the visit from the cousins

so one of our favorite parts of our year is when the cousins come to visit.
we do it every year-we act like we are visiting st. louis as well.
we had so much fun this trip.
i forgot my camera a couple of times, so there maybe a few less photos then i had hoped for.
but the gist of the visit is there.
the last night pictures are too heart wrenching to share.  poor kate cried her eyes out.
we do love the friendship they have.  they are just the best of friends. and no matter the length of time, they just are best buds upon arrival.

can you feel the chaos in this photo?

we may not have a pool but we have a rubbermaid tote.

that's a wrap

all good things must come to an end.
our last day was spent outside.  every second of it.
we swam at the pool, went to the beach, the tide was out which was a bit of a bummer, but the girls made the best of it and played like crazy, we went back to the pool, adam made us lunch there, and then you guessed it, back to the pool.

we ate dinner out the last night at one of our favorite places.  we sadly packed our bags and went to bed.

it was indeed, a great vacation.

i just loved the innocence of kates little sandy feet.

anne loves the ocean.

beach bums 
she was a hoot!

no words for her. 

everybody loved daddy's hat

the family time was just so awesome

family pics.

we were so relaxed this trip, we almost forgot to get our traditional harbor island picture.
we had a great view of the marsh and then the ocean past that from our deck.  adam thought the marsh spot would be a perfect location, i did not like the idea. at all. but we went with it.  it turned out awesome.
adam and i didn't grab a picture of ourselves together.
the lighting was perfect.  the kids were good.
another year of not falling off the board walk during family pics in the books!
~chat soon!
