It's a bedtime tradition that began with Little Nutbrown Hare, and each night we try to outdo the last...I love you to the moon and the beach and the mountians...and one of my favorites, "to Jesus and the angels" and back...We never imagined we would be saying, I love you to Africa and seems like the furthest imaginable place, but yet in God's perfect timing, we plan to go.... to Africa and back!!! And when we get back, we will have another little cheek to kiss goodnight...please keep us in your prayers and enjoy this journey with us!

Back at the beach!!!

We are lucky enough to be back at the beach with our friends. Emmaline is LOVING having so many friends to play with! They are doing a very good job of entertaining each other and we're having fun getting lots of good pictures!

Taking a break from the car seat on the way here, she found her sunglasses in the console and just had to try them out
This picture was taken at about 6:30 am, so much for staying asleep to pass the time! She did do really well with wearing her headphones for watching TV though, which we really appreciated!
Packing the night before...emmaline decided all she really needed for the  beach was flip-flops, sunglasses and a cold drink! Talk about a blackmail picture!!!

More vacation pictures

Decisions, decisions, decisions...

Family picture (we took it ourselves, kind-of tricky!) from my birthday

I'm way behind here, sorry!!! Quick update since the last post: I've had my birthday, we've (Emmaline and I) have taken a weeks vacation @ the beach with my parents,  and we are leaving tomorrow as a family for another week at the beach with our friends! Emmaline is doing something new everyday...her favorites right now are CLIMBING CLIMBING CLIMBING...singing her abc's (she makes it all the way through all by herself!), counting (stairs as she goes up and down, trees/birds/cars as we drive, etc) and just being silly. She says and does the silliest things and accompanies it with such a funny grin because she knows she's going to make you laugh! Enjoy this assortment of photos and video from the last month!
