We couldn't have had more perfect weather for this early in March. Not a cloud in the sky! A heated pool helps too....but the kids really preferred the beach.
And they are at the perfect ages to just dig away - completely self entertained! I've been waiting for this day!! Except Rhodes has a little ways to go - but lots of older sibling to help him out one day!
He stayed up in the condo most of the time being rocked by his Sugar. :-) He was definitely the most spoiled. ;-)
He also decided to start rolling over (back to stomach) and sitting up while we were down there! FINALLY (thought I'd never see the day), but I guess he just never had enough floor time at home to perfect it - not safe around here on the floor. :-)
They caught a lot of sand fleas and shells! The cold water didn't seem to phase them. Crazy kids.
Love bottoms! :-)
Rhodes enjoyed the beach for a little bit...in his bumbo.
He had to sit this round out of the sand. Maybe next year. But he enjoyed watching!
We dug a lot. Shovels. $2.50 at Wallyworld. Best $$ spent at the beach!
We pretty much had the beach to ourselves!
Except for the occasional spring break crew/couple that would walk by. And we practically had to "ear muff" our kids. I kept thinking, "please don't let the kids ask me what
BUT the spring breakers kept Robert and I entertained. Under our dark sunglasses.....oh, if they only knew how ridiculous some of them looked and acted. Oh, and we managed to NOT be on the beach when two guys in THONG SPEEDOS (I kid you not...they sell them at Alvin's Island) walked by. Pretty sure I would have said something (from my "flesh man", of course) and run my kids off the beach. Even on a private beach we're not safe.
We had lots of adventures that I'll share about this week! This was one of the best trips with the 4 kids yet - wait, like the only trip we've taken with 4 kids. Still, very fun. Absolutely exhausting, but well worth it!
I hope we didn't wear my grand parents out too much. I'm sure they're not used to as much noise as we make all day, every day.
Maybe we should call them up and make some racket over the phone for them! ;-)
