That was the final count on the number of pictures we shot at the beach this year. It has taken me a while to sort through them and pick out my favorites.
It rained Sat, Sun & Mon so we were stuck inside-- the boys passed the time by "swimming" in the jacuzzi tub. Shark Attack!
On Tuesday, it finally cleared up & we got outside! Liam absolutely loved the ocean & the sand. Jack was a little less excited.
I spent all week trying to get a good pic of the three of us, but with 2u2, I didn't have high expectations. We got a few decent ones like this:
More often that not, we got shots like this:
I have one (older) brother, and it's amazing how much the boys look like him, especially Liam. When I saw a 20 week ultrasound profile shot of Liam, I said then that I thought he looked like Eric & when he was born, we all said that they looked alike. Right before this picture was shot, Eric was walking Liam down the beach. When he passed by a family, the dad jokingly said, "Wow, can't tell he's your son!" Eric replied, "Uhh, he's actually my nephew!"
When we weren't at the beach, we were swimming in the (private!) pool at the beach house.
The last night we were there, we took the kids down to the beach at sunset to play.
We had a fantastic week. Although Rob was unable to go because of his new job, my mom & sister-in-law were a HUGE help with the boys-- I definitely couldn't have done it without them. We are so lucky that my parents gave us this gift-- a wonderful trip, a chance for my boys to see the beach & an opportunity to spend some much needed time together. These summer trips are the highlight of my year & I treasure the memories we make.
