Our Trip to the Beach

Brace yourself for tons of pictures.  Damon and I felt bad that the girls did not get to take a vacation this summer, so we decided to whisk them away for a quick beach getaway the weekend after Labor Day.  Since Aunt Sarah is currently working for Marriott, she was able to hook us up with a sweet family discount.  Thanks, Aunt Sarah!  Here was the view from our balcony...
Watts was really worn out by his first trip to the beach...
He turned one month old on the trip.  Not a bad way to celebrate, huh?
I love baby toes.  Here are my little boy's...
Stella was pretending to be a blowfish.  I have no idea where she got this...
Did I mention that we took the best babysitter ever with us?  Madison was truly worth her weight in GOLD on this trip!  She was wonderful with the girls and super-helpful.  You never had to ask her to do anything.  She always anticipated what you needed and jumped right in.  She really helped dial down the stress for Mommy on this trip...

More baby toes...
Stella had such a great time swimming with Daddy...
See...
what...
I...
mean?
Cille is at the stage where she likes to get into the pool and out of the pool...
She did some lounging...

She thinks that she can swim, and never notices that we're holding her up...



Action shots...

Madison knew I wanted to take a picture of Cille jumping so she took her to the other side of the pool so I could get a picture of Cille's face.  HOW AWESOME IS THAT?!  I am attributing all of Madison's perfection to the fact that she had a wonderful 7th grade English teacher, of course...

Beach time!
Stella had tons of fun letting Daddy throw her over the waves...


This kid is a beach baby if there ever was one...


Look!  A beached whale!  Just kidding; it's actually just me and Watts getting in a little beach time...
Stella opted for "sassy pose" in this one...

Cille enjoys the sand more than the water...


More beach fun to come!
