Childer's Family Vacation

Geran & Alivia on the beach
Alivia love her "G". With Daniel being gone for the past 18 months, Alivia is quiet sure that Geran is her dad. That has proven to be hard on Geran, as he is quiet fond of her as well. It has been hard for him to relinquish the "dad" roll back over.
Amber, Daniel, Alivia, Tyler, Chrissy, & Geran
My mom and dad came down later than we did. My mom had been on a mission trip to Brazil and didn't get home until after we had already left, so my dad waited on her.

Alivia, Me, & Geran
Alivia would live with us if her mom would let her. She spends the night with me at least 3 or 4 nights a week most of the time. Even then, you would think my sister was killing her when she comes to pick her up. My summer days seem very long without her being there everyday while my sister works. She is definitely an Aunt Chrissy's little girl!! Aunt Chrissy & her little princess (she loves pigtails)

Tyler Boogie Boarding

Alivia Dancing on the Beach

Watching Tyler and Alivia on the beach amaze me. Kids are amazing. Tyler was so brave, he would fall down and get right back up until he taught himself how to Boogie Board. Alivia loves to dance. She would get on the beach in her little bathing suit and dance everyday. Every time she would make her little trip down to the water. She would stop near everyone that had a radio or some sort of music playing and dance her little heart out. I watched her and a part of me envied her. The ability to dance like no one was watching her. To do what made her happy regardless of what everyone else thought. Oh to be a kid again.

We had a great time at the beach. For the first time since we have been married Geran and I both were able to spent the whole week with everyone. It was nice. Can't wait until next year.

Looks like you had a wonderful time! Chrissy and I can't get over how much Alivia has grown! She looks so much like Tyler! Her hair is so beautiful. Keep posting the photos!
