Photos from our Beach Trip

We had a wonderful time at the beach. Thanks Moores! It was just beautiful there, and we had some good time as a family. We were able to talk about Samuel, grieve him, and still rejoice in the time the 4 of us had together. It was a much needed time away from daily life tasks and just being able to focus on our family. Thanks, God, for providing us this time.

Caleb is terrified of the alligator statue.

Joel, on the other hand, has no fear.

Silly lemon-loving brothers

I love that these two are friends. It's one of our nightly family prayers -- that "Caleb and Joel would be great friends always."


  1. Your family was on my mind tonight. I was praying for you and wanted to check in on your website. Great pictures and beautiful prayer! May God provide you with a peaceful night's sleep. Rebecca

  2. Been thinking about y'all! I hope your trip was therapeutic. Love the last two pics in particular - your boys are too cute!

  3. Y'all have been on my heart. These pictures make me smile, and I am so glad that you were able to take some time and get away from the "daily life." I pray that God continues to give you comfort.

  4. LOVE the comparison alligator photos! I couldn't stop smiling when I saw them. I'm so glad you guys had a wonderful time! Jennifer and Jason

  5. PRECIOUS! Love the alligator pics.
    We pray the same thing for our girls. It's such a blessing to watch them grow in their friendship.
    Glad you had a sweet time as a family.

  6. Thanks for the great pictures. I miss my precious boys! (And I miss their precious mommy and daddy, too.)
    May God surround your first week at home with His presence and blessings of peace.
    Love, Mom
