Our Beach Trip

One of my little brothers lives with his wife and son in Singapore, where he teaches at an International School. It has been 3 years since they were in the States visiting, so to celebrate their brief visit this summer, we rounded up the troops, rented 2 houses at the beach and spent a few days together.

This is ALL of us 5 years ago on our last family beach trip (my parents, 4 siblings, and various spouses and significant others):

And 5 years later... here we ALL are (an additional adult significant other and SIX grandkids under the age of 3 1/2):

My parents with all the babies:

Since it is mostly non-family that read this blog, I won't inundate you with any more photos of my extended family members. Here is MY little family enjoying the Oregon Coast:





And THIS... my very favorite spot of the entire trip:

I was holding Donny on my lap while looking at these. As soon as the pic of Jack and Katie in the car came up, Donny said, "Katie?"

Precious pictures, what wonderful family memories. What a blessing for those babies to have grandparents that have fun with them. Have a great rest of the week. P :)
