I popped some of this quickly in the oven while I got the car ready and in 15min we were ready to head out.
Guess who we found there??? Someone (Nana) was already relaxing to the sound of lapping water.
Ava enjoyed exploring with Daddy and finding hermit crabs and seashells.
They did find one "real" crab, but when Shaun tried to catch it... it caught him first. Poor thing.
them be some hard working hands.
...sorry people, the only kind of tans we have time for are the hardworking "farmer" tan type.
you got a little pizza there...
Ok, smile for Mommy!
"I love you Daddy..."
" I love YOU, Ava..."
Clara spent much of her time with Nana watching Mommy and Daddy and Ava in the water. She was sporting her sister's old swimsuit. Ava was 10mo old in it last year and obviously a bit bigger and "curlier" but they're both so cute in it!
I had picked these up at CVS for 75% off the other day (so instead of spending $20 a piece, I spent $5. I got two because I know next year I'll have two in vests)
Though we only stayed for about an hour, Ava was a happy camper and ready for bed when we got home.
I do consider us to be the bravest people in the world because just a couple of weeks back the beaches were closed due to shark sitings less than a mile from shore.
I'm so scared of Sharks (Shaun's not scared of anything) that just looking for a picture for the blog made me nauseous and I had avoided the beach for most of the late summer. I had images of my entire family being wiped out in one hungry bite... still, we braved the waters (to my waist... Shaun went further out) for the sake of family memories.
I think it was worth it.
