Sun & Sand


Ah, there is something about the beach. It is just so relaxing to listen to the waves crash upon the shore, have the sand between my toes and the feel the warm sun on my face. I grew up about 20 minutes from the beach, and my family loved to spend the long summer days there. Now, I'm glad we are still fairly close. 

It was great to just get away from our city for the day and relax with each other.



It was the perfect day for a day at the beach!

Mmmhmm, I love my hubby.

Oh yes, sun and sand!

Our friends Cassidy & Josh were camping at the beach, so we decided to meet up with them.

The ladies.


And the men.

Then Cassidy thought it'd be fun to do some jumping pics:

We are pros...ok maybe not. :)

Yes, the seaweed behind us smelled fantastic. Really. Oh well. At least it wasn't in the water!




Since some of your guys can't go the beach, I made you all feel better by getting really burned. Super burned. This morning we were both really dehydrated because of it. I haven't had a burn this bad in a really long time. The poor sunscreen was just sitting in my bag...next time we will listen to it's pleas! Silly us. 

Even still, it was a beautiful day with my husband and our friends...we are just red as tomatoes to prove it. 

I hope you all had wonderful weekends, minus the sunburns!

You are beautiful and I'm in LOVE with your bathing suit. I wonder why taking jumping pictures on the beach is always so fun. It never gets old! And yup, I'm definitely getting jealous looking at these photos!

Cory said...

AHh super jealous, but so glad that you had a wonderful day!

Looks like you had fun. Your bathing suit, and that red flower clip in your hair are both super cute. I can't believe you didn't put on sunscreen! Ouch. I got burnt last week taking dinner out of the oven (2 inch burn, blister included), hopefully you won't blister. I've heard vinegar takes out the sting? I remember our 2nd year of marriage-we went down to vacation on the west florida coast, and hubby forgot sunscreen. He was miserable. Makes me shudder remembering how bad it was...even on the top of his feet. Anyhow, at least you had a blast!


P.S.-Thanks for the views of the water. :)

Brooke said...

Emily said...

Love your jumping pictures, so clever.

I also got really burnt from the beach a few weeks ago. My tips, don't shave, ouchy. don't scrub with washcloth or loofa, ouchy too and lotion up! I always keep ignoring the sunscreen's pleas as well. =/

so your bathing suit is darn amazing. I like the print of your friends suit too! I just can't do that cut because I'm packing MUCH junk in the trunk...lol. But yours is so adorable on the bottom!!! :)

Sorry you got burnt. I got burnt on my mouth once and it blistered and I probably told every person I encountered and complained like a two year old...

K. enough about me.

Glad you enjoyed yourself gorgeous!! Have a blessed MONDAY :)
