First Beach Trip Ever!

Last weekend (no, not yesterday), Daddy and I were both sick and needed to rest. Gracie and Luke, however, were fit as fiddles and ready to play.

I'd say she looks done. Wouldn't you?

  1. I wish I was at the beach!!!! Looks like a fun day!

  2. Next time, cornstarch or baby powder. Just a little sprinkle and all the sand just brushes off. Looks like a lot of fun!

  3. I love the pic of both the twinsies buried in the sand - too cute!


Happy 10th Birthday!

There's nothing better than bringing cupcakes and having free dress on your 10th birthday! These two were so excited that they kept r...
