More Beach Traffic...

Susie's parents live at the beach... so we were a pit stop between Spartanburg and the beach.

The girls stayed a couple of days and we had!!!
Stay tuned for pics from our little photoshoot at the beautiful
Hartsville Kalmia Gardens.

The three cuties had a ball playing with these huge punch balloons. I wish the pic was a little more clear, but it was nighttime and they were RUNNING and JUMPING and PUNCHING everywhere, so this was the best I got... there was a lot of excitement in the room!
This is about two seconds after they arrived:

"Cousins...giant balloons... can it get any better than this?!"

Can you see the expressions on these little faces?
Sheer Joy. Delight. Exuberance. Preciousness.

We read. We love to read. But after a few pages, Benson is usually DONE. One of the bazillion things I love about the girls is that I don't think they would EVER tire of reading book after book after book.
Yet another good reason to borrow them every once in while...
Peer pressure for Benson to SIT STILL. :)

I don't even need to say what I'm thinking here...

I was rifling through pics from a while back looking for this one for comparison purposes... and I just realized....

This one was taken on April 1, 2008
and the one below was taken on April 1, 2010.

What are the odds?! Same date, EXACTLY two years apart!

What a wonderful two years it has been,
watching these two grow in size and love ☺

April 1, 2010

This moment makes me feel like I'm at camp again.
I love camp. And I love bedtime stories. And I love these people...
There's a lot of love here...

Snug as a bug!
They slept like this all night long!

And I wanted to call Him Grandpa Joe and her Grandma Josephine.

Name that movie...



  1. That's willy wonka and the chocolate factory! HA! Do I get a prize?

  2. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory...Or Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.(one is the newer version)

  3. Way to go, Beth! You win the gold star! And Kathy.. you get the silver :) Thanks for playing guys :)

    We watched that movie a total of 105,000 times growing up... I always thought that part was so weird :) It's burned into my brain :)
