All Fired Up....And the Flame Out Day 4

I decided to take the kids into Seaside to paint some pottery so that we could have a take away from our trip. I learned a lot of things from this little excursion that I will not do again. I let the kids pick out a big piece to do. That was a mistake. The place required you  to do 3 coats of paint and let each coat dry in between. Too much work! I overheard a lady say (as we were leaving of course) that she lets her kids do a little tile every year to remember their vacation by. A much better idea and a tradition we will be starting next year if we are lucky enough  to go back.

Mine. The heart is made up of melted paint chips

That is one ORANGE shark Carso!

I love Burke's face in the back ground. It just perfectly fit what I thought of my kids' behavior that day.

But you wouldn't know it from these pictures would you?

Marin thought that Carsie was hilarious. I'm glad someone did that day. :)

This little guy was so funny. He kept walking around and trying to give the kids a hug. He was really feeling the vacation spirit. Our kids were not so sure.

A cousin Kate and Marin hug. Just happened to catch this one.

And a cute little shot of Hollis to end the post.


God has said, "Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you." So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper. I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?" Hebrews 13:5-6
