Beach 2013

What are cousins to do when it rains the first two days of vacation?! FORT TIME!

 We went on our annual vacation with my side of the family over the week of the fourth.  It was an amazing week.  I am not sure anyone had as much fun as me and my girls.  We are beach bums at heart.  If it wasn't raining, we were there!
 Reese spent 75% percent of the week with her hand in a chip bag. Beach time is for snacking!
 Precious niece.  She is such a happy girl...and so pretty.
 This is my partner in crime, we have such a good time soaking up the sun, playing paddle ball and most of all people watching.  He is one funny dude.

 That thumb....reminds me she is still just 6! Going on 16.  I forget so often how little she still is no matter how tall she is!
 The fourth, Abby was so proud that she did her own hair.  Reese was ticked she couldn't wear Abby's outfit until she found out we had one to match Ansley.  Thank God...and again, Kelly's kids ad?!
 My surfer girl, she is a fun kid.  We might get her a board next year.

 Evening cocktails on the porch, self portrait using my timer for the first time.  It took a few tries to get it right.
 Here is our sweet set up.  So when a surprise shower came on we could go to the house for 2 minutes and come right back!  Such a blessing for this rainy Summer.
 Abby discovered peach love with it.  Again, Reese-hand-chips.
Again :)

 Dinner out
 Whole gang
 ....Kelly's kids again!
 After dinner on the beach.  It was kind of dark.  I was surprised these turned out as well as they did.

 This is supposed to be me...gotta love that Reeser. My head and body are all one piece.

 Last day, it was so sad.  I didn't want to leave!

Blueberry picking

 The girls were going blueberry picking early one morning and I was up anyways so I went to take some pictures.  I have never been and I think this is the third or fourth year they have done this or strawberry picking too.  The weather was wonderful and cool and the blueberries were plentiful.  I have a freezer full for muffin making!  I use Paula Dean's Blackberry muffin recipe and substitute blueberries.  It is amazing.
 The girls got tired about a quarter of the way into their buckets, lucky I was there to help!  I think I let them stay up too late the night before maybe.
 I have been seeing a pattern, that all of our pictures are like an advertisement for Kelly's Kids. ;)
They are best friends...70% of the time. Love these girls, we are having such a fun Summer.
