In these pics, check out Sam's adorable fisherman's hat from Miss Sue! How cute is he?!!?! And both kids enjoyed the perfectly timed beach toys they just got yesterday from Mike, Terri and Lexus! Sam was all into castle building, seashell collecting, and "surfing". In these pics, he was waiting for the perfect wave to move him on his board. When it did, it took him by surprise! Later, when my camera battery was acting up, he and Keith had a blast body surfing with the waves. I don't know how they did it because the water was NOT warm! They also attempted to walk out to the big rocks at low tide. They made it more than halfway before it was just too deep. Maybe next time. Lucy was all about the sand! She loved it. Yes, she took that first taste, but that was all it took to realize sand is more fun to play with than eat. She spent a very long time with a piece of seaweed, and had the time of her life splashing in one of the pools left by low tide. That was also when the battery was threatening to quit, but she was hysterical splashing and covered herself with a layer of sand that may take days to wash away!
As expected, Lucy crashed before we even got out of the parking lot. Sam tried, but he was just too tired to fall asleep... anyone relate?! I just love days like this with my whole little family... they have been a long time coming and we are truly appreciating them. Today was just a dream come true. Enjoy the pics.
PS- We are meeting new friends tomorrow! I hope to have some pics to share. I am really looking forward to it.
