great beach+great lighting = fun photos

We had a great walk on the beach and the lighting was perfect for me to capture it all on film.  We're having a great time!  The weather's a tad cool {it's all relative, right?}, but the girls are loving the pool anyway ... and there's always the hot tub to warm us up.  The girls even made a couple of friends which is pretty cute to watch.

Taylor finished up the second book in the Twilight series, and downloaded the third onto Curt's kindle.  I don't think she's read so much in her entire life!

A while back, I decided to put God's fourth commandment as a priority in my life ... "remember the Sabbath and keep it holy."  I failed pretty miserably.  I wasn't going to email, or check my computer, etc., etc.  I did decide to close the store on Sunday's, so I feel good about that.

Anyway, I brought the {cartoon version} movie Ten Commandments down to watch with the girls ... they loved it!  Piper loved that it was a 'true' story.  When God was giving Moses the commandments, and came to the verse above, it struck me again.

So yesterday, I gave up the computer {and asked Taylor to too} and spent the day fully immersed in my family.  I put work out of my mind as we played games, ran, laughed, swam ... it was awesome.

And I can't wait to do it more ...

For a moment, I thought Taylor was you in those pictures.
