beach bums

Warning: Self-indulgent vacation photos below where I gush over how cute my darling daughters are and post pictures of our sandy toes. Proceed with caution.

As much as I wanted to stay in California we decided to come home after all.
Home sweet home.
Such a needed break for us, but now I'll require a swift kick to shift back into high gear. Pretty sure I'll be having withdrawals calling Collin around noon tomorrow... You mean we can't just play in the sand all day? Ah, man.

If you could bottle up this girl's energy and sell it you would give Red Bull a run for their money. She's such a zestful, little lady who skipped around the beach all day... my sweetie. xo

Then there's Q-bear who's as silly as they come. I'm not sure what's cuter... her lisp while saying "what's that?" & "I no see," how she hides her face whenever she gets attention or that silly prance around on her tippy toes. xo


Dear Lizzy Christmas in July coming up next.

I am so glad you all had a fun vacation and a safe trip home! I, for one, simply love your self-indulgent photos and comments... just so sweet!
I almost convinced myself to attend CHA next week, but finally decided against it. BUT, on a happier note, I DID book my ticket to Utah!
Hope your high gear mode doesn't completely wear you out on day one!

Your family probably gets more out of the beach when visiting than those of us who live in SoCal b/c stuff like being at work always gets in the way.
Sandy Bottom Tip: Always bring baby powder to the beach with you. It gets that super sticky black sand off like magic...especially in those sensitive areas hidden by diapers!

Hi there! I've recently stumbled upon your blog, and have to say that you are an inspiration!! I'm sure a million people have asked and you've already answered, but what kind of camera/editing are you using here? You're pictures are amazing...and what a beautiful fam! Thank you for the glimpse into your life!

Love your photos. I need to go back and find your photo editing secret to making your kiddos "pop" in the photos. Your photos are always magical, and somehow you capture the essence of your sweet girls. Thanks for sharing!

Everytime I look at your pictures they make me smile. Your daughter has the most precious little smile, reminds me of when mine were little and so full of wonder. Thank you for sharing and brightening my day.

Ah vacation. I am so glad you guys enjoyed yourselves. Vacation and time away from the regular is so needed for everyone. Our family is in ministry and we are going away for a week in sunny San Diego. We so need this time together away. Love the photos Lizzy!
