This year, she requested a beach trip for her birthday. We don't throw big birthday parties, just cake and presents at home with our family. We try to take the birthday child to do something fun or go somewhere that we don't usually go. This has become a fun birthday tradition.
We went camping on the beach.
The set up.
The cutest 2 year old around!
Well, let's be honest, the beach was filled with cuties!
Breakfast and bible on the beach.
Colton's MLB pitching arm.
Way to finish that swing Caroline!
Fun in the waves.
More wave action.
(P.S. yesterday marked 3 years since Rahel joined our family. We celebrated with mango Italian ice...yummy! So glad you're here!)
As we walked along the beach, I just marveled at how lucky I am that all these people belong to me!
As crazy as it all is sometimes, I couldn't be more thankful!
I took this one today on Caroline's actual birthday. I can't believe she's 8 already. I suppose I'll say that with every birthday......it just goes too fast.
Caroline, you are a beautiful, smart, funny, determined girl on a mission. I pray that your feisty spirit will be used for great and mighty things for the Lord. God has great plans for you!
Happy 8th Birthday!!!
