Beach Bums

I took the kids to a local (tiny) beach today after swimming lessons for a picnic lunch and some play time with friends.  Luckily, I’m apparently much better at applying sunscreen to the kids than I am to myself.  (Note to self: invest in a beach umbrella.)

Toes in the sand...

Anna in the sand.

"Anna" in the sand. (We tried writing "Carolyn", but the waves were too quick!)

Come on in, the water's fine!

They were trying to create a tide pool, I believe. Or maybe the world's biggest mud pie?

Filling up the bucket.

It was a perfect day for the beach.  Not terribly hot, sunny with a few clouds now and then for a bit of shade, and breezy.  The kids had a blast, and we stayed much longer than planned…so our craft project of the day will have to happen tomorrow!
