Beach Bummin'

Sweetpea would make a great full time beach bum. She loved the sun, the sand, the water...wasn't totally sure about the bigger waves, but I'm sure she'd get used to that given time as well. Here are some shots from our vacation - we stayed at a great family friendly place, in a 2 bedroom condo with an ocean view. Between the condo and the beach were a kiddie pool, a more "standard" pool, a lazy river and a smaller pool with a big water slide. With the exception of the big slide, we spent a lot of time at each pool and the beach.

The kiddie pool had a great little play set right in the middle of it. We spent a lot of time here, especially when the heat index reached 104!

The slide was a definite favorite!

Mommy, look at all this sand!!

Sweetpea met a sweet pair of 4 year old twins and the three of them were together for two days straight until they had to go home. She's been asking, "Mommy, where are my friends?" ever since. Unfortunately it was pretty humid when I was taking these pictures and this is the only one that turned out.

Sweetpea loved digging in the sand - she did a lot more scratching designs and digging holes this year than last year. She wasn't content to let us build her sandcastles, before they were completed they were pillaged every time.

A bucket, shovel, sand and some water = hours of entertainment!

There is nothing better than a beach vacation with your little ones. We have only done it one time, but we can't wait to do it again. There is just something about the sand and the ocean.
