I may need a diet, a week of detox, and a 24-hour nap... but our BLOMPS family beach trip was absolute perfection. A beachfront house with 21 people - 14 adults, 7 (almost 8!) kiddos... seven days, beautiful weather, lots of adult beverages, tons of delicious food, days spent on the beach, my baby boy napping on my chest, putt-putt with our big girl, jumping and riding the waves, corn hole, late night beach fishing, runs with an ocean view, sandy diapers, sandcastles, ocean tea parties, seashell hunts, tons of laughter, and the perfect kind of chaos. So many moments I will always, always remember. And without further ado, too many pictures to document our week:
Showing E the ocean for the first time.
The first of many handfuls of sand in the mouth.
Our daily scene.
Love this stud.
Whit and SkySky!

And for our last night, we surprised the biggest kids with a glow-stick and sparkler beach party!
So, so blessed. <3 Until next time!!
