A beachy kind of day

Hello everyone. Me and the kids are still at Grandmas and Grandpas house. Enjoying lots of adventures and can't wait for our family reunion to start on Sunday. After the reunion we will be on our way back home again. 

I thought that I would share some pictures from our beach day during the past 4th of July weekend. We drove down in the afternoon, drove around forever finding a place to park, finally settling on a payed parking lot, braved the crazy crowds, built sand castles, jumped the waves, relaxed, and soaked in some sun. I love the beach and was thrilled to move a lot closer. It's about a two hour drive, instead of a twelve hour drive !! So here are some images from our beach day !!

Noah was afraid of the waves at first. Not sure what to think about the water.

Katelyn and Patrick wave jumping. She loved it !!

lounging on the beach. Patrick made a comfy lounge chair out of sand.

It really was a relaxing, rejuvenating, wonderful afternoon. After we left the beach we stopped for dinner and then made the long drive home, not really wanting to leave. I wish we could make the trip to the beach every weekend. Oh well. That's it for now. Now I'm off to do some much needed relaxing.
