Beach Pics

Beach pictures just make me happy. I love to be behind the camera shooting them, and I love to look at them over and over and over. The peace that comes from knowing the God who made all that beauty shines through each picture. And it doesn't hurt that the kids are having a 100% good time in every pic either!
