Kyla was the ULTIMATE beach baby this week ... sand everywhere and NO complaints! She would beeline for the ocean without any warning and TOTALLY without fear. She even wanted to play frisbee with the boys!

I'd like to say most of our moments with Kyla are like this sweet one with Christie ... waves lapping at their toes ... birds hurrying by ... but...
Actually, most of them were more like this. Hee hee!
The Sea... Hurricanes, Schmurricanes.
Aunt Crazy and Lauren with sand in her eyes ... Poor Pipsqueak.
The gang on the beach.
Hanging in the house ... playing pool with the munchkins. I swear I didn't make her put the diamond on her head!

So, I'll save you some time ... there is no perfect family picture in this blog. But enjoy a few of these attempts, anyway! They're still quite cute.
Now, the Perfect Aunt Picture! Uh huh. I swear! They REALLY do like me most of the time! (Just not in these shots.)
On Saturday morning I said goodbye to the Outer Banks and headed to Wilmington, NC for the weekend with my Mom, of whom I took NO PICTURES. What kind of a daughter am I??
