Another Beach Trip!

I'm late posting these pictures. We went to the beach again last week, but since Ann Catherine had surgery on Monday I haven't had a chance to post any pictures.

This time was great because Daddy got to go too! Plus, it was warmer so the girls really got to enjoy the beach.

What a difference a year makes! Last summer, AC hated the beach. She didn't want her feet to touch the sand so we had to carry her everywhere. Then she wouldn't get out of her chair to play in the sand. Not fun.

This year, she loved it!! She especially loved the ocean. She would walk to the water and fill her bucket up all by herself.

Lily wasn't as crazy about it. She wasn't as bad as AC last year, though. For the most part, she liked taking walks or sitting in her beach chair and playing in the sand with her shovel. I'm thinking that this time next year she'll be loving it like Ann Catherine (at least I hope so)!

My neice Ally's birthday is next week and we celebrated it while we were there. Ann Catherine loves Ally so much and really looks up to her. We had a great time celebrating her birthday.

At dinner that night, Chris grabbed balloons for all of the girls. When we got back to the condo, Ally wanted to send her balloon to Melissa. Ann Catherine decided she did too. So, we went out on the balcony and Ally and Ann Catherine kissed their balloons and let them go. It was so sweet. Ally was 6 when Melissa died, and she was really touched by her death. She always asks me questions about her, and never forgets her. It means a lot to me.

Hope you all had a great Spring Break!
