Annual Beach Trip

So I have a couple of posts to write. The first one is about the Annual Beach trip. Since the children were little, my mother has taken the grandkids here for a week on the beach. This year they went to Camano Island. I usually don’t go. This year, Benjamin went up for a couple of days, hence pictures on my camera! So I actually get to post. :D

There are a ton of pictures. Easily 200 were taken in one afternoon. These are some of my favs:

Here he is snuggling with her. He’s such an awesome cousin.

He’s also… um, very hot for being 13. Example:

It’s no wonder he has girls all over him.

    Hmmmm not sure the Karl "hot" comment is appropriate. Cute pictures otherwise
