Next stop- The Cabin

After the beach we headed to one of my favorite places on earth- My Grandpa's Cabin. 
We cooked smores... if you'd call it that, more like had a ton of fun burning marshmellows! haha!

Wake up call- 5:30am
Wouldn't have it any other way if it means fishing with Grandpa.
Isn't the lake beautiful at sunrise? 
A little piece of downhome, backwoods, Texas swamp heaven.

My cute little family! Minus sleeping Luke.
I can't believe how much Dixie has grown. I need to do a Dixie/kiddo photo shoot ASAP!

And a few Instagram pictures... 
One of their favorite things to do! Catch perch and crawdads down in the bar-ditch.

I'm so glad that I caught this picture! Maggie just went over to Grandpa Barrow, got real close, and held his hand. 
I love love love love love this picture.
Sometimes pictures aren't about the clarity, aperature, or landscape... 
sometimes they are simply about the moment.
Thanks for the all the wonderful moments Grandma and Grandpa! 
We can't wait to come again!

We made it!!! The ocean!
Rachel was by far the happiest to be at the beach. She loved every minute, got completely wet, and I had to remind her several times not to go too deep!

Maggie didn't care much for getting wet, but loved exploring the beach. She found rocks, shells, and sticks! hehe

I just love this picture of Dixie. Couldn't tell you why, just do.

Dixie wasn't sure what to think of the water. She followed the waves up and down the beach.
