One of our favorite summer activities….going to the beach!
We went there to play and relax. I never get tired of walking up to that boardwalk, and looking at that big beautiful ocean. It always takes my cares away.
It’s so beautiful and peaceful.

The girls have been asking to go to the beach since the weather warmed up, and while the water isn’t exactly warm enough, we still played in it for a bit.
We told Nakiah we would take her after her cast came off, but we found a remedy for that. She can’t wait to go back after the cast comes off.

Hope you enjoy the pics as much as we enjoyed being there.

Playing in the sand, building sand castles, digging holes, walking the beach, tracing our footprints, finding shells, chasing crabs. We even saw dolphins at one of the beaches last summer.
We can watch the boats go by, people watch, play and relax.
I imagine we’ll spend a lot of time at the different beaches this summer.

  3. >I grew up within walking distance of the beach. Even though I don't crave being there, I do miss being able to go whenever I feel like it. I look forward to introducing my son to building sandcastles.

  4. >We took Kieran to several beaches when we visited Orlando last fall. He had a *blast.* It definitely helped that Tom turned into a very large kid – they did many of the same things your kids enjoyed. I wish we lived closer to a beach, it is one of my favorite places to visit!
