Family Beach Trip: Part I

We were able to get away to the beach for a few days over Memorial Day weekend.  Aside from a quick trip to San Diego when she was just a baby, this was Rayna’s first time to truly experience the sand and water. 

Our schedule was something like this: 
Jumping into the pool over and over…

Then, heading back to the beach…

Although dinner ran late and it was waaay past the kid’s bedtime, we used our last night to go back to the beach one last time.  Needless to say, we didn’t waste time by going to the room to get bathing suits! 

Rayna didn’t seem to mind.
The warm wind was blowing.
The golden sun was setting.

I wish I could have frozen that moment in time.


As Matthew and Rayna got out of the ocean one evening, I stayed behind for a second to shoot this picture.  I love it because of the glow and the rainbow coming down on Ross… 

There are a few more pictures I want to share from our trip!  Check back in a few days for the rest!

Hannah Sims - I just showed Jason these pictures and his comment was-
“Whoever thinks they’re gonna marry Nayna … yea, they’re not going to. They may make it past Christy and Matthew’s approval but I don’t think anyone will ever be good enough!” (aww!)
