Off.





We are leaving for our annual Smylie beach vacation. Have I mentioned how much I love all of these people? Have I mentioned how lucky I am to be part of this group? Have I told you how much I love my parents in law? We are headed to the beach for an entire week! Last year, I was in my 40th week of pregnancy with Lillie and was on the edge of my seat to see her beautifulness! She arrived the day we got home. Rather forcefully, I might add.

I am so excited. SOOOOOOOO excited. We cook for one another and when we're not cooking or playing games, we're on the beach, sitting, walking, relaxing, eating piles of junk food, laughing over the babies and taking photos. Sand gets tracked in the house constantly and there's always at least one naked kid running around. And the evenings are so nice! After dinner, we put on loose cotton and migrate slowly out onto the shore. We sing songs and play. And none of us ever want to leave.

Wow....what a great time!!! I am sure you will post amazing pictures as always! Happy belated 30th by the way...the snapshot of you is so cute!

Oh you make us all so jealous that we can't be Smylies.

And with absolutly no annoying or stalkerish undertone, I'm wondering if you got my emails... (there's no way for that not to sound stalkerish to me). I'm desperate for your opinion. And SO anxious to see your new "project".

Oh, I'm wishing Devin was a Smylie too so I could have married into this family (even though I have really great in-laws too, just wanted to include that:)

You people are all so BEAUTIFUL. That family shot is just gorgeous.

Was it really a year ago that I kept click, click, clicking on your blog in hopes of seeing new precious Lillie??
