well we are home from the beach...trying to get back to some kind of routine before school starts back on monday. trying to do some of the laundry in the huge piles everywhere i have chosen to ignore for two days :) our big girls said that they were missing the beach the day we got home...but when i asked miss maggie if she was happy to be home she shook her head AND did the sign for yes, both for the first time! it was too funny!! our baby girl loved the beach but she is definitely happy to be home!
a few of my fav pics from the last couple of days at the beach...
our beach baby
miss rayley beth
emme grace in the huge hole she and rayley beth and jeffrey dug...actually rayley beth only helped about 5 minutes...it went like this :)....
rayley beth -- 'i'm done. i can't take it any more.'
emme grace--'here let's swap jobs. i'll dig and you scoop.'
rayley beth--'i don't want to swap. i don't want ANY job.'
emme grace is our busy worker bee. rayley beth...not so much:)
our funny girls having fun
those eyes...part bambi/part puppy dog/part angel...they melt my heart
sweet and shy rayley beth
our big girl emme grace
possible family christmas card photo...we only had to take about, oh i don't know, 40 or so to TRY to get everybody looking AND smiling!
our 3 little love muffins
our girl LOVES LOVES LOVES to swing!
miss maggie loved scribbling in the sand
so we all had a wonderful time taking miss maggie for her first trip to the beach...she loved it which i pretty much figured she would. our baby girl is so content and so happy...she would just play in the sand, wet or dry...or find her shadow...or watch her big sisters splashing around or building sand castles. she just adores her big sisters and loves to really take in every little thing that they do.
so a wonderful fall break but we have a busy week ahead..lots of therapies, field trip with miss rayley beth to the pumpkin patch and a hayride which will be our first chance to wear our new costumes! the girls are so excited...we have a butterfly, a witch and a skunk. can you guess which one miss maggie will be? ;)
