Oh Hey What Up?

The beach. The beach is what up. Just FYI.

Point the first: My children -- my lousy, wretched, terrible children -- have insisted on waking up at 6:30 am every morning of this mini-vacation, and for that I am ready to...uh...I don't even know what I'm ready to do to them, I'M TOO TIRED FOR RETRIBUTION.

Point the second: Shovels. Shovels as big as toddlers.

Madness!

Point the third: We're smuggling about half the beach home in our children's thigh rolls and underwear pockets. Don't tell anyone.

Point the fourth: We're leaving today, so I better get back out there with my big-ass shovel.

We've been beaching it for the past couple weeks...how do they manage to get sand into EVERY SINGLE CREVICE? Ugh. My toddler is enjoying eating it too, for some odd reason. Extra fiber, right?

Ezra and I have the same jaunty hat.

Enjoy! Ezra seems to be over his sand aversion, and Noah looks decidedly unafraid in the water. Almost worth getting up at 6:30 for!

Mine gets up at 6:30 ONLY on the weekends! Week days, when we need him to be up and ready for schoo - no.
Argh!

That's awesome, Noah in the sand and water. One of my friends will not go to the beach because sand feels icky to him-he's 33. Ezra looks like a snuggly sand muffin. Your kids are so cute! I just found out I'm pregnant, their cuteness inspired us:)

Where can I get a shovel like that?

Julie

Oh, enjoy! Looks like a blast!

I've been lurking in hopes of more Ceiba. Any chance you might post a "oh hai you're home" entry? :) I love that pooch.

Marie

You found a beach with no oil? We are going to SC instead of the Gulf. I will miss the white play sand.

Lorena

Does Noah prefer the beach in a full swim outfit (shirt and shorts) or is that just for more sun protection? I'm curious because my sensory-sensitive cousin haaaaaaates wearing any kind of swim shirt at the beach. He thinks you're supposed to wear swim trunks and that's it.

YAY!!! Look at them in the sand and surf!

Susan

Supposedly baby powder will help brush off all the sand... Love the giant shovel - Snackbox only wants full size implements - no "child-size" broom for him, he's gonna use the Swiffer (but Mama's not complaining!). I wasn't quite so enthusiastic when my husband let him "play" with the pitchfork in the garden...

It's not just the little ones who get up early on vacation. i was looking forward to a break from getting up early for my full-time job. But my teens, who will sleep till 11 at home if not awakened by me, have been getting up at 7 on vacation. Go figure!

I was at the beach this past weekend and seeing your pics reaffirms that fact that I miss it like WHOA.

Great pictures, Amy! I hear you on the thigh rolls and sand. (On my TODDLER. Not on ME.) (As far as you know.)
