The Beach {Part 2}

Smiles for Cousin Cruz! And Cruz is thinking something along the lines of, "Ohh Lawd, she's comin' for me! YOU GUYS..."
 Feeding Max. He wins the BEST DOG WITH KIDS award. Go Max!
 We put both Pops and Grandma to work with the Ergo
A little reminder of their current homeland 
 Here's to hoping that next year she's into surfing, long walks on the beach and getting buried in the sand

Beach Trip {Part 1}

There weren't many beach pictures taken, but here are a few

C's bathing suit of choice 
 One night we had a South Sudan inspired meal 
{which was most likely followed up by large bowls of ice cream}

 Hater of all things being put on her (bows, hats, etc.) I knew that a handkerchief was our best bet. The spots were a long shot.

"Seriously, who put these black spots on me??"
 What's a tradition without a little comparison? 4 months and 16 months 
 This feels like Y.E.A.R.S ago. Last year the thought was "This is our one big outing today and your Daddy's out of town. Let's make the most of it!" and this year it was, "Well..we're up at 7 anyways...wanna beat the breakfast crowd?"
