Daylen showing Brody the cars
Delaney having major attitude
We get to the beach and get all our stuff together. I was cracking up on the inside. Have you ever seen that show 'Yes, Dear'? The theme song when they watch the couples in the convertible drive by while they are crossing the street to the beach with tons and tons of crap..... that was us. We had towels, snacks, diaper bags, sand toys, an umbrella, a stroller and who knows what else. We looked ridiculous. But, that's okay, we are a family:)
Here are a TON of beach pictures:
Eric showing Brody what to do
Kaylie getting some sun (although she got way too much and fried)
Daddy and son
Daylen and Eric trying to decide if it's too cold. It was WAY cold, but they went in
Monkey checking everything out
Delaney getting brave (it lasted only a minute though)
This was after he dumped a bucket of sand down his throat. Super scary.... had to smack the crap out of him and then I poured an entire water bottle on his face. Not fun.
Content on the towels
Kaylie let Delaney rub sand all over her back....what a good big sister
Brody sat doing this for 2 hours. He was so peaceful.
I said, "Help Brody look at Mommy!" Apparently, that meant a headlock
I really wanted a picture of all 4 in front of the water, but the babies wouldn't take their eyes off of it.
This one was better....
After the beach, we went back to the hotel and went swimming the much warmer water. Delaney wouldn't get in for some strange reason. Instead she acted like quite the diva.
Brody was tired of being dry....
So Kaylie took him in the water
Daylen was happy to be in warm water....doing back flips as usual
And once again, Delaney was content doing exactly what she wanted.
That's all folks. Thanks for reading about our fun, family vacation. It's so different being the 'grown-up' on the trip. Me being the parent, making sure the little kids and Eric had what they needed, packing the suitcases, trying to find ways to save money etc. It was not at all relaxing, but it was worth every minute. I hope to go on many, many more vacations with my family. I have great memories from vacations growing up and I want that for my kids too.
