The ocean. It makes me feel alive. It invites me to rest. It had been two years since our family had vacationed at the beach and in September we once again headed to Emerald Isle, NC to put our feet in the sand.
We rested. We ate well. We read books and watched movies. We took walks and gathered shells. We battled waves and floated on our backs.
We took the annual "last night on the beach pictures" that are always so fun to capture!
Equal parts sweetness and sass, that's our Sophia.
Gosh, I love these boys. We've made it so far! I remember thinking someday we were going to make it to age 8 and here we are! Crazy how far away these days feel.
And now we have this little darling joining in with all the fun!
My mom joined us for vacation this year. I just adore this candid shot of her with Ava!
The last days of summer come to a close.
