beach bunny #2
Now that it's Thursday... I better "recap" our beach weekend before I forget. We have another big event tonight.... Miss PattyCake; she's in town and hosting a "Pajama Party" the girls (& I must admit, Justin and I) are totally pumped about it. If you don't know PattyCake... and have a child between 18 mos and 5 I highly recommend you check her out! She's great for kids and always shares the Gospel with them! I'll be sure to snap some photos and blog about our evening.
Back to our weekend. It was fantastic and I'm already looking forward to next year. We had PERFECT weather and it was a wonderful group. We ended up not going down until Saturday morning (which made things easier on me) and the fact that Erika (& Chance) took the girls Saturday night was also a tremendous help. Justin helped lead worship on Saturday night and Sunday morning and the fact that I could just sit in my chair and enjoy & participate peacefully was such a ROYAL treat. I'm sure it would have been great if the girls were there too but it was nice not to have to be chasing them around. Erika spent several hours with us on Saturday and then rejoined us (w/the girls) Sunday afternoon. The Laguna Beach Retreat center was so MUCH better than I expected. We were "gulfside" with an incredible view and heated pool! I'll include a few pictures for those who may not believe me! :)
the "view" from our balcony! it was beautiful! "MommaSissy" (& us)
there's very little sweeter than "Raiger" kisses... she doesn't give them... but she receives so well!
