Our Family Beach Pictures ~ 2013

As tradition dictates, family pictures on the beach were a must.  Although we regret that we didn't do this earlier in the week before the clouds and rain moved in, we still love these pictures.  The boys wore their special big brother shirts to remember their little sister who we all missed very much on this special trip.  Of course, I imagined she was with us everywhere we went.

The boys write Mattie's name in the sand.

The boys wanted a picture with "real" lifeguards.  :-)

  1. Absolutely gorgeous family pictures. I know you were diappointed that it wasn't sunny, but I actually really like the look of the pale blue sea and the stormy skies, especially in contrast to your awesome bright blue dress. They came out just perfectly.

    1. Well, I actually had to edit them because the gray skies just made them look hazy and dull. I did think a bright color was needed on this day, and I wanted to match the boys' shirts. :-)

  2. Those are such sweet pictures! I love all of them. And I love that the boys got pictures with the lifeguard. Haha! I hardly remember seeing lifeguards when we go to the beach, but I guess they're there. Your blue dress is beautiful!

    1. One of the lifeguards didn't seem too happy about the picture taking though! Haha! I think the resort hired these lifeguards.

  3. These are lovely pictures and I like the fact that the boys wore their "Big Brother" shirts. I know you were so looking forward to taking Mattie on her first beach trip and I have been thinking of that so much as I've read your vacation posts. I've also been continuing to pray for all of you as you adjust to your new normal.

    1. Thank you, Natasha! Yes, I did want these to be a sort of tribute to her. :-)

  4. You have such a beautiful family! What great pictures. The boys wearing their big brother shirts by Mattie's name is precious.

    1. Thank you, Tracy! The name was a little hard to see in the pictures, but I thought it was a good way to bring her with us. That and my necklace of course that I wear everyday! :-)

  5. Such great photos and I love the boys wanted their photos taken with real lifeguards. Super cute! Do you guys always take your own family photos?
