Beach 2016

Last week we packed our bags and headed south to spend a week together at the beach. My mom and my bestie Marian joined us as well. And perhaps the best thing about the beach this year was...

Yep! My Madison flew across the ocean, and my best friend Marian picked her up and brought her to the beach! We were soooo happy!
The beach never disappoints.
No matter what, it is always there, always ready, always calming.
Here are a few photos of the time we spent together at the beach this year...
We celebrated Marian's birthday with dinner at a Japanese Hibachi Restaurant...
And with a delicious Baskin Robbins cake afterward. : )

She just loves her gift...can't you tell?!
Thank you Ocean City, for the memories!
My girl is back across the ocean, safe and sound.
And our hearts are full of happy times.
Have a wonderful week, my friends!
