Anyone else look forward to one, particular trip EVERY year?!?! That’s exactly how I feel about our family’s summer BEACH TRIP! My grandparents are so sweet to bless my parents, my family and my sister’s family with a wonderful week by the ocean. Each year is filled with wonderful memories, but I think THIS year...
