We recently bought a nice camper (hmmm.... those are words I never thought I would type) and stayed in it at a beautiful national park at the beach. My parents & grandmother were also down in the same area for most of our trip and we met up with them a few days. For the past 5 years, going to the beach with kids has been more stressful than relaxing. But this year, ahh this year, the tide began to shift. Both boys enjoyed the sand & ocean. Unlike years past we spent more time at the beach than the pool and had a blast! Both D & N have been taking swim lessons this summer and have become quite the swimmers (especially Davis and he LOVES it)! My parents got D a boogie board at the beach and he took to it quite well.
He got knocked a few good times, but persevered. I was so proud of his carefree spirit and determination.
My Dad and Davis in their sand chairs enjoying a well deserved smoothie. Is that not the look of satisfaction on D's face or what? :) They are two peas in a pod!
My sister text me to ask if the sand bothered Noah. This is what he was doing at that moment....
I personally love pictures of kids playing in the sand! I think it reminds me of a simpler life- no electronics- just good old fashion play in the midst of God's creation.
I love these silly faces too.
We are already looking forward to next year's beach trip!
