Did You Know We're Still Here?

Yes...we are still here and it's my mission this summer to blog some more to show what the Arkansas Popes are up to.

We just got home from an amazing week at the beach on Anna Maria Island, Florida.  I always dreamed of being the "cute Mom" on the beach with her kids playing in the sand and this trip helped that dream come true.  Now...when I say "cute Mom" what I really mean is non-frumpy, youthful, and fun Mom.  To make it even better, I got to nurse Alana and she took naps on me.  Could it get any better?

My kids were complete beach bums LOVING every second they got to spend in the sand.  Quinn would wake up in the morning and suggest that "we go to the beach first, then you can go for your run."  He could not wait to get out there.  For the little boy who loathes swimming lessons, he sure did thrive in the ocean not minding a bit if a wave knocked him down, if he drank salt water, or if water was in his eyes.  Alana just learned to walk the week before so she loved chasing the birds and exploring the beach on her own too.

To make the trip even better, Kristie (Brad's mom), Brad's sister Michelle and her husband Fred and their two kids got to come and enjoy the trip for a few days.  It was awesome to get to share the memories with them, to have a few extra hands around, and to let the cousins play together and the big kids share a drink and many laughs together.

I hope you'll enjoy the pictures as much as we enjoyed our trip!
