Lifes about a Beach!!!

Now that we are all feeling a little better, other than Mathew's weird "breakout" rash on the left side of his face after football practice last night. And Annabelle's half day of school because of a slight fever, we are all up to par!!

To help with my healing I think of the BEACH. Living in Kansas for MOST of my life we never got to the BEACH. I think I remember a trip once, on our way back from living in Italy, to a beach somewhere near Pennsylvania or Virgina. Mom you'll have to help my memory on that one.

Last year 2008 we moved to Ft. Bragg, NC! Fun, yes I know! I was EXCITED. I was of course going to miss family and friends but I was ready for the HEAT, less snow and the BEACH!!! But we had to wait a few weeks to get to the beach nonetheless I wouldn't have done it any different. We went to Myrtle Beach, Sc. I thought, "Great this is the beach capitol of the East Coast" (which I know a lot will disagree, but like I said this is the first time I will remember the BEACH!) The best part was that some of my family was able to visit and join us. Papa and Mom, Zach, Jessie and even Austin. We missed you Debbie, Tina and thier families.
(Pop's in the back to the left, you see him, come on I know you see him!)

Look at that water. Jessie hates water (we"fought" with that dollar store inter tube and got her in without a pop!)
And look at the sand ah the sand! Don't look at the guy he's my brother and that would be just WRONG.

Another PLUS was that we camped, that's right folks no hotels for the Light-Borman families. Instead of hundreds on hotels (for 2 nights, 3 hotel rooms would have been $600.) we spent $102 dollars (2 campsights $28 a day each) at Myrtle Beach State Park. Woo Hoo!!!!!

Well I think the Lights might have cheated a bit with the RV!! Just joking... Jacob cheated too since he slept in the RV as well!!
Here is a photo of that RV!!! It was Great to have!!!!!!!!
And then we found Carolina Beach, NC. It is closer to home, less crowed, and just as clean! That is were we venture to on weekends when we want to get out of the city and see the BEACH!
Another day another time I'll share pictures from there.

Rachel and Lance, Annabelle, Mathew, Jacob and Landon


  1. you should have put the photo of Jake hugging the tree, or annabelle looking very mad!! hahaha Or the SUPER cool photos of us at the ocean in the dark!!!!

  2. Oh my the girl in the intertube! First, she is gorgeous but I love that you guys put her in a kids intertube.. too funny!

  3. was it ocean city that you went to by pennsylvania and virginia??

    glad y'all had a great time!

  4. jessie- Thought about those, but I am going to do a camping post at some point and use the tree picture there. And the night ocean ones, lets just say I wasn't "up to par" in any of those!

    Dandy- We had only brought the intertube for my three children, and I had forgotten about Jessie's fears. Come to think of it Annabelle( my oldest)only wore the intertube once!

    Jeni- Im not sure, I still need to ask my mom about that. Thanks for the names though, it might triger her memory!

  5. ...sorry muffin we need to get back to sunday chats, I havent been on here at all...just got to my Mother in Laws, and things are crazy, It is sooooo busy all day long, I love your posts I have kept up but havent left comments.
