Spring Pictures 2017 {Jekyll Island}

When we were trying to decide where to take our annual Spring family pictures this year, the beach seemed like the obvious choice since it is so close.  However, deciding which beach wasn't so easy.  While Tybee Island is our closest beach, it isn't always a great photography spot.  We heard good things about Jekyll Island about an hour away and knew that Driftwood Beach had become a relatively well-known attraction thanks to the filming of the popular series The Walking Dead.  I liked the uniqueness of the area with the driftwood and debris that washes ashore here.  This island is unique in that most of it is a state park now.  You do have to pay to get onto the island, but it is still pretty cheap.  I assume residents do get passes to enter free of charge.  Driftwood Beach was nice for pictures and the other public beaches have great amenities for beach goers so I am sure we will revisit this beach many times.  For our attire, I had found some cute little suspenders and gingham ties in the Dollar Spot bins at Target.  The boys all needed new shorts.  Evan had some nice coral red shorts so I wanted the other boys to have some too.  During Childrens Place's annual sale, I snagged the other boys' shorts for a steal.  So coral and light blue became the colors for this year's Spring pictures.  I had actually found a dress earlier on sale at the Abercrombie outlet store.  Yes, I was surprised anything in that store still fit me too.  Haha!  I haven't actually worn or shopped at Abercrombie since college.  I had just ventured into the store out of curiousity while visiting the outlets in Pooler so it was all just a happy coincidence that the dress went with the color scheme.  That's just how we do things.

Mattox did a great job playing and climbing and acting like a busy toddler.

I just love these boys!

These two are becoming quite a pair.  Mattox follows Brody everywhere and wants to do everything he does.  Yes, sometimes those things aren't always good things.  Ha!

Evan just continues to be an amazing big brother with all of his baby brothers.

Oh, I do love my little baby boy.  I hate how quickly time is passing with him.

This shot of the boys walking together just makes me smile.  I hope they always hold hands and help one another.

Of course, I can't take our family portraits now without adding Mattie to them.  She is always with us. I can't believe she is almost 4 years old.
