beaches, bays, & babies (well, my nieces will always be my babies)

This weekend my mom, sister, brother-in-law, and two nieces came down to visit Cory and me on the coast. Gosh, after a whirlwind week of work, it was perfect timing for some sunshine and pure, uninterrupted veggin'.  

Surprisingly the crowds for Memorial Day were not as bad as I imagined they would be, and we spent the whole three days swimming and building sand castles without a care in the world. (And maybe an outlet store shopping trip thrown in there too for good measure..)

And y'all, I might have had a little freak out over my nieces. THEY ARE GETTING TOO BIG. I mean, geez, I totally now understand what my Gran meant when she said she wished she could "just stick a brick on your head to keep you from growing." How do y'all moms handle it?!? Thankfully when I mentioned this little tidbit of info to Ava, she told me "Whit, I'll always be your baby. Forever! Or at least for 54,170 days." Cue the happy tears. :) 

How was y'all's Memorial Day weekend?
