Today we said farewell to July in style with a day at the beach. I adore the beach. Not in a contemplative way. That is way more my wife. She also spends time contemplating how to keep sand out of certain areas of her body--I am way less fussy about such matters. LOL When I was younger I loved running on the beach. Eventually my wrecked knee put an end to that. I still love brisk walks on the beach but love playing with the kids best of all.
This is us playing as the tide was coming in. I could not believe K even managed a shot that got Chet in it too as he was pretty over stimulated by the beach scene today and was flitting around a lot. The waves were perfect for jumping. The breeze was a land breeze so you could warm up when you came out, it was just gorgeous.
It also seemed like such a laid back day to me because I didn't have to watch all 4 kids by myself for the trip. I have not shared beach duties in over 4 years so this was a treat! I do have the 2 littles held in my patented "ninja death grip" in this shot but most of the day I only had one or the other with me at a time.
Lunch was a picnic on the beach--bruschetta on crackers which I adore, with tiny carrots to munch. Chips and punch or iced water. I don't know how a day--or a weekend for that matter--could be any better!
