At the Beach!

After 20 I-have-to-go-to-the-bathrooms, 47 he's-touching-mes, and 105 Are-we-there-yets, we finally made it to the beach! The boys had so much fun and loved every minute of it! The weather forecast is supposed to be gorgeous! Justin loved the sand - and throwing it, but he was afraid of the ocean. He didn't want the water to even touch his feet. Sometimes he forgot where he was and then he caught the end of a wave coming for him and ran the other way crying! He didn't even want to jump in puddle with his brothers.

There is a big storm close to Jamaica that is making big waves at the Jersey shore. They are bigger than I have seen in a long time. Brian and Sean were riding waves on their boogie boards and then I was pulling them around in a blow-up boat. Brian was in for the long haul and the huge waves but Sean got scared and wanted out! Brian even got knocked out a few times but came up smiling. He said he hit his nose on the bottom and got sand up his nose!

Sean's words of wisdom for the day - "Boy this ocean sure tastes salty!" This kid cracks me up!I will very sporadic internet access until we get home next Sunday. I might go through slight withdrawal, thank goodness for internet cafes! I will try to update when I can but if not, expect a ton of updates and pictures next week!

Justin loves to dig!
sand angels
sandy boys

this as much water as he will tolerate -
wet sand
goofy grins
finding shells
jumping waves!

I have to go to the bathroom so are we there yet? THe pictures of your kids look great. My niece did the same thing as Justin when it came to the ocean. She wanted no parts of it. I think it is just so big and scares them. Have a great vacation.

Love all the pictures! But I have a favourite - the first one!!!

What great photos... There is nothing like a holiday by the sea. Have an amazing salty, sandy time!

I love your eye for photos. Of course, you have three gorgeous boys so it's not like you could take a bad picture of them right?! I wish we had an ocean within a short drive but a lake with sand on the bank is about as close as we have. Oh well, Sean would probably like it better because the water isn't quite as salty!

It all looks heavenly, so glad you're having fun.

Just wanted to say au revoir as we're off on hols for a week tomorrow and am pretty sure no internet access.

Looking forward to the 'are we there yets' tomorrow and hopefully as good a time as your pics look!

BTW - I adore that one of your littlie on the wet sand, it is beautiful.

Hi from ICLW, That looks like a blast. I just got back from a 20 hour road trip with a 4 year old. I hear you on the 500 bathroom stops. Geez!

What beautiful little boys you have! It looks like you had a great day at the beach! Best of luck with the adoption process.

Sassy said...

Oh wow. It is so so freezing cold and miserable here at the moment. I can feel the warm summer days in your photos. Looks like great fun. Thanks for sharing. Gorgeous photos by the way.
