summer is not summer till you the beach and so hit the beach we did!
last year we only had one family beach day...yes, I said one! I was determined to not let that happen again next this year. Despite the holiday weekend and the feared crowded beaches we set out to the beach, later than planned with a few hiccups on the way--such as, needing gas, forgetting the baby's formula and a few tears here and there. But alas, after a 30 minute drive and 20 minutes spent looking for a parking, we finally made it. the weather was perfect, the water was warm, and the sand was scalding hot, but we didn't care, we were at the beach--all five of us were finally at the beach.
I was a little leery bringing the baby to the beach, but he fell in love with it. looks like I might have a little surfer dude after all! we spent the afternoon laughing, playing in the sand, splashing in the water and snacking on some grub. all in all it was a great family day--memories were made, loads of fun were had and we left with happiness in our hearts.
