Who Doesn't Heart The Beach?

We are officially home from camp. And I may or may not have lots of clothes and boxes strewn about my home. With no intentions of unpacking them anytime in the near future. I'm just too worn out. Plus, Jayci likes crawling on them. And I'm all about accommodating the little one. Except right now, when she is intent on banging on my computer keyboard.

This is all besides the point. The point is that I am going to the beach, sans baby, in less than a week! Adam and I, along with some of our best friends, are headed to the Dominican Republic. Lets all just agree that we need a little vacation after 7 weeks of camp. Amen.

Now that I think about it, however, my upcoming beach trip is NOT the point of this post. Clearly, I have trouble maintaining a singular focus. This week's contest at I Heart Faces IS the point, and the theme is "beach." I took some pictures of Jayci when we went to the beach before camp, but I wasn't all that happy at how they turned out. This shot, however, was my favorite of the bunch. I realize it's not extraordinarily "beachy" so it probably won't win, but I like to play along anyways. My competitive nature just cringed a little bit when I wrote that but whatever.

  11. Oh my gosh. She is so adorable. I hope you win first place one day : ) because I know that you, probably more than almost anyone else, would just die of happiness. Although, of course, I do NOT want you to die so I am taking back my wish : ) I am so excited for you to have a break with your friends. That is going to be fantastic! Every time I see your sweet baby girl my face breaks into a happy smile!

  15. Not beachy? What? So if you whip out that picture and show it to someone and say "So, where do you think Jayci was when I took this?", they're gonna say "Denver!"? No, I call that a beach picture, sister, and a fine one at that! So glad you're back.. can't believe you're headed out to ANOTHER COUNTRY after all of that. I wish I had 1/10 of your energy; I could accomplish so much! Welcome home...
