Otto Bownes Reunited

Few things warm my heart like spending time with our dear Philadelphia friends! They were kind enough to make the long drive to us so that we could enjoy sand castles and ice cream cones and late night talks and baby snuggles. One of my favorite moments was when we all went out to breakfast together, six kids and two adults! As our brood of kids filed in one by one, the look of shock and delight on the faces of the senior citizens eating their toast was priceless.

Here are some pictures of our beach adventure:

This got me thinking about some of our other beach days with the Bownes over the years.  

Like this one in 2012 where we had half as many children amongst us. Ha!
