This year for the first time in several years, all my family (aunts, uncles, cousins, parents, sister, nieces, kids) got together and headed to the beach. This used to be something we did pretty regularly, but as we've all gotten older and the family has grown, it's been much more difficult to coordinate schedules. This was also the first time Marcus and I have gone with the entire family after having kids...what a different experience it was now that we have two kids to take care of!
I don't think I can put into words how very much we enjoy being together with everyone. I can honestly say that I would rather be with my family than anyone else and that we always seem to have a good time when together. Now that's not to say that we don't sometimes get into little "disagreements", but fortunately these are few and far between. We had a great weekend spending time on the beach, walking on the pier, playing in the ocean, eating out, riding the carnival rides at the square, having family devotions, chasing the kids, and just spending time together. Here are a few pictures of our weekend:

Mom, Dad, Kristy, Wilson, Kammie, Kestler, Richard, Hannah, Ky, Karl, Kristian, Kaley, Daniel, Kaydan, Kelsey, Marcus, Karsyn and Mack- we had the BEST time. Let's do it again soon!
