i promise.....


these are absolutely the last of the family photos from our seaside vacation. 
i promise.
{but i do have some random beach photos that just might show up every now and then. sorry}




we declared our last day in seaside a full beach day.
the kids snorkeled and boogie boarded. shells and sand dollars were rescued.
my camera was accidentally covered in sand. his iphone accidentally drowned.
shoulders and legs got sunburned. laughter was everywhere. 
and best of all, smiles were huge.




the kids got bored late in the day and built us a sand castle. 
no they didn't.
a professional did and this is only part of it.




seaside, florida. 
it's simple...
you are truly loved.

  12. Just perfect! I could take more of the seaside. Love it. Wonderful shots everyone of them.

    Little known fact: I once was in a sand castle building team contest and we won first place. We even had dry ice in the mouth of the dragon. It was a fun memory. We took a class from a professional sand castle builder.
