The next day we headed to the beach pretty early. We took a walk on the pier and watched the surfers for a while. I had to include this picture of P. She is a pretty big nose picker, well, not so much picks, but she likes her finger up there.
The day was very overcast and the water wasn't too cold, we all got pretty burnt, even my legs, which never happens. The kids faces were ok since I did have the smarts enough to sunscreen them.
Jacob made me laugh, he is always finding stuff and he got this huge thing of seaweed and drug it all the way down the beach to where we were, passersby couldn't help but step on and pop it. Jacob also found lots of dead crabs to bring to our sand castle, which the flies loved, thanks Jake.
I love making sand castles, so the kids humored me on this and Ty helped with the mote, there is even a little pool. The castle is much smaller than I imagined but it's nice, plenty big for our shrunken family to live in. The boys wanted to watch the tide come in and destroy it but we didn't stick around long enough.
Had to get one of us, I'm trying to get us in a few pictures here and there so my kids know that we were with them!
The boys have been into Indiana Jones lately because of the video game and they found these seaweed whips and had a great time whipping them.
I told them to be careful or they would whip themselves. Jacob got his shoulder pretty good, there was a red welt for a few days.
