Every year we always do a family picture on the beach. (Another one of Savannah's requests is that Lady, her bear, take her place in all family pictures.)
At first I didn't want to go; Savannah loved going to Popham. She would play in the water, run on the beach and write LOVE in the sand about every 5 feet. I knew this would be a hard "first" for us.
Kiara and Donovan had a great time. They would run from the waves, screaming all the way. Donovan would stand just far enough away and shake his bottom at the waves (teasing them, I suppose). Kiara actually got wet this year, usually the water is too cold. Because of the hurricane that weekend the water was warmer.
The waves were extremely high also due to the hurricane. They came up over where high tide usually stops. It was a little scary with the kids near the water but great for taking pictures. I think I took somewhere around 300, just of the water. Many more of the kids.
