Harper Sees the Beach

Our children grew up riding bikes, playing war
with china berries and sticks,
backyard baseball and 
swimming in the neighbor's backyard pool.

We weren't video game people.
Well, I think the kids did have a nintendo
and one game of Pac-man.

Each summer we took several day trips 
to Savannah, GA and Tybee Island Beach,
just 2 1/2 hours from our home.
They loved the sand and the sea
and they love it now.

This was Christy and Troy's home away from home this week

I could enjoy a one-bedroom cottage for a week
if I had sand and water between my toes.

I asked if they rocked on the porch.

The beach at sunrise may have
lured me away, but
I think I would have enjoyed my evenings right here. 

They love to cook and enjoyed their meals 
in this darling kitchen.

With a baby, it's different, no doubt,
and most of their evenings were spent at the cottage.

This was Harper's first trip to the beach 
and she loved it!

The wind and the waves must have rocked her to sleep.

Our little blue eyed baby is growing, growing. 

She's adorable whether asleep or awake.

She is now sitting up perfectly in a high chair.
This morning they saw a first little tooth about to break through.

Gone a week and she's already a big girl.

Thankful once again, that we are here to see each new thing.

Hope your Monday was a happy one.
