At the beach!

We have had beautiful warm weather around these parts lately, so we decided to take advantage of it and go the beach on Saturday! When we woke up Saturday, it was cool and cloudy! After a week of 75-80 degrees, it was cold on our beach day! But by 11 it had warmed up, so we still went, and by the time we got to the beach it was beautiful!

We learned long ago that going to the beach by ourselves (just Glenn, Violet, and I) isn't really that fun. It will be when Violet is a little older, but for now someone has to sit on the blanket with her. And the other person then has to play on the beach by himself.

So this time we invited some friends! They are in our ward, and have a little boy who is four months older than Violet. They had fun playing together! Before Christmas break (the last time we saw them) Violet was still too little to be very fun for Parker to play with. This time she could sit up and play with his toys, and they were very interested in each other!
I brought a picnic, and we stayed a couple of hours. Glenn and Paul played whiffle ball and Courtney and I played with the babies. All in all, it was a wonderful way to spend a Saturday afternoon!

Oh yeah, Paul is the other member of the bishopric, besides the bishop. And Glenn got his call like an hour before we left for the beach, so they had fun talking about Glenn's new calling!


  1. Violet looks like she was having fun at the beach. She is such a doll. Bishopric, huh? Go Glenn :)

  2. Wow - great pics! How come they are so clear? It seems like some of the pics you take with your phone are all blurry?
