at the end of the day... it's about family.

While it was totally weird to be absent from the blogosphere yesterday - I had an excellent day with my family. (I'll be sure to catch up on all of your blogs today!)
Wednesday turned out to be a perfect beach day. I'm talking glass like water, perfect cloud to sun ratio, and a beach all to ourselves.
{five pelicans all in row}
{my sweet Lauren running in the waves}
{Brandon was a bit scared of the ocean so we made him a little pool to play in}

{I like the lighting in this picture... }
{My dad with Amy & Lauren}

I have to admit I felt a bit guilty about our beautiful day on the beach because of what's happening in the Gulf. That oil spill is such a horrible thing and doesn't appear to be easing up anytime soon. It's horrifying to think of all the wildlife that is suffering because of this mistake.

We also had a nice surprise in the afternoon.  A bird had built it's nest in my parent's garage and the birdies hatched!

Pretty amazing if you ask me...

Did everyone have a good Cinco de Mayo? Eat Mexican and down some margaritas?
Happy Thursday!
