Sand, Sunscreen and the Salt Water! {Personal}

August 08, 2012  •  7 Comments

Back in June, my sisters and our families made a trip down to the coast to enjoy some R&R.  Although, I prefer the cooler months, this trip to the ocean with my family is something that I hold near and dear to my heart.  Many family memories have been made down by the sea.  Some years we've only been for a couple of days and then others it's been a whole week but no matter how long the stay, we always try to honor this tradition with each other.  We've watched our kids grow up pushing Tonka trucks in the sand and building drip sand castles while sitting in the salt water pools that the tide left behind.  This year was no different, thankfully we were all able to enjoy a few days together doing some of the following.
