We're at one of our favorite places on earth...
We're spending our days...
playing with sand toys
swimming in the waves
begging to go into the "sea" & then giggling NONSTOP the entire time
(& crying when I make her leave the water!)
lots and lots and lots of swimming
diving ALL BY HIMSELF! to the bottom of the pool & figuring out ways to bring up his toys!
(the mouth is a good idea.)
playing together building sand castles for knights and pirates
(Great-Grammy is the designated "amazing moat builder")
eating their traditional dill pickle spears served with a view
eating a picnic lunch on the beach with Great Grammy (who has been coming to this exact spot on the beach since 1962!)
eating or swimming - all from the comfort of Cookie's arms
riding the waves with Cookie
(& both boys laughing hysterically)
making silly "happy" faces
(she is so happy to be here)
taking late afternoon naps -
falling asleep on Lovie
and crashing together on the beach
(Sweet Sister didn't last as long for her nap as her big brother)
pushups with Cookie
this boy loves the ocean
learning to bodyboard...
doing it the first time with Mommy
(video coming soon)
and taking matters into her own hands...
desperate to be in the water- Ellie takes off on her own for the water
We're having the best time...
sun to lay in, waves to jump, sand to dig in, oceans to explore and watch stingrays in, jellyfish to avoid (the non stinging kind thankfully), waves to ride, hugging and kissing, lots and lots of book reading (I'm on my 3rd book of the week!!), shells to discover, movies to watch, cuddling, playing "go fish," eating lots of yummy seafood, crab hunting, time of our lives.
