Memorial Day Family

{we used to be able to take a "stair step" photo of us in age order. we have recently given up trying because the boys are getting too tall}

I love the spontaneous adventures my family goes on. Sometimes we pack and lunch and leave the house with no set destination, and most trips end with ice cream cones. On Memorial Day, we visited the original L.L.Bean store and had a picnic at the beach.

I love sitting back and watching everyone. The boys can be trying to beat each other's running time then turn around and build sand castles with a little sister. The little girls jump the waves together. Zach, the tallest one in the family, spins all of us around on the merry-go-round. Lydia is so patient with the little girls and all of their questions. Abbie and Zach will talk technology and tv shows seamlessly while the rest of us are mostly confused by the terms and subjects. My parents revel in the fact that all of us are home for the summer. 


  1. Aw, reminds me of all my family's crazy spontaneous trips. Your photos have so much fun energy. Have a wonderful summer.

  2. Thank you so much! I hope you have a wonderful summer, as well.


Thank you for stopping by and brightening my day with a little bit of sunshine!
