We had a great time at the beach.Everyday rain was forcasted but God provided beautiful sunny weather the entire time for us. It was not muggy hot or anything perfect weather. The last day we were leaving it was so muggy so I told Robbie God provided that for the last day bc he know it would be easier leaving it all behind in the muggy humidity...but we so didn't want to leave. Vacation is the quickest time of the year it seems to just fly by. Here are a few million pictures from the beach scroll over the picture to see places and names..etc.
Rylie was a little skidish of the ocean this year and never really warmed up to the ocean, but loved the "laby Riber" aka Lazy River. She loved building sand castle and running to get water...Beckham just watched everything and he was the biggest trooper. GiGi took an extra pack and play and we put him in there for naps..he would sleep for 4 hour increments in the shade.. He did so good.I said we took him to the beach to catch up on some sleep for him.
Rylie had some sunglasses on of GiGi's and a man walked by and was trying to set her up with his son "Will" it was so funny. Will was not interested daddy was like "hey man look at her she is a doll" Will could care less..Rylie was looking at that man like he was crazy.
Christa and I got Henna tatoos to show my dad Billy Joe that they are real and he doesn't know the difference...man I thought he was going to have a heart atttack when we showed him the tatoos. He was so mad to say the least.. I just told him yesterday they were fake and he was like "I know that"..whatever it was worth the money spent to see his face...
We all had a great time, ate too much of course and too short as always...

It is so peaceful right now EVERYONE is asleep. I am trying to catch up on blog I will post pics of dedication as soon as I get time. I am so behind on blogging, so maybe I can catch up.
We had a very nice ride down considering we rode this far with a 2& 1/2 yo, 6 month old and a 13 year old. Yep, we have Christa aka "Cricka" with us. She was the official DVD changer. Beckham took several naps, Rylie just tried to hang with Cricka 'cause she is so cool;) Our drive went so much better than ever anticipated with small children. We are so proud we pray the ride back goes as well.
We got checked in and low and behold would you know that we go the exact same condo as we did last year(1216). The view is awesome(pics to follow of course). We unpacked and then was hanging in the living room trying to figure out where we were going to eat (Ellen's birthday was 25th, My sissy's is today 26th). Cricka had Beckham standing in between her legs and she let go by accident, and he fell in the floor. He hit face first and his two little razor sharp teeth cut his top lip. I thought it was NEVER going to stop bleeding. He was so upset. We had just got him dressed and he was bleeding all on the bib and was swallowing it and gagging. He was pitiful. I let him suck of ice cube for swelling, calmed him down after awhile, and then finally off to dinner. (For all the ER friends)He then started spitting up dark brown blood from it being in his belly and I said "Man if Claude Morgan saw this we would be doing NG tube;)"
He was such a trooper though...but hey ok now we can move on with vacation now that we have one little booboo out of the way...we always go back with atleast one!!
We went to get breakfast foods last pm and now just waiting on family to start stirring so we can start breakfast and head to the beach. It is not raining at this time, I pray that it stays that way for us all week long....
I never get super quiet time alone anymore, but it is in quiet times like these that you really have time to reflect on all the blessings a person has in their lives. I always give God praise for my babies and how He made me a mother. I am so thankful of how he loved us enough to entrust us with these two babies. But something I do not thank him enough for is for my husband. I am so blessed that I have Robbie in my life, he is such a God loving man, a great provider, and more important a lover/friend. He never complains about going to work or his job. He is thankful he has one in our times. He seeks God and he puts him first in his life. He loves his wife with such tenderness and loyalty. He provides and gives the children a strong father figure that they need, but loving/caring to them also. I am so blessed to have him and for those of you that have been there since the beginning of Robbie and I, you can appreciate all that we went through to get to where we are now. You may not know this about me, but I have a very strong will;) and it is not easy living with me, but Robbie manages some how;0
Hey, and also with Robbie came a great deal for some great in laws. They are not inlaws to me they are my second set of parents. They love me just as if I was a daughter, probably more than that;) Their help spans back to as far as college days when I didn't have a computer they gave me a key to their house and said "come use ours" instead of hanging out at library...till today when I need a break or run an errand they eggerly jump at the chance to keep the babies for me...they ROCK, what more can I say and those of you who know them will agree...I am blessed by them!!!
I am thankful for all of our health, our family, and CMC & family. All the things that money can't buy!! Everytime you turn on the news there is something bad happening that is why I do not watch the news anymore. Robbie keeps me updated on things I would need to know. I hate the news they say nothing but negative things. we are in such a negative world right now we need to be built up not torn down. So I try to think and pray over all the good things that God has done for us, from the cross to this beautiful ocean that I am looking at. What an amazing God to have formed all of this and us!! Everything has a purpose in this world....Do you know yours and are you living it out? Good question for the day...huh????
well gotta go I hear Daddy stirring..gotta go cook some sausage!!!! Better go help:)

We then went to Fat Cheung's and ate for mother's day with the family. It was so nice minus the one person who had issues with their food, but we will not be naming names;)
We then came home and had a relaxing rest of the day. It is so hard trying to get around to everyone's house we gave up along time ago. We ended up seeing Robbie's grandmother another day for Mother's day.
ANOTHER amazing thing that happen on Mother's Day was a little girl was born who became Margaret "Maggie" Stewart Summer was born in florida weighing 8lbs 19 inches long. The couple that I have been blogging about asking for Prayer they tried one failed attempt of IVF and then started home study for adoption. They adopted a sweet sweet baby girl from florida. They got call on monday and went and got her on tuesday...all papers signed!!! Start to finish their adoption process was less than 3 months...man when GOD moves He moves!!!! Did down in their hearts they wanted a girl but didn't list preference and then theywish the baby was born in florida bc they have family that they could stay with. BOTH were answered...God listens to all the details and IF it is his will then HE will provide in HIS time not ours which is the hardest thing to remember. I am so happy for Llyod and Leslie. Baby Maggie you have no idea how much you are loved and wanted before you were here on this earth. God has special plans for you and I am so blessed that I get to watch it all unfold for you!!
GOD is so freaking cool!!!! He shows out sometimes I think, like "Hey watch this";)

The Images of Mother
4 YEARS OF AGE - My Mommy can do anything!
8 YEARS OF AGE - My Mom knows a lot! A whole lot!
12 YEARS OF AGE - My Mother doesn't really know quite everything.
14 YEARS OF AGE - Naturally, Mother doesn't know that, either.
16 YEARS OF AGE - Mother? She's hopelessly old-fashioned.
18 YEARS OF AGE - That old woman? She's way out of date!
25 YEARS OF AGE - Well, she might know a little bit about it!
35 YEARS OF AGE - Before we decide, let's get Mom's opinion.
45 YEARS OF AGE - Wonder what Mom would have thought about it?
65 YEARS OF AGE - Wish I could talk it over with Mom.
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure she carries, or the way she combs her hair.The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, Because that is thedoorway to her heart, The place where love resides.The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, But true beauty in awoman is reflected in her soul.It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she Shows,and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!

This is Rylie's version of the video that I posted from Lincoln Brewster..she goes around singing this all the time...the sweetest voice ever!! You can even hear Robbie chime in at the end..I have a different recording of her singing it on our other blog...too cute..she was a ham this night!! It is so funny how they catch on to the little things and she sings it the way SHE wants to sing it and that is the way it is to be sung;)
She is such a blessing!! God bless and have a great night...BTW just a reminder at 1030 service at CMC we are getting Beckham dedicated!! yeah on mother's day such a blessing for us both!!! Come one come all and join us!!!
