Photo Friday 2011 ~ 18 ~

I just have to apologize in advance for the picture overload today.  I had a seriously hard time narrowing down over 600 (after deleting a bunch from my camera during the ride home) photos taken on our vacation last week and this week.  We had the most amazing, relaxing, and fun time.  Our kids are old enough now that vacation doesn't seem like so much work and we can really enjoy them.  They loved the ocean this year and they both got in and swam.  My son finally got over his aversion to sand and had a great time digging, using his shovel as a golf club (only my son...) and knocking down sand castles.   My daughter loves sand...laying in it, burying herself in it, fake falling down in it, running in it, and getting it all over everything and everyone.  We took walks on the beach, went to Pirate Golf twice, ate lots of good food, watched the sunset, swam, and just sat...there's a lot to be said for just sitting and looking at the ocean or the pool and not sitting and looking at a screen of some sort.  It does wonders for a person.  I think that's my favorite part of vacation.  People were meant to look at nature...it's just so uplifting and relaxing.  Okay, now sit and look at my photos on the screen. : )

She loves the beach just like her mamma.  She is not one to sit still though.  I love her braid swinging.

My little pirate.  He loves all things pirate right now.

Looking for shells.  She always finds the best ones for some reason.  On our first day she find a huge, perfect shell.  In this photo she was picking up pieces of sand dollars and she wanted me to glue them together.

There's just something about this picture that I love.  I think it's the movement of her hair and the glistening of the water.

My babies in their hats.  We finally found one approved by my boy, he doesn't like the kind with the chin strap because, "Those are for babies."  This one was perfect since when it blew off we didn't have to go chasing it down the beach.  And yes, the water is really that blue in real life.  Sigh...I wish I were still there!

We had perfect weather the whole time we were there and these were some of the only clouds we saw.  I think they look fake they are so perfect.

A picture of the bay.

Every year we do sunset photos one evening.  I love how the sunset makes my son's hair look so red.

My cuties.

I've been having a really hard time getting a real smile out of him lately.  This one is real because he thought it was really funny when he stepped right in front of his sister when she was posing for a shot.  Stinker.  I love his new freckles too.

I love this face he makes right before he smiles.  It's just so him.

My beautiful girl.  I adore her profile.  And I love the pink light from the sunset hitting her skin.

I love, love, love this.  I have to find a spot in my house to frame it.

I love how much they love each other.

Another profile shot, I know...  But I love the silhouette of her face with the sun setting in the background.

Last one.  I love this out of focus shot of the sunset.  It's just how the sunset looks when you try to remember it.  The reflection off the water is perfect.

Hope you enjoyed these because there are way more coming up in the next few posts!!  Have a great weekend!
