A Trip to the Beach

Going to the beach - even if it's just for a few hours - requires a lot of stuff. Sometimes it seems like we're moving instead of just taking a morning to have an outing with friends. We have to pack up the back of the car with everything we might possibly need:

A folding chair for me, straw mats for the kids.

Towels.

Boogie Boards.

Sunscreen.

Snorkel gear.

Lunch.

Water bottles.

More sunscreen.

Mosquito repellent.

Camera.

Sand buckets and toys.

By the time we haul it all to the car and then haul it all to the beach, we're almost too exhausted to swim.

That's actually not true. The girls all had a really good time finding hermit crabs on the beach, making sand castles, and boogie boarding in the waves.

The boys all sat in a tree and ignored the ocean, the adults, and their little sisters.
They did come down long enough to eat lunch.
