Who has ever said they don’t like the beach? Like no one!

Who doesn’t like the feeling of sand between their toes?

The only stressful part of a trip to the beach is beach picture night. Right? If you’ve done it, then you know it!!! I hate doing it, but I would hate it more if I didn’t do it.


And I would really hate myself if I missed getting these adorable snap shots of my grandsons!



Then I snapped this beautiful photo of one of them running toward the sunset, and decided to make this beautiful Pinterest pin. I hope you enjoy it!

  1. Hello, Gina! I found you via Thought-Provoking Thursdays and I see you are taking the 31 Day Writing Challenge, too. I’m excited to find you and plan to follow. I’m involved in leadership for Women’s Ministry in our church in northern Indiana. So glad we met!

  2. What a beautiful picture and pin. I love the image and sentiment. Our beach trips always allow me some time to be quiet and still (a hard task with 8 kids) as I contemplate His majesty and power.
