i know i haven't been updating this blog a lot lately. truth be told, it's been kind of nice to not have to worry about it. but summer is like that, ya know? everyone is so busy doing this or that, traveling, visiting family, here one day and gone the next. this has been my favorite summer yet-- we've had a lot of fun with the girls, especially because they are growing so fast and learning so many new things. annie is such a big girl now, running around and talking and giving goldie a run for her money. it's fun to watch them become better friends every day. not much to complain about... feeling very thankful for everything in my life, the big and the little things.
these photos are from our annual beach trip to hilton head island, south carolina. my family has been going since i was 12 i think... somewhere around there. we stay in the same place every year and it really is like a second home to all of us. while vacationing with kids is kind of not a vacation at all, it's worth it in the end when you've been able to spend some serious quality time with your family that you don't get to see very often anymore. the girls loved the beach, obviously, and we had fun doing nothing but that: playing on the beach.
remember how my children are growing up so fast? it's kind of crazy. anyway, hope you're having a great summer... i can't believe it's almost over.
