Our Blessed Chaos

My hubby + a 1st grader + twins in kindergarten + 4 critters..... Yeah it is chaos, but we are blessed!

Today's Verse

For my birthday this year I wanted to do something different. We have established a tradition with the kids that on their birthdays we have a "Birthday Adventure", and I thought for my birthday it would be fun to run away from home. Or at least go away for a couple days with no kids! So I did, and I took my good friend Monjetta with me to a hotel with an ocean view. Good thing we got the oceanview room because it was a cold, windy weekend and almost too cold to be out on the beach for very long. Anyway, we had a delightful weekend and here are some of the photos I took...

I never was a morning person, but at the beach getting up to see the sunrise is a must!

Stormy weather up the coast makes for a cold windy day, but the surf was fun to watch!

Even the seagulls had trouble flying into the wind.

All ready to go out.  We felt like snowmen trying to lounge on the beach!!

Being at the beach in February made me desperately want to rent one of these beach houses
for a week in the summer.  Just imagine literally living right on the beach... 
I will let you know what it is like, we will be spending a week in one of these beach houses in August!
