Beach Week 2017

Beach Week 2017 is in the books.  What an incredible week with family. 

This year:
* 29th Beach Week
* Welcomed three new family members:  Amelia, Della, and Charles
* Sarah came from Hawaii
* Had Jenn and Eric, of Heflin Photography, take professional pictures
* Michael Burgers and miniature golf on Friday
* Celebrated 3 birthdays Saturday morning:  Lena’s 2nd, Mary’s 5th, and David’s 7th
* Swam at friends’ bay house 

To officially begin Beach Week, we stopped by to see Mom on our way to Galveston.  Mom and Dad began the tradition of Beach Week in hopes of keeping our families close.  Their expectations and desires are being accomplished.

The Closing of a Blessed Week

For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.
Psalm 100:5

How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!

The LORD has done great things for us,
     and we are filled with joy.
