Gifts at the Beach (Multitude Monday, Take 325)

Last week we received too many gifts to recount here, in the midst of a family vacation to the beach! We joined my parents and some extended family for a few days on Hilton Head Island. It was the boys' first time to see the ocean (well, Elijah was there when he was 10 months old, but that didn't count as a vacation for anyone, trust me!) and we made so many wonderful memories. A few photos to illustrate the blessings...

Wow, your hair has gotten so long again!

What beach did you go to?

Amy said...

yes, it has...I was going to get it cut last fall but couldn't get an appointment and then realized if I let it grow a little more I could donate again. it's long enough now but I don't want a super-short cut in the summer because I like to be able to put it up when it's hot...so I'll wait and chop this fall.

we went to Hilton Head Island--the North Forest Beach area.
