Fun with Family!


Landree is really into who is our family these days.  She’ll say Grandma is my family, Mia, Popee and Zoe (their dog) are my family, Maggie is my family, Aunt Megan is my family, etc.  And she’s been so excited that ‘our family’ Grandma and Maggie were coming to visit.  They got here on Wednesday evening and we’ve had so much fun hanging out the past few days.  We actually headed to the beach on Thursday morning and stayed at a fabulous beach house that belongs to a family in our church until yesterday.  I had lofty goals to get beautiful beach pictures of the kids, but we were having too much fun playing in the sand, napping (Hudson at least), and hanging out.  Plus I know that Stacey will be taking our beach pictures next month so I wasn’t really feeling too much pressure.  

On Thursday evening we decided to walk around and check out all that the area had to offer.  The place we were staying had places for campers to set up and tons of beach houses along with 2 playgrounds, a pool, kids splash park, grocery store, eating places, an ice cream shop, skateboard park, mini golf, laundry mat, and more.  It was such a neat place we’d love to try and go again.  We took little beach walk and stopped for ice cream.

This was Hudson’s first time to see the ocean!  Looks less than impressed, huh?


Landree on the other hand has been to the beach several times, but seemed to really enjoy it the most this trip!

She kept laughing and saying the sand tickled her toes and she stopped to pick up every shell she passed!

Then she proceeded to lay down and make a sand angel.

Grandma picked up a new pair or shades for Hudson, which he thought were…tasty :) DSC_1080 DSC_1081 DSC_1082

It was a little too cold to actually swim in the ocean, but this girl had the best time building sand castles with her Aunt Maggie, Grandma, and Daddy in the sand.  Everyone headed down to the beach on Friday morning while Hudson and I stayed behind at the beach house while he napped.  I made us a hot dog lunch to eat on the beach when Hudson woke up and then we all played a little longer before heading to the pool.  Grandma, Hudson and I mainly hung out in the shade while Landree, Daddy and Maggie swam in the freezing pool and then soaked up the sun (with lots of SPF for my very pale girl).

DSC_0011We had a lot of fun cooking at the house and just hanging out.  Saturday morning was a little gloomy out.   We were going to try and go play at the playground, but when it ended up sprinkling so we just drove around on the golf cart before heading home. 

DSC_0014Today Jeff preached at church and we headed to lunch, Lowe’s (to get a new grill) and the grocery store.  I made the Pioneer Woman’s pizza crust and tonight we made tomato pesto pizza and this caramelized onion and prosciutto pizza.  Oh. My. Word!  It was yum!  Try it soon!  You’ll be so glad you did! 

Grandma and Maggie will be here until Tuesday morning so we have a little bit more time to spend with them. :)  I still have Easter pictures to post!  I hope to catch up soon!
