pass the kleenex

i am over looking at my last post but don't really have anything exciting to blog about. the girls in our house are sick. if it was st. patrick's day today we would be set, cause our noses are leaking green. 
and now, to help get that lovely image out of your mind, here are some more pics from last thursdays newport adventure. i love this first one that luke took, the bike was just there in the sand like that.
(and i really like this one too)

Those pictures are awesome! Makes me want to go to the beach sooo bad! I think we are gonna have to make a trip down there next month. I am glad you posted about being a bad mom- which by the way I always look at your blog and all the fun you and your girls have and think you are such a good mom and wish i was more like that with my kids. Anyways, i really appreciated the quotes and just to hear that I am not the only one that isn't a perfect parent and would just like 1 hour of no kid time!

You are making me miss CA so bad. I am so jealous. I want to go to the beach and lay in the land, listen to the waves and fall asleep. I love the pics!!!

Those are some great photo's. I was thinking I would be getting a new camera for my birthday, but really what I need is some talent :).

Sorry to hear of your loss of nap time. Hopefully you can get a break some other way. Enjoy bedtime!

What fun pictures! You are such a great photographer! I wish I had that talent...and your camera. Sorry you guys have been sick! Max just finished up a horrible flu bug. Not fun. Good thing this season is almost over! Hang in there :)

I have 2 sick kids and a husband since last Saturday, I feel your pain! Love the photos! When will we ever hang or surf???

and i just read your other post about velzy going to bed and having patience. those quotes hit me hard. i have a tendency to yell and i feel like the spirit is no longer there. sad. and i can tell by the way my kids respond that i need to try harder at being more patient and not raising my voice in anger. i have those moments too, when i am so over trying and am tired. moms get tired. i think the key is just keeping the bigger picture in mind and when you feel like you're losing it, it's dad's turn or just go into your room for a few minutes to cool down. i need to heed my own advice. i have been having a trying time with faith lately and sometimes i see her acting like me when i get mad. i am trying to change my reactions and pray for more patience everyday. we are all here trying to become perfect. we are all still human and make mistakes, too. it's a good thing our children are quick to forgive.
