My first lost tooth!

I’m going to be six years old next week, and I finally lost my first tooth! I’ve been trying to get up the courage to have Mommy pull it out for days, since it’s just been “hanging on”, and today was the day! I have been SO excited to get money from Mommy AND the Tooth Fairy to go and get a toy from the store! Even though I’ve been so excited, Mommy’s been pretty sad that her baby is growing up… Sad smile

Our beach trip with friends: Day 4

We had such an awesome week at the beach house with our good friends, and can’t wait to go back! Thank you to Miss Sara, Kinsey, Lexie & Mollie for the awesome memories! One last walk on the beach with Mom before we headed out for home…

Our beach trip with friends: Day 3

We woke up to a beautiful morning and got ready for the busy day ahead of us! We had some more crabbing to do, kayaking to the sandbar, riding the waves at the beach, and even watching the dolphins swim in the bay!

73

Miss Sara took us out to the sandbar at low tide and we got to go by kayak!

74

Lexie and Ben waited patiently for trip two…

76

77

We loved “walking on the water”!

78

83

Mom took the kayak out for a spin and went back to get us … we all had fun taking our turn paddling!

79

84

We even managed to all get back together…without tipping over!

85

After our morning adventures, we had lunch and waited for Mollie to wake up from her nap…

85a (2)

As soon as she woke up, we were off to the beach to play in the waves and try boogie boarding!

86

87

The waves were CRAZY and it was hard just to stand up! It was good balancing practice for Ben!

Emily tried her hand at it but holding your nose and riding the board sideways didn’t work so well…

114

Miss Sara helped Emily learn to Boogie board, but her first run didn’t go so great…

103

107

After she pulled Emily out from the water, Emily lost her goggles and Miss Sara lost her sunglasses to the waves… That caused QUITE a bit of drama for a while…

108

109

She got back on and kept trying though!

124

127

Miss Sara and Mom tried to ride a few waves too, but Mom didn’t do so well…

Abby was definitely persistent with the waves, and became the best rider of the day!

We had some quiet movie time after the beach and all loved snuggling up together!

150

And Mollie got her sink bath to get rid of all that sand!

Uncle Paul came back over so we could see the crabs he caught in his trap!

152

We got NINE beautiful blue crab!

We even found some big hermit crabs and conch shells!

Not everyone was interested in going near them though…

Uncle Paul took it even further and tried to make a crab earring! Thankfully they weren’t cooperating though!

After playing with the crabs, we watched a storm roll in…

We even saw a beautiful FULL rainbow after the storm!

While we hung out on the dock for the sunset, we got to see a whole pod of dolphins swimming around!
