Went to the beach over the weekend. Since Chris is down in Florida for work, we decided to pay him a visit. Unfortunately all the wildfires had left quite a bit of smoke in the air, but it was still a beautiful day, even without the sun shining.
It was the first trip to the ocean for Sophie and Isabelle, and I felt blessed to witness the excitement on Isabelle’s face when she first saw the ocean. The girl has no fear when it comes to the water.
Unfortunately we had just gotten her tubes put in a few weeks ago and forgot her ear plugs… uh, sorry doc! Of course, you can barely keep her head OUT of the water, but our sweet and sensible Sophie, she only waded in up to her knees 😉
Sophie loved playing in the sand, burying her hands and then furiously trying to shake all the sand off.
Tori ‘chillaxed’ (chilled + relaxed) with her cell in one hand and her iPod in the other.
The boys loved searching for animals and shells and spent the majority of the afternoon hunched over, looking for the perfect find.
The ocean was clear enough to see the bottom and they all screamed like little girls when they saw a huge crab shuffling along the ocean floor. I love days like this. No laundry, no cleaning, no worries. It was a good day.
Love the BEACH!! Great pics mom. Last year Annslee saw the ocean for the first time and I was happy it was a first I didn’t miss : ) Oh, and she ran right in too..no fear.
Those are just awesome!!! You are so good with a camera – and it helps when you have such cute subjects!!

What wonderful photos of your beautiful family.
I love these photos! The one of Isablle relaxing on the beach in front of the ocean is my favorite, although they are all great! Looks like you had a great weekend!

Gorgeous photos as always.
I cant help you on the photo question, if you’ve been to my blog lately you’ll understand my frustration with all things technical at the moment.
Love, Love, Love the pictures, and everyone in them 🙂

LOVE the pictures and I know the excitment you felt watching the girls explor the beach. I felt the same way when we were there with LiLi!
I love the pictures! Are you going solo with the new lense or are you toggling between the two? They are great and I love the expressions that you have captured on all the kids!
Stef! These pics are beautiful!! I am loving those gorgeous eyes on Dalton and Asher (who I have already mixed up in my mind, sorry- I’m terrible that way). Absolutely gorgeous, and it looks like they all had so much fun!!
You take the most beautiful pictures! I love checking in every day to see what photos you’ve posted!
