Newport Dunes

I had a little bit of cabin fever the last couple of days. I know, I know, Finley isn't even two weeks old yet. I just am not one to stay in doors for too long. With a small living room and five kids I was about to go crazy. There is only so many times you can play Candyland and build forts out of blankets and sheets.
I have been feeling so much better. Everyday, I seem to walk a little faster and move a little better. Thank God! The kids have been such a help to me and I know they needed to get out too.
Grandma and Grandpa had a spot at Newport Dunes so we all headed down to the beach for a few days of fun! The boys had a blast playing in the water (even though there were jellyfish and stingrays!) I think they thought that made it a bit more daring and fun. Faith figured she would be safer staying ashore collecting sea shells and building sandcastles with the girls. Finley enjoyed the nice ocean breeze and cuddled with mommy in the lounge chair. Life couldn't get any better! Here's a few pictures (ok a lot of pictures)from our much needed mini vacation.
