July at the beach.

Once again we were blessed to be able to spend some time down at Amelia Island in Florida. (Also known as "my happy place".)

Owen was not too sure what to think about the ocean at first.

But he eventually warmed up enough to get his feet wet at least.

Claire enjoyed the waves but mostly preferred to be on the sand, building castles or finding shells.

Catching some waves...

This girl right here would have stayed in the ocean the whole time if we let her.

Water break!

Owen loved playing ball with Daddy on the beach.

Not that pictures can convey the sounds that were occurring, but in these photos AK was screaming at the very top of her lungs. It was so much fun, because there aren't many places where she can actually do that, but in the ocean is definitely one of them.

Thinking about it...


A little fishing lesson...

Watching the fishing on the pier...

Then they saw a man actually catch a fish and start to clean it...

"the dead fish face"

The POOL! This was definitely Claire's favorite place to be!

One day we went to the Jacksonville Zoo!

The kids got to feed a giraffe!

Enjoying the petting zoo...

And the splash pad!!!

And this was AK's happy place - on the boogie board with Dad.

Claire preferred gathering shells...

And Owen preferred sitting on his jeep.

Claire did try the board once.

But just once.

AK eventually joined us back on the sand.

And here's the picture that proves that I was on the trip too!
