Myrtle Beach Fun!

We just got back from the beach. It was such a relaxing and much needed trip. I love taking pics and took 699 of them..ha. There was only one lens was foggy or dirty in a ton of them. :-( I was sooo disappointed when I looked at them...guess we better pack up and head back to the beach to get some more pics! So...for what it's are some unedited..foggy, pics of our fun at the beach this year.

It was a joy to see the girlies enjoying playing together on the beach!

Lily Pie got to spend some quality time with Popaw. The girls also spent a lot of time with Momaw and Aunt Deana...but we have promised one another that we will not post bathing suit pics from the neck I don't have any of those. :-(

Skim boarding rocks!

This is the banana boat crew! (bryson's blue eyes are so sensitive to the sun)

Derek Andrew, my nephew is getting so big..he'll be a FRESHMEN this year!

Darci and Brennan...inseparable!

One day Lola Joy put her arm around Lily Hope and said..."best friends"!!
Melt my heart!!!

I told the boys to play around and I would snap some pics...these boys are crazy! They were totally hammin' it up!!

Bryson was laughing so much fun!

Here's a pic of the whole clan!

We were so thankful to spend this year's vacation as a family of 6. We have spent the past 4 vacations dreaming of our family finally being together...and this year we felt complete! So thankful to God that we are finally all together. So thankful for the family He knitted together. So thankful for the miracle of adoption! Is God tugging at your heart to adopt, but you're ignoring the still small voice? You don't have enough money? You don't have it all together? What will people think? How will this affect your bio kids?? I can guarantee you will ROCK YOUR WORLD...You'll NEVER have ENOUGH $ but the Lord will provide what He favors...No one has it all together..but I can do ALL things through Christ who gives me strength..WHO CARES WHAT PEOPLE THINK...It will open your bio kids eyes and help them to look to others' needs instead of the needs of themselves...It WON'T always be PEACHY or PERFECT. It is often messy. There is brokenness. There is pain. But God will be FAITHFUL to complete the work He begins in you. Will you STEP UP for an Orphan??

Be the HOPE!
