We just got back from our family beach trip and boy did we have a GREAT time! It went by so fast!!! Doesn't it always!?!? My sister B always says that we have to stop picking the shortest week of the year!!! lol
We had beautiful weather and took full advantage of it. Most of our days were spent on the beach, swimming in the ocean, or playing in the sand. The boys LOVED jumping the waves and building castles in the sand. The babies did GREAT too! Sophie LOVED the beach. She especially loved splashing in the ocean. She did try to eat the sand a few times, but quickly realized that that was not such a good idea. Hudson spent most of his time under the canopy snoozing. We did take him for a quick dip in the pool, but he wasn't too sure. He was happiest just sitting on the beach with his bottle.
So here are the top 10 reasons we LOVE the beach (in no particular order...)
1---Hanging out in Garden City!
We have several traditions that we look forward to year after year. Going to the Yum Yum Shop one evening to get ice cream is just one of those traditions.
Look at that ice cream dripping down her little chin!
Sophie sure did enjoy every bite!!!!
After our ice cream, we head over to the arcade to play some fun games.
