs, collecting shells, building sand castles, digging giant holes, and endless hours of boogie boarding.
We had a great week.  We had a constant flow of visitors.  The kids always had playmates whether it was other kids, cousins, or grandparents.

**Excuse the crappy, pixilated pictures here and there.  I took a few pictures with the photo option on the video camera.  I had no idea they would be so terrible.  Won't be using that ever again.**

Hunter has become quite the boogie boarder this year.  It's by far his favorite beach activity.  He's gotten to the point where he can catch his own waves.

My nephew and his girlfriend came over one day.  They brought their surf boards and I decided to give surfing a try.  Unfortunately, there is no photo or video evidence (I can't do everything!), but I got up on my second try!  It was fun!

last day of vacation ;(


She wasn't about to get to close :)

Lots of fish!


Hurricane Irene blowing by the coast.  We're so glad she stayed far enough away.
Peyton had some cake her birthday.

Pretty sure she liked it.

We practiced some cheerleading stunts in the pool.
