Family Visits…Beach!! Riptide!!

Jared’s brother, Jason, (pictured below) his wife, Maribel and their 2 kids: a son, James (14mos. older than JJ)  and Marie Victoria (1yr. older than Susie--below) came to visit for a week and just left yesterday morning.  We had a wonderful time.

These pictures will (mostly) speak for themselves…of our day at the beach with a STRONG riptide…it was crazy! We didn’t know what to do at first and JJ was scared…so it was different but beautiful and fun nonetheless…P1100867

Marie wasn’t so sure about all of this and I’m sure the riptide didn’t help things…

James was just like his Daddy…all over being in the water…he didn’t like the salt in his eyes

Love these…


What do you think they’ll think of this photo when they’re teenagers?? 

I know something about these two: they are two of THE handsomest little boys around:)

P1100857 We are missing Susie, but this is already so adorable…could you imagine with her too?

So because of the unpredictable waters, the water came up over where we first put our things…everything got all wet and sandy…


Marie wasn’t too happy and Susie fell over and was all sandy, but…

This tells the story…there was no calm sitting at the end of the tide…it would try to pull you in…

What great pictures! Such a fun day! As we get older, aren't the times with siblings, cousins, etc. so incredibly precious (especially when you don't live near each other? I'm so glad we got to spend so much time with Brad's family this summer (although my kids are really missing their kids, which makes me sad!).

Love you and can't wait to see you again!
