two birthdays

We had a birthday at the beginning of August, and there's another coming up next week. 
For two amazing guys. 

I didn't overlook posting about them, but life has been increasingly crazy and every moment has been full.
And when you get to be our ages, trivial things like birthday blog posts don't matter much. 

Its everything else that makes what we have so strong.

Josh is 19. Caleb, soon to be 17. 
They have become such amazing guys. 
But it would take a whole 'nother post to tell all their qualities.

They've really been there for me...with brotherly protection, the best humor, 
and advice when I needed it most.

I couldn't be a prouder or luckier sister to consider them 
two of my closest friends.

Happy Birthday Guys.

to the beach

9 of us. In one car. The day was off to a good start. :)


The beach was much colder than we expected...

Looks like a good time to get some reading done.

They were making everyone laugh :)

A little climber. 

And these two right here???

They're so much fun. 

And so photogenic. :)

I was really glad I got to snap a few pictures.
One of my favorite parts of the day. :)

It was really, really cold. 
The girls were being little pink pebbles, in a effort to stay warm.

Snack time. :)

We're going to miss this.

Pushup competitions...

it got pretty intense.

Johnny has some amazing muscles!

And Andrew has...some amazing arms. 

Sisters and friends.

8 of 10. So far. 

It was a little insane with how cold it was, 
but how could we go to the beach and not get wet?

"Sometimes, right in the middle of everyday life, 
love gives you a fairytale."

Dinner on the way home.

Everyone slept on the way home. 
Playing at the beach is exhausting.

And it took a while to wake up. :)

We all agreed that despite the miserable weather, it was our best beach trip yet. We had so much fun.
Amazing how the other things don't really matter, 
when you're with the right people.
