The big kids at Avila Valley Barn

I am always amazed, and a bit dismayed, at just how fleeting time is! It's picking up speed with each passing year. So, before December is over I need to document (with a few posts) the great time our family had when we were all together at Thanksgiving :) 

We had a fun, whirlwind of a week! We visited Avila Barn (above), and then Avila Beach before ending up at the Splash Cafe for dinner...Boy that place was crowded!

We also made it to Refugio State Beach. It was a joy for me to see all of my munchkins running around playing together...

 Look at these silly cousins, playing in their very own beach fort:)
L to R:  Megan, 4; Jake, 3; Caleb, 2; Karaline, 6; Zeke, 4

Of course I can't forget the three new, little cuties~all born this year!
L to R: Max, July 4; Addy, April 15; Josh August 21

Sure wish I had taken a photo with all three of my kid's heads showing, but I guess I was too taken with the babies:) Oops!

All together at last! So much cuteness at one time...I was one happy grandma :)

Even this stunning sunset couldn't compete with the beauty of my grandchildren.
