Beach Weekend

The weekend before last, our little family of 3 took a quick get-away to our beach house! It was a beautiful weekend-just cold! I won't complain though! We got there Friday afternoon and hung out and relaxed. I also enjoyed watching the TLC channel because we don't have cable here at our house! Saturday after breakfast we headed down to the beach because it was so nice! Of course we're wearing our winter coats-but oh well! Here are a few pictures of the weekend:Lily playing with the game Jenga-but she just knows them as blocks!
I wish she'd smile! Notice our pink cheeks and noses! The heat was taking forever to warm up the house! But we managed! :) View from the deck Lily chasing after our dog Charlie

This was Lily's first time at the beach! Well, since she can walk that is!

I love this-it's like she's contemplating her life or something!

My favorite! She is such a daddy's girl! And I love how they are my treasured loved ones and how they are both looking out at this massive ocean that God created!

Another sweet picture It was such a beautiful day!

We had a great time, but it was a lot of work for 1 night with 1 child! She also really wanted to go INTO the ocean! She didn't understand that she couldn't and was quite mad at me when I wouldn't let her get wet. But I guess it's like a big swimming pool to her! I was literally chasing her all over the beach just so she wouldn't go in the water. I know you're all thinking that I should have let her go in, but she'd get soaked and it was COLD! We still had fun though! Saturday early afternoon AJ and Lily left and my girlfriends showed up for the next night! My friend Jami is getting married this month and her and the rest of the bridesmaids met me at the house for her bachelorette weekend. It was so much fun and of course I forgot to take pictures! We shopped, ate out, did pedicures and watched girly movies. My kind of weekend! I can't believe it's December already! Here's to the Christmas season!
