Beach Bums

My kids have been asking us to take them to the beach for a long time. Like, years, probably. We finally decided to take the plunge and head out for a day trip. 
 Tyler loved the water. He wanted to be in the water the whole time. 
 Rex loved the sand. He would have dug and dug all day long. 
 The pretty little girl just hung out and observed, pretty much her MO.
 Abraham did a little of everything. 

 It was super windy. The umbrella didn't last long. 

 Running on the beach,
 and dancing in the sand. 
 I love this picture of Rex hugging Ken. 
 Annemarie took a nap on my shoulder. She doesn't like sleeping anywhere but her bed, so I cherished getting to snuggle with her for an hour. 
 We settled right in. 
 More beach dancing. 

Ken worked so hard to get pictures of the boys jumping. A couple turned out pretty good. 
 Right before we left, I introduced the boys to the concept of burying someone in the sand. They thought it was awesome. 
Rex wanted to bury himself over and over. Then he'd get up out of the sand like a zombie saying, "brains". 
 We left a little later than planned, and got stuck in some traffic, so we stopped on the way home to get Happy Meals for dinner. I couldn't have been happier with the toy! Usually I'm trying to throw them away as quick as possible. I think these will stick around for awhile. 

 Honestly, the beach really isn't my thing, but the kids had SO much fun I think we'll be heading back before too long.

That looks like so much fun. Too bad that you got so sick when you got home.
