Not as much laboring on our labor day...

So, al did the great labor of love for their labor day, and we kinda took the weekend off...
to have a cold drink at the beach with the fam!
we had SO much fun seeing my brothers and sis in law and the parents. it was so relaxing and just fun to catch up.

the kids LOVED the beach and the water.
this kid-my youngest, thought she could swim as good as aves (duh) and never had her floaties on at all. and she would just jump in the water! no matter if any one else was in the water with her...she is crazy!!
but, even though she jumps freely into the pool, the ocean was another story...i had to sneak her in a little at a time and let the water get on our toes to ease her in...

she eventually came around...
my son had less of an issue with the beach.
we got to go on a glass bottom boat and snorkel and ben thought he was in heaven. he was obsessed with the fish! he would stomp his feet and get so excited, and then have to look away because he was so overwhelmed with excitement. hilarious. he cracked us all up. he may not be a big talker, but he definitely comes alive when he is around something he loves. some girl is probably going to have a love/hate relationship with that quality some day...

it was so gorgeous and the water was so clear! we had so much fun.
we relaxed,
took too many self portraits,
and played around.
thanks mom and dad for a great vacay. we love you!
