Beach time with the Meyer's

As you all are well aware of by now, we LOVE the beach. Everything about the beach excites us. From the sand squishing between your toes (even though lately we have barely felt the sand between our toes because we are running to not get our tootsies burnt - lol), to the smell of the ocean, to exploring and finding new treasures. The beach is and always will be a very important part of our family times together. June 27th we had the privilege of going with our friends, The Meyer's. What a wonderful, sweet couple they are and it has been a joy getting to know them better and the best part - they have a little girl Regen who is Kira's age and a young boy, Nathaniel who is a few years older than Andrew but plays with him so kindly and is a wonderful role model for Andrew. Together they have so much fun! We, as parents, also enjoy the great conversations that come about between us. How wonderful to have Christian friends encouraging you in your spiritual walk and in life in general. And to top it all off, have the same interests and values that you have! From Jim enjoying jiu jitsu and training with Dave to DeAnna being a teacher at the kids school and sharing in the same concerns that I have as a wife, parent, and woman. What a blessing it was to spend the day with them -- we look forward to so many more!! You can see from the pictures, we had so much fun just exploring the beauty of God's creation and all that was around us, and of course, had some fun playing and goofing off too :)
