Beach House 2010: Sunny Ending

Five years of going to the beach and this is the first year we haven't had perfect weather the whole week. It really doesn't matter. I mean, hey--it's the beach! And, we did get a great sunny ending.

Best. View. Ever.

Jake loved this tractor toy.
And I love that face.

Everyone in the water.
But me, of course.
Someone's gotta distract Jake by feeding him sugar. This kid was terrified whenever his daddy was in the water. He'd cry and yell for Blaine to hold him whenever Blaine tried to go swimming. It was actually kind of sweet of him. I just wish he hadn't been so scared.

So, Jake was completely terrified of the ocean until the last day there. We don't know what happened to make him want to run in the waves with his daddy, but it's all he wanted to do. What a weirdo.

We didn't know how long this would last, so I just kept on snapping the pictures.

I wish I looked as cute pregnant as Markelle.

These little boys are really turning into little pals. Jack likes to tell Jake what to do... and Jake loves to listen and follow whatever Jack says and does.

They were having a great time putting Wheat Thins {best beach food ever!} in the grooves on the deck-bench.

Jake's not much of a hugger, but Jack sure tries.
I love these boys. I can't wait to see them grow up together.

Beach House 2010: Dana Point

Every year, we say we want to go check out some tide pools... and every year, we don't.

Well this year, Steve took initiative and we made our way to Dana Point.
It was pretty awesome.

There was a cute lady painting this scene right beside me as I took this picture. I figured if it was good enough for her, it was good enough for me.

On our way down to the beach.

I think this cave is where Pete's Dragon lives.

Doug is pretty excited about something. I wish I could remember what it was.

Blaine and Brent showing Jake and Jack the pools.

I'm sure Markelle has no idea I took this. Surprise!

Blaine took this one.

So, a bunch of these next pictures I took one right after the other.
I love watching the ocean. It changes so drastically in such a short amount of time.

On our way back.
