Some of our best moments this week

Watching a little one run on the beach.

Playing in the touch pool with a bigger one.

Laughing in amazement as half a dozen children all run in the surf at once, soaking themselves to varying degrees despite the cool wind.

Feeling ever-so thankful for the rental-house washing machine. And for Costco brownie mix. And for the fact that I picked up UNO Attack before we left.  Not every day on the coast is sunny, after all.  But rain or sun, every day this week has been much enjoyed.

  7. For some reason those pics brought tears to my eyes. It is so great to see such happy children. 🙂

  8. Mary – that last photo especially is just great! Thanks for sharing! I’ve enjoyed following your blog this past year. I found it shortly after we decided to adopt and we just got our kids home last week. =)

  9. We were at the coast that same week back in 2008! I saw a family, with lots of kids at the aquarium and told my mom, “She looked just like Hazel’s daughter…” Anyway–what a crazy, small world. Thank you for following your Heavenly Father’s instruction and being such an awesome example. It wasn’t long after that, that we started our own adoption journey 🙂
