Four years ago we started a tradition of going to Coronado with nine other families. Our kids think it’s the greatest thing in the entire planet to get to hang out with so many other kids they love in such a gorgeous place.
Us parents don’t think it’s so bad either.
A few of the other families I didn’t get time to post when I posted back on the 4th:
I’m mad I didn’t get there in time to get pictures of all of them.
Lu was frustrated about that too:)
These next pictures are compliments of Kiley, one of the awesome-photographer teenagers there with us who we love.
Pretty good, right?
After taking a year off from the sand castle tradition, Denny started it right back up again.
This time the Eiffel Tower was the goal.
I think they did a pretty good job.
Max missed a couple days because of his junior national volleyball tournament in Reno.
We dearly missed him and were so glad when he got to join us. I must say he was pretty psyched to get there too.
He went in to give Claire a big hug and stepped on her toe weird which broke it forcing it to bend over all skiwumpus.
She still managed a smile, however, when we got the Burger Lounge.(Who wouldn’t?)
The kids love to hang out in this little atrium place.
How grateful we are for all these good people we get to catch up with each year. Thanks Masons for making it happen!!
How fun! I have to say I'm a bit jealous. We've been saving to go to San Diego and can't wait. I want to live in a world where everyone is stylish, beautiful, and rich too! What's everyone's secret?! Haha!
Those pictures are lovely. We love all the light!
Finally summer arrived in Germany as well:
Love from Germany,
Birdy and Bambi
Beautiful. What is the game they are playing with that giant stretchy band green thing? Looks like something our youth at church would like to do, or at least the Young Women!
Oh and I am just posting again because I forgot to check the box for follow-up comments. LOL.
I just love your blog!!! I can't check it everyday because reading just one isn't enough, so I usually check it at the end of the week so I have much more to read or view (photos)!! I was the one who emailed you not too long ago with the quote about that 'pulse of your family'…I still love that one and reflect on it a lot =) While seeing this blogpost I had two thoughts…the first was, how awesome it is for you and your family to get along with so many families…that must be uplifting and peaceful, the next one was, you guys know the most gorgeous families!! How proud they all must be of each other =)
We love the burger lounge 🙂 and Coronado. We are on our way back to Mesa from Coronado as I type this. Have you ever made it over to Point Loma to check out the lighthouse and the tide pools? Glad you had such an awesome time. 🙂
