Beach Photos 2005

Bryan and I with Mason, our youngest, at the beach last August.

Not my best photo, but at least I am in this one! More often than not, I am the one taking pictures. A few photos of the kids from our trip to the coast this past summer. We spent part of the day at Battery Russell, Fort Stevens. August is just before the "fall birthday season" at our house, so the kids whose ages are listed as almost are now officially the ages listed. (This is very important to Gavin and Sarah, especially. Sirena isn't too excited about 8, but Gavin loves being 10, and Sadie tells anyone who will listen that she is two.)

Mara Anne, age 11 going on 25

Gavin, almost 10! (in this photo)

Sirena, almost 8 as of this pic

Madelyn, 6 1/2

Sadie Eleanor, almost 2 (in photo)

And finally, my favorite picture of the family from the weekend...


  1. Oh my Goodness!!! Sadie is two, and look how big little Mason is!!! I was just wondering what your little guy might look like since I haven't seen him since we left in June, unbelievable!!! (Can you tell I am thoroughly amazed? I am!)
    Love you guys!
    P.S. It's snowing here! The kids are pulling out the sleds as I type.

  2. Yep, Sadie is two. She is such a character! A few days after her birthday, I asked her, "How old are you, little girl?" She replied, "I'm six!" "Really?" I asked. She thought for a moment and then said, "No, I'm not six. I'm thirty. I'm old."

    I almost fell over laughing. She is very articulate for two! Too articulate at times, eh?


  3. Wow, I didn't know you had a blog! LOL! Glad to know it now! Good to hear from you, too! I was beginning to wonder if you had fallen off the face of the earth - also known as busy homeschooling and raising a family! LOL! Same goes for Dana, I still haven't heard from her in ages! LOL!
