Just about the time the younger two were getting up from their nap I suggested to hubby we hit a favorite sandwich spot and then the BEACH! Lovergirl has been BEGGING to go especially since her bathing suit came in the mail. So off we went!
The kids weren't as thrilled with their sandwhiches, as we were. Although I'm sure it had something to do with the fact that they dropped them in the sand. (Mental note ~ need to re-teach children how to sit on the blanket at the beach so the sand isn't flying)
They wanted to do this:
That is MY daughter...IN the MAINE water. In JUNE!!!!
I took a little girl down to see what big sister was doing....and there was NO fear of the cold water. (Yes that's me...freezing my feet in the water)
I have a pretty firm grip on her as the child has NO fear of the water. She wanted in!
Please, please let me go play!
And then there was this little man...
And what remains of the sand castle daddy built for them.
Looking forward to many more beach days this summer! Hopefully by August I'll have them retrained in proper sitting at the beach so sand isn't flying. Between now and then I apologize in advance if you happen to be near us :)
