Look where we went.....


Daytona Beach, Florida




























This was another day of first for not just Wesley. We haven't been to the beach in 10 years. So today was the first time Jonathan, Stephen, William, and Wesley have ever seen the beach. James has been to the beach, but not with us he came with my parents 3 years ago. So to say we had fun today would be a BIG understatement! Arthur and I had 2 cameras going and took....over 400 pictures in 4 hours. I'd like to share at least a few 150 or so... but I felt you might get bored. I will have to worn you that more beach pictures will be coming :)
Years ago we loved coming to the beach. Madison was 15 months old the last time we were at the beach. Life and has had many twists and turns over the past 10 years, that has kept us from coming back. It was a beautiful day, and one that you couldn't help but see God's handy work every where you turned. I told Arthur this was the best day ever, and if we left for home tomorrow I'd hold tons of memories.

What fun pictures....... exciting. I wish I had known you were going there- there is a great little place where they rehab sea turtles. Mike and I go there everytime we are at Daytona- we stay in Ormond Beach right beside Daytona when we go to the beach. One of my favorite places. Glad it was a great day for you all. What fun! Thanks for sharing- I'd love to see ALL the pictures. The food crew missed you guys- an adventure- some how we ended up short hamburger buns..... :) but all ended well! Love you guys.

Looks like a fun day! Hope the rest of your time in FL has such great weather. As I'm typing this, it's 35 degrees in Murfreesboro!!

Oh, and by the way, share as many pictures as you want. I don't think anyone could get bored with your amazing family!

i want to go to the beach . . .trade you for my papers? you know you want to. ;)

also, the name thing in the sand is REALLY cool . . . but how long did that take? did you use a stick? how did you not get footprints all over the place?

glad Y'ALL get to have fun in november!

I love those pictures. That is very creative and I bet took some time to do!
Hope everyone had lots of fun and the drive wasn't that bad.

Looks like fun!
I can tell you I wish I was at a beach right now instead of in a snow bank :) Maybe someday we will skip some winter and head south!
