Lazy days on the beach ...

We are at the beach for the week ... we arrived around dinner Saturday night. The ride was great ... the kids truly were so well behaved. Just a few fits ... but otherwise I kept it together.
I mean ... seriously ... who likes a long car ride??

The kids ... Babycakes, Hair Girl's oldest, Little Lawyer and Little Mister. They were so awesome yesterday. We spent all day at the beach. Litterally ... all day. We arrived at 11:30 and headed up at 5:30. The weather was amazing ... high in the 80s ... and the breeze made the day perfect!

Little Mister mastered the boogie board this year and spent the entire day on his belly in the ocean. He came up to the beach twice. Once to trade it out for a skim board and once to ask for lunch. He has fallen in love with that boogie board ... I pray the waves last all week.

Babycakes chose this boogie board at the tacky beach shop yesterday. She loves it!!! I am not sure if it is the board she loves or the fact that she needs the older boys to help her ride it. Either way she has ventured out quite far into the water this year. Great for her ... no reading for me!

Seriously ... seriously .. this is where you set up camp? Right in between my rental chairs and the view of my kids??? Please note I will instruct my children to flick sand on you when they walk by and pass you as much as possible until you realize that when you are twenty something you need to set up camp far, far away from families. It is truly best for us all!!!
Babycakes was the hit of the beach yesterday. The older boys were trying to catch a hermit crap for her and could never catch one. They did find a conch which she kept in a bucket all day. It is a very interesting creature with a beautiful shell. All the kids on the beach wanted to see her treasure and she happily showed it to all of them. She was in heaven all day. She insisted on bringing it back to the condo with lots of seaweed for it to eat. We shall see if it made it through the night. I would love to let it go free today ... but we shall see.

  2. Sounds like a great day!

    One of my pet peeves is when people plop themselves down on top of me when the whole beach is available. Why? You would think the 20 somethings wouldn't want to be close to families - go figure.

    Have a great vacation!
