This summer we finally got together at the beach with our Birmingham friends.  We had 8 adults and 12 kids 10 and under in one house!  It was a blast!
 Everyone was happy to be together and the kids jumped right back in to playing with each other.

Our house was walking distance to Blue Mountain Creamery.  It was a the perfect way to cool off at the end of the day.
 Our crew took up the whole side of the place
 Loved seeing these kiddos reunite.
 Audrey and Brooklyn formed a bond quickly 
 The backyard had a pool that provided us with daily entertainment

 This was the afternoon view 
 Our second day there it stormed in the morning.  By the afternoon it cleared up and the kids wanted to check out the big waves.
 All 12 kiddos watching the waves
It wasn't long before they were getting wet in the water.

 We started out June with the girl's dance recital.
 Audrey has a great group of girls in her class.  They all get along so well.
 It's been fun watching her dances evolve over the years.
She was front and center this year.
This was Evelyn's first recital.  Thank goodness for rehearsal.  She was very shy and didn't do as well.
Too bad I couldn't take pictures the day of the recital.  She did so much better!  I was so proud of her.
She loves her monkey costume
 Showing me her tail
 Again, the recital was so much better than rehearsal
 Evelyn posed herself in this picture 
The beads were a big hit with keeping the girls entertained backstage 
Audrey's class gets easier every year.
