Beach

When most people hear the word beach they think of something like this:

When I hear the word beach I think of something more along the lines of this:


My sisters decided that they would like to visit the beach today so we all bundled up and went to play in the sand. It was the first time in a while and Harry was very uncertain about the whole walking in sand thing. In fact most of the time he was positively grumpy and would not play in the sand unless coaxed. Evan had a blast and ended up getting wet when a rogue wave tripped him while he was trying to run away from it in horror. That ended the day because mommy, who thought she had brought everything except the kitchen sink, had not brought a change of clothing for the kids. Silly mommy!



Evan trying out the hole that they dug. He tried to fill it in while he was still in it.


Harry giving his auntie a kiss while she was buried in the hole.

Going to check out the waves.

A sad little boy. He was mad that I left his side to take pictures of Evan. He also wanted me to open the cheese for him.

We do City Beach, which is a pretty little beach at the lake. Soooooo relaxing. I could sit for hours and let my kids dig holes and trenches and whatever else while I read my little books.

And no jellyfish!

Never been a beach girl myself. Don't like salt water, don't like sand, don't like sitting in the sun for hours, don't like the lack of clean bathroom facilities, can't swim, hate ocean creatures touching me. Other than that, it's a great place ;)

Love the pictures of the boys! Too cute!

Auntie was such a good sport, to be buried up to her neck!

We love the beach, but ours look a bit more like the picture at the top.

Too adorable! I prefer the craggy, isolated beaches myself. But maybe that's just because I'm a Canuck. :-)

Love the pictures; I hope my little guy does better than yours this summer!

Great pictures. It did look a little cold.
I took Bubbie to the each for the first time this weekend. He wasn't to sure about the sand but he loved the water (it was really cold though).

That picture of Harry kissing his auntie is the cutest thing ever. And the abandoned baby is the saddest thing ever! You cruel and heartless mother, you...

(I sent the Thomas tracks yesterday but they went seamail so who knows when/if they will reach you!)

Awww, they look like they had fun. :) Even the grumpy head. LOL
