The beach!

We had a perfect beach day last week. It was HOT. I took the kids to Nahant by myself and it was great. I bought an umbrella and attempted to use it but it blew away twice so I put it away.
We spent most of the time sitting in the shallow water hysterically laughing as the waves hit us. We had a mad mud fight. It was so much fun! We were covered from head to toe.
We also ran around in the water chasing each other and kicking the water at each other.
They spent some time digging in the sand near the blanket but not a whole lot.

Maddie's hair is getting so long.

Random thumbs up to the ocean.

Has anyone ever seen a seagull stand on another? They did this for quite a few minutes and even walked around like that.

After three years of taking them to the beach I finally remembered to bring powder with me. I'll never forget again. It works GREAT to get sand off.

On the way home I took Lynn Shore Drive and decided to stop at Red Rock Park. We ran around a little but Maddie was horribly whiney so we didn't stay long.

Gorgeous pics. Oh, how I miss the Atlantic Ocean. Warm enough to sit in, and gentle rolling waves at the edge. :( The Pacific Ocean this far north is frigid all year, to the point of numbness.

I LOVE Jackson's shirt. You pick the best clothes for them. :)
