Family Beach Trip: Part II

Just a few more from the beach…

We spent one day at Busch Gardens.  Since Rayna couldn’t ride most things, she and I walked around together where Ross and Matthew could enjoy the bigger rides.  (As-only-a-mom-would-note:  Ross rode his first upside-down rollercoaster!  Yeah!) 

CORRECTION:  I said Rayna and I ‘walked’ around together; however, there was NO walking on Rayna’s part!  Even though I carried her (and my camera and backpack) six straight hours, I honestly enjoyed it.  Each time my back started aching and neck started popping, I just thought, “This might be the last year she will let me carry her.”   While Ross & Matthew were riding water rides and roller coasters, Rayna and I had frozen lemonaids and a lot of deep conversations about kitty-cats, lip gloss and Dora.      

 Just a few of my favorite snapshots…

  • Ross & Rayna just a few minutes after waking up from their naps…
  • Matthew taking the kids to the same ice-cream shop his parents took him to when he was little
  • …HOURS at the pool


Matthew spotted a beautiful tree that would be perfect for a picnic.  Aside from getting over 15 mosquito bites in ten minutes, it was a great spot!  As always, Rayna started picking flowers.  I wasn’t quick enough to get it in focus, but I thought it was still a cute picture.

Counting down the days for another beach trip…

Ross and Rayna's Dad - I love these two kids so much! They are such a blast! Christy, thank you for always taking pictures of Ross and Rayna. My favorite has to be Ross with his arm around Rayna at the pool.

Family Beach Trip 2011 » Christy Martin Photography - […] Most of the time, I play.  But, sometimes, I just take my camera out and take in their moments…      Does this bridge look familiar?  If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you probably saw it in last year’s beach trip! […]
