Back from vacation

Hey everybody! We are back from a week away and man am I ready to post some photos. I was dying to get home and blog is that wrong? ;) We headed up the coast to San Luis Obispo and then Big Sur. Here are a few random in no great order pictures and little stories. Ever since the girls were big enough to walk I started taking this picture below every time we go to the beach. Here is the one of Morgan and Dan. I don't know why but I have always loved the pictures I take of Dan and the girls standing at the edge of the water. I love seeing how tall they are getting next to their daddy and just the calmness that is always there. I will have to collect all the photos when they are grown and make them a book so they can see the changes.
Dan was trying to take a nice picture of Morgan & I but we kept messing him up. Girls just wanna have fun daddy-o! ;) I think he took this right before the hippies right down the beach from us stripped ALL of their clothes off and started running around. I will spare you the photos and nasty details of that experience. The funniest part? I yelled,"hey girls, look down THAT way and see if you see a better place to play!" They said,"ok, mom." and off they went away from their first crash course in sex ed and proper hygiene.
I like this picture of Ryanne climbing up for a hug on Dan. I just realized however that I think that is sand up her nose. Eeeewwwwwwww!
Most of the trails were still closed in Big Sur from all the fire damage. It was very sad to see all that was burned. We were still able to hike down the trail to the water fall which the girls LOVED!! Morgan took this picture for us. Your getting really good at this picture taking thing Morgan. Way to go!!
Seriously, does it get any better than this? I don't think so.

I am so jealous! I just love that last picture and to live near a place that is so beautiful. Glad you had a nice vacation.

Beautiful! I love Julia Pfieffer state park, that waterfall is SO amazing. We love to go camping up in San Simeon, it's just so pretty up there, and a nice break from the heat.

I love the picture of Dan and Morgan, I can't wait to do that with Ethan :)

I LOVE the Central Coast!!!
I asked God if we could plant a church there, but I guess He had other plans. At least it is fairly close to us.
And wow does that water look blue. If you didn't mention where you were, I wouldn't have guessed California.
Glad you guys had a great vacation.
And by the way, I LOVE how Morgan shares Jesus. You have a little evangelist in your home.

We went to Big Sur on our honeymoon, so fun, so breathtaking. However, naked hippies are almost to be expected. ;)

I love hearing your story about Morgan sharing Jesus. What a precious heart.
