Where is the summer going so fast? We ended the month of July by taking two of our granddaughters (8 and 10 years old--daughters of Son #2) to the beach for a few days. We had a wonderful time, lots of laughs, some fun at the beach, swimming pool time, and great visiting! Those two girls were so polite and well-behaved that it made our trip all that more enjoyable.
The girls wanted me to paint a picture of them like I did when we took two of the girls to the beach three years ago. I like this shot below for the colors, the waves and the sky. They made sure I took a bunch of pictures to use as a guide for my painting.
The girls also enjoyed early morning walks on the beach where they gathered sea shells and sand crabs (Eew!) so they could examine their pinchers and blue eyes and then let them go again.
On the way home from the beach we stopped off to visit Son #1 and family, and then went on to visit Son #4 and family. The cousins all had a grand time seeing each other.
