Our last day at the beach traditon

Friday, August 31, 2007
The peanuts saying goodbye to the ocean on our last evening. Harry and Will were sitting at the edge of the water and I saw the photo -op, so Dave simply stuck Kate in there.



I love to have pizza in the early evening on the beach. This is a little family tradition we have whenever we go to the beach. We usually save it for the last day so we can linger as long as we'd like at the beach instead of getting cleaned up to go out to dinner. We don't eat pizza very often (even though I LOVE it) because of food allergies but we make an exception a few times a year.



Kate's first time sharing in our family tradition.

This guy really wanted to join in on our family tradition too. My camera scared him off before he got too close to our pizza.

  2. Could they be any sweeter....
    I think not....

    I know it was hard to say goodbye.
    I miss you all.... boohoohooohooohooo
    (I know... why don't you move to Hilton Head and then we can play often) Yep, that sounds like a grand idea! It's all settled then, I'll start house hunting for you... hehee

  5. Ok, I so didn't need that first photo. You totally throwing me over the deep end on that one. There it is again, that ache in my heart that you seem to bring out in me the best. It's the older boy thing with the lil' China girl that gets me every time.

    I love the photos Kim and I love that we never have to say goodbye to the ocean. Summers are the best and so is the beach!

  6. Such sweet pics especially the first!

    Food allergies huh? they can be not so fun. I was a GI pediatric nurse practitioner until I accepted the job teaching in a nursing school. One of MY LEAST favorite things to do was to call a parent with test results related to food allergies.

    I am not really happy that summer is ending but I am looking forward to cooler temps (why can't it just stay about 75 with no humidity)?!!

  12. These pics are absolutely precious! I love the first one. It is just the sweetest photo of the three of them.
    We are headed to the beach in two weeks with another family who has a daughter from the China the same age as Mallory. We can hardly wait. This will be our second summer to go with them and I am thinking we might have to do the pizza on the beach. That sounds like so much fun! What a fun tradition!
