nc 2010

Once again, I'm at a loss for words on how to describe our two weeks out east. Best trip ever? Perfection? Over too soon? All of the above. We had the best time. I miss the humidity. I miss swimming every day. I miss being with everyone. I miss showering outside everyday (Seriously, nothing beats the outside showers under every beach house on Sunset Beach). Quinn would ask us every night while we were getting him and Max ready for bed, "We not go home, right? We stay here." It made me want to bawl every time. But, it's always good to get back into the swing of things (right?). Vacation is important, and so is every day life. It can't always be a party. But it sure was fun.

Here are some shots of our trip. I didn't take many pictures since every time I took the lense off the camera it would fog up. Sweet, delicious humidity. But I'm sure the family will be sharing pictures soon. When I get them I'll post them.


Riding in the back of Poppy's truck.




Finding some lovely dresses with my sisters. The best part about this picture is when this lady was asking us where we were going to wear these beautiful dresses and my mom said, "It might be hard for them to get away. They've got 12 kids between the 3 of them."
That kind of puts things in perspective. Wouldn't you agree?



I tried teaching Juli the art of making ugly faces.


What can I say? She's a rookie. Ugly just doesn't come naturally to her.
I, on the other hand, have a gift.




And Max has perfected the art of being cute.
That's Quinn in the background running blissfully in the surf.



Brothers.


Totally eligible for AwkwardFamilyPhotos.com. Quinn's not wearing any pants, Max is.... checking things out. And Zach and I.... Well, we weren't supposed to be in the picture at all. We're just being ourselves.



Jumping for joy.



Lathered up and ready to head down to the beach.
He is so handsome, I have a hard time wrapping my brain around it.



When can we go back???

Those pictures are hilarious. I think my favorites all seem to involve Quinn in the background. :)

I love the pics! Yes, Juli needs more practice with the ugly faces.

Your family is so blasted adorable I can't stand it. Quinn is getting to be a handsome kid.

What I really want to see, are the late night swimming photos...you know the ones I mean. :)

The worst part of vacation is coming home!!! Looks like you guys had a great time. I have missed seeing you guys, we have been down a couple times over the last couple weeks and your cars are never there. But we officially got moved out this weekend-so sad
