This year, my dad went with us to help with the kids. It is a super busy work week for Ande, so I definitely needed the help!
It was good to spend the time with Dad. He was a busy dude in the water with the kids! Other moms commented how great he was, endlessly searching with his grandkids and their kids for beach “treasures”.
“Treasures” like sand fleas, crabs, mollusks, and pretty shells…a kid’s dream!
This was the busiest Ande has been at Summer Conference, and I didn’t get to see him much…I missed him!
Dad found this little turtle in the water, unfortunately dead. Didn’t stop the kids from being mesmerized, though.
He was so beautiful.
They also caught about 5 jellyfish!
Harps at the beach, double-hatted to keep the sun out of her eyes and the sand out of her hair.
Owen and his buddy, always picking up where they left off.
Impromptu family photo session after dinner…I loved how these turned out! I didn’t even plan the outfits. Thanks, Jaimie, for taking the pictures last minute!
Knox with his favorite babysitter
My attempt to get a good one of all three kids. This is a lofty goal. :)
Dad surprised the boys with matching shirts from the airbrushing store inside the PCB Walmart. :)
It turned out to be a good shirt for the kids to be wearing that night because we lost Knox briefly, and I had to describe his outfit to all the folks in the cafeteria. He was supposed to be with me, but he ran after Ande and Owen without telling me. He was fine, but I was so shaken up….pretty sure that little scare shaved a few years off my life. Thankful for all the people who helped me look for him!
A good week, definitely a perk of Ande’s job.
