Beach trip number 1

 We took our first, of I am sure many, trips down to Jamaica Beach this past week.
My parents recently purchased a trailer on the beach, which allows you direct access to a private beach that is mostly desolate..... the above picture is our view on a Monday morning.

 The kids played in the sand, went out on boogie boards, and rolled around in the waves.

 While the parents sat back and took in the view of God's beautiful handiwork.

We got to check a few things off our 100 summer fun activities list, which felt productive....but that was about the only productive thing we did while we were down there.

I know Galveston is not the most exotic location, but you really can't beat it for a fun relaxing weekend getaway.

I can not wait to go back.

Bad Boyz

Kai played flag football this year.  Their team name was Bad Boyz, and they unfortunately lived up to the description.  They only won one game, and it happened to be the last game of the season. 

 I don't know about you, but I thought that if they only had a few more games they would have been the comeback team of the league.  They really had their stuff together this game.  

It has been a pleasure getting to know your boys this season.  Ryan loved assistant coaching, and Kai discovered  his love for the game. 

 Thanks Coach Ray

If you want some pictures, please email me the number, and I will send it to you.
