Lower 48 Part 2

I have finally found time to post more lower 48 pictures. We visited a friend of the grandparents who had horses.

After a few days in Mom and Dad's hometown we went to meet Daddy at his class location and then it was off to the beach for a few days with some other  Grandparents and Aunts and Uncles and Cousins!

First time walking on the beach and stepping foot in the Atlantic Ocean. They had seen it but not been in it. We prefer to travel outside of Alaska in the winter to give us a break from the winter weather.

Baby Blessing and I on the beach. We were tired that evening from driving and other travel related tirednesses.

Our family enjoying the ocean. I really forgot how much I enjoy the ocean, the sounds and smells and sights of the beach! Also, we kept all the Blessings from getting sunburns but Daddy got a little burn on the shoulders after a day in the pool with the Blessings and I got a little pink on the legs near the end of our trip.

I love this picture of my Dad and the three older Blessings.

Our time at the beach was short but most of our little visits with family were short, three or four days here and two or three days there.


May the Lord find us faithful.


  1. THANKS for dropping's funny, I was just thinking about you yesterday (and miss you). Hope all is well. It was fun hearing about your lower 48 trip. Ahhh, horses and the Atlantic Ocean, nothing could be better -- I'm with you, I just Love the Atlantic! Glad you were able to have a nice trip and a good visit with family & friends. Thanks for sharing all the photos.

    I see you are getting cool up there - 29 this early morning, burrrr. It puts MN in perspective. For the most part, we have had such a cool spring and summer here in MN - I told Jeff this morning that I think we are entering another Ice Age :).

    Have a good rest of the week! I'll be back.

  2. Some how I missed all your pics from your trip. I am so glad to hear you had a great time. Lots of fun pics! Thanks for sharing them.
