So, Aaron and I decided that we very well could be beach bums for the rest of our lives.

Man, alive. Is it me, or does it seem that the VERY best lighting you could ever want, is always found at the beach? (I should post all our photos from various beaches we've been to, and they will ALL prove my point!)

Anyway, we went to Port Aransas on DAY 1 of Aaron's Spring Break with the Jessop family, and we left before we had the chance to play with the Smith family. The reason for our quick exit was that Aaron would be heading to LA and me to Utah super early the next morning (try 4 a.m.).

But, we were SO glad we finally made the trip down to the coast. It was a lot of fun. Here are some pictures.

p.s. yes, I am still in Utah---vacating it up! But, I posted these pictures to Flickr before I left, so now, that I have some "down time" while I'm here (first time in days), then I thought I'd post some. Enjoy.




That Aaron. He loves to sing and dance. It makes no difference if he is on a mountain top or at the ocean front. What a card.



I like looking at profiles. I think it would be crazy if Aaron's profile was stuck like this next one ALL the time. hA!


even though my stomach drops every time Aaron does this with her, I have to admit, this is a pretty cute picture (and get a load of those little pink sandals. her little toes were so cute in those!)





The two knuckle-heads ready to brave the water. Now that's hard core... or not.




(reminds me of a scene from Gidget!)

Cute little Dylan. What a treat he is!


I love these next two of Tim and Melissa. They look so darn good. That is why I had to enlarge these images. Now, that's a good looking couple.




Gotta get those pictures of the un-sung photo takers. Good work, Melissa!




you can see the drama played out. Let's just say this, Easton loved the sand. He wanted Matilda to enjoy the sand. Matilda hated the sand. And, probably hated Easton at that moment in time. :) Gotta love cute babies.





there you go. beach day, spring break, 2009.
p.s. that little gold hoody was mine when I was a baby. oooh, tender!

Even though it was crummy weather, I bet it was all worth it so you could put Tillie in the adorable hat and sunglasses. Love it. Poor Tillie, I don't like sand either (in my face that is).

Tyler and Erin said...

She is such a dolly! And I'm totally jealous of the beach! LUCKY YOU!! Oh and thanks for the "poop" advice. It's helped a lot. She was doing so good until...uh today. :-( Hopefully it's just a hiccup.

love Tillie in the 80's gold. I love that your mom saved your clothes. I also love the re-bar tree thingy-ma-bobs in LA. I seriously need one of those in my yard. Maybe I need to hone my welding skills.

Kristen & Brooks said...

Tim and Melissa said...

I love all of the pictures!! I'll be saving some of these from your blog as you do a much better job with pictures than me!! Thanks for coming with us. We'll have to do it again - hopefully it will be warmer next time!!

Kajsa said...

Leah said...

Those pictures look great! I miss the beach. I'm glad you had a good time!

Tara said...

Every time I look at your blog Tillie gets cuter and that possible? I'm jealous you are in Utah...if you see Whitney will you give her a big hug for me?

Oh and I am totally digging the Hannah Montana pics....

Mark & Bek said...

Cute beach pictures. I cannot believe we haven't met Tillie yet. I wish you would have come with Aaron so we could have gotten to see you. Hopefully it won't be too long until we all end up in the same vicinity.

marc, michelle and Jackson said...

Oh cute can tillie be?! Melissa, is she your daughter or what?! Seriously these pictures of you guys at the beach, she looks just like you! I love all the pictures and I love that you just got to go to Alpine, so jealous. I hope you had the greatest trip ever. Oh, and I will be calling you this week...we need to talk. :)

erin said...

Such great beach pictures! And, Tillie's glasses are too cute.
Funny that she and Ella have another outfit that's the same. Yep, good old Costco! Love that place.
