The kidlets LOVE the beach.

I just wish we didn't bring so much of the beach home with us.

I could do without all that sand.

great pictures, my kids love the beach. really water & sand can keep them entertained for hours anywhere, doesn't have to be the beach.

We love the beach, too. It really hasn't been warm enough here this year to go. Hoping it gets warmer so we can go.

Amy said...

Soo with you on the sand! Love all the photos...don't you also love how the children ALWAYS sleep so well after a day at the beach.. I do :)

Lisa (Jonnysmommy) said...

Oh I know! There would be sand in your shoes, shorts...clothes, in the car...ugh!

I haven't taken my son to a beach yet. I think the closest one is 6 or 7 hours away! I may avoid it all together. :-)

Megan said...

So fun!!! We love the beach, too!

Melissa said...

Yeah man, part in parcel of playing at the beach, especially if there's no shower up at the end of the sand beginning of the road to wash yourself up with.
I think a little vacumme in the car though every now and then is worth being able to go to the beach.
It's the biggest thing or one of, that I miss about NZ.

Gunnisac Sandersons said...

Oh, I would just love to go to the beach! i wish I could live in California. Yours is truly a blessed life Angie, and well deserved!

Gosh they are cuters. Now can you share your beach. I want so badly so bad to be close to a beach!

If I didn't have to leave the mountains I would love to live by the beach!

Mama Kat said...

I like the view of a beach, but I hate sand too, and not just in my house. I also am not a fan of saltwater. Soooo...just count me out for the next trip.

LOVE beach pictures though!!! Especially yours. ;)

Amazing.

No more words....

scrappysue said...

Shannon said...

I am so with them! I swear I must have been a crustacean in my last life because the beach feels like home. That being said, now that I am no longer a sea creature, I too could do without the sand everywhere:) Love the photos!

Laura said...

Love your beach pics. Fun times for sure!
