July was the month of visitors. I was so excited when I heard my sister and niece were coming up our way. She and Greg were going to keep it a secret from me and just have her show up but for many of the same reasons I usually get my birthday gifts early, Greg told me 🙂 Many of the days they were here were filled with rain. They loved it (coming out of the insane heat of Texas) but it did put a little bit of a damper on outings. One of our nice days found us at Birch Bay. I always seem to forget how much we all enjoy a day at the beach.

Zeke absolutely loved looking for crabs. He was always so gentle picking them up. Into his shovel they would go usually with a rock or shell to hide under. This one went all the way to the picnic table to show dad.
