Wednesday evening we headed to the beach per four-year-old Jayden’s request. We also used that time to photograph a special announcement :-).

      Aww thank you! The beach is such a peaceful place. We’re gonna get a little tent so we can set up and stay a while.

      Thank you! He’s going to be such a big help! Hopefully he’ll be more concerned with his new responsibilities rather than being “overshadowed”.

      Thanks, Shelly! Remember when I was trying to buy a treadmill because I thought I was out of shape? It was the pregnancy creeping up on me! LOL! The first 3 months were something else, but I’m doing much better!
