This was the view from our room all week. Being able to actually see and experience this part of God's creation is always breath taking and I was once again filled with awe at the vastness of the ocean, the infinite number of grains of sand, it gives great meaning to Psalm 139:17-18 "How precious to me are your thoughts, O God. How vast is the sum of them! If I would count them, they are more than the sand. I awake, and I am still with you."
I love these boys, how handsome are they? And this sweet baby girl, how can she be this big?
Our week usually involves a whole lot of nothing, which all of us truly enjoy. We built sand castles, found sea shells, ate lots of tasty food, floated in the turquoise waters and sat with our toes in the sand. It was a really relaxing trip.
Adam decided to take the "polar plunge". Our second day, the water was a little bit chilly but it didn't seem to phase all the boys in our group.
These sweet cousins had fun playing together in the sand and surf. I think each one of them had such a great time hanging out and splashing in the waves. Many memories were certainly made!
Sweet baby Abigail did a lot of this; I'm certain she loved the peaceful sound of the waves coming in.
I loved spending quality time with my sweet family this past week. It was so incredibly relaxing after quite a few grueling weeks (for both Adam and myself) leading up to our vacation. Getting away and having a change of scenery from our day to day was a real treat for us all. Simply sitting, staring out into the vast ocean and listening to the calming sound of the crashing waves was oh so refreshing.
