Blizzards?...on the Beach?!?!?! :)

We had the pleasure of an outing with Megan, Anna, Danielle, and Lydia Blizzard last (Sunday) night. Praise the Lord for His gift of wonderful friends!!

Thanks so much for coming you all! Love you and the Lord bless!!!!

L-R: Megan, Emily, Anna, Momma, Olivia, Lydia, and Danielle :)
Everyone as above, minus Megan plus Anna. Sorry for covering up your face, Danielle! *oops* :)

A signature group shot...

Yes...more feet! But this time my photography is more aquatically inclined! *haha*

Quick!...Look!'s the rare but fascinating species of 'Hand' Crab!!!!!! TAKE A PICTURE!!!!!! :D
Here is a footprint in the sand. I call it...Footprint in the Sand. : P

"Sigh. I tried to tell her that she can't dig to China but, alas, did she listen? I think NOT!" Just kidding! Emily pointed out to me how pretty Danielle's skirt looked billowing like this, so I took a picture. I'm glad she showed me! :)

"BekahDanB" is what is written in the sand. That's short for Rebekah Danielle Blizzard. We all soon followed suit when we saw Danielle writing her name in the sand. Very creative! ;O

Momma romantically writes, "Julia hearts (loves) Mike". Sigh...
Emily is attempting to write her name but...oh no!...what do I see...
...but a wave!!!!!!!!!!!! "You've got to be kidding me!" Emily exclaimed right after the wave returned to the ocean! We were all seized with fits of laughter! *heehee* :D
Olivia and Lydia pause for a picture with their names together. :) :-)
Miss Anna Faith O:)

"The Annas"...we love Jesus! ;)

Miss Anna Grace *<:o) Miss Megan, obviously! ^_^

The Mysterious Maids of Mayhem...*dramatic music*
The Not-So-Mysterious Maids of Mayhem...hehe...ahem. :D

The next sequence of pictures are of our beach group trying to get a snapshot with all of us in mid-air. That was fun and it took a while.
Try number one...
Try number two...almost there...I think...?
Try number three...Houston, we have a problem...these girls just can't seem to 'lift off'...

Try number long last our many attempts come to fruition! Needless to say, we were very winded by the time we finally got this picture. LOL! The only bad part is that Danielle and Lydia are covered up. :) Sorry!

A group shot at arms length...stretch!!!!!
"Reach for the sky..."
and...again... :)
a group shot
another one, plus Megan and minus Anna

Run girls, RUN!!!

The creation of God is a wonderful thing to behold, it's especially colorful on the beach!

God of wonders beyond our galaxy, You are holy, holy!!
Hallelujah to the Lord of heaven and earth!

Here is a special message to Airman Tim Blizzard from his little sister, Lydia.

"Hi Tim!!
Tim I love you!" Hope you got the message Tim. :)

Hope you all had fun looking at this post. We sure had fun coming up with the material for it!! God richly bless you all!

A Day At The Beach

On Tuesday, the ladies of our family made a day of going to the beach. While there we did things such as collect smooth shells, photographed the landscape, and splashed in the cool ocean surf. What a marvelous place God has created that man might go and be renewed.

So begins our hour-long hunt for shells from the ocean's depths.
Momma drying out her cover-up in the sea breeze.The three Stone girls.
Momma and two of her four treasures.
Look how the sand, ocean, sky, and dunes all seem to fade together in the horizon.

Another example of divine handiwork. Anna bestowing a kiss upon the cheek of her beloved sister. :)
Anna pretending to toss Olivia into the drink. LOL!
" Finally, a nice picture!" says Olivia. :)
The beach was strewn with these orange colored beauties. You couldn't walk ten feet without finding one or more!
A pretty daisy on the side of the road.
I'm not sure what kind of tree this is, but it sure made a fabulous picture! :)
My beloved mother dear and I.
A peaceful lane. Emily stoops to pick up a shell, hoping to get it before the tide washes it away. I don't know what on earth Olivia is doing though. I think it's hilarious!!! :D
AHA! I got it! Mom was in the water...I could see it coming...I turned on my camera...waiting! CRASH, came the wave, SNAP, went my camera...and DOWN went Mommy dearest! *heehee*

A shell with water and bits of shell in it. It was already like that. :)
The photographer with mom and Emily in the background.
Olivia made a heart out of a handful of shells. I just had to take a picture, it was too neat to pass up! Emily and Mom enjoy a gentle breeze.
And I couldn't post without one of my trademark pictures of feet. I tried four times to get a picture of Mom's and my feet. Lo and behold, I finally got it!!!

Sea shells and seaweed...
Clouds over the dunes...
Sea Oats...

More shell peaceful!
Sea surf, breaking on the sand.
A leaf of some kind...
More Sea Oats. I think this is a neat picture, can you see the bug? :)

A storm is brewin'...thank heaven we got out of there in time! :)
What a wonderful day!
The Lord be praised! :)
*Please be sure to scroll down to see the three posts before this one. I had my wisdom teeth pulled on Wednesday so I posted a lot, that's why there are so many at one time! :)
