Costume Party

Let's play dress up

Spider Girl

Jumping on mom's bed

My little mermaid
How many costumes can I layer myself in? 
(this reminds my mom of China- AP's out there will know why!)
The dynamic duo
Here comes yellow!

This dress twirls
Pretty in pink
Excuse me, Coconut
A real live audience
Just who's going to clean up this mess?

Spectacular Sunset

Every night
The horizon lights up
Swirls of pink and orange
Fading to blue and purple
Few bother to look anymore
At a lovely blessing
That only comes once a day
Each sunset is different
No two exactly alike
Difference flows throughout
While it is the only similarity
Over the ocean
Or through the sky scrapers
Out on the prairie
Or in an apartment
You can still see a piece
A piece of something
Something never to return
A sunset
For the colors are shimmering
For a moment they stay
Only to disappear into change
Change just as beautiful as the last
This is why
No matter where you go
One thing remains the same, 
A difference in sunsets
In your very own sunset

Heaven In South Haven

We visited beautiful South Haven, Michigan

These steps led down to the private beach

Seriously...you expect me to go all the way down there mom?
Almost there, taking a short break
Made it!
Lake Michigan

Examining a beach bug

A great kick off to summer
