Oh how I love “beach time”…
I am naturally a very laid back person and beach time just fits me perfectly!
So yesterday was our first day of our last family beach vacation before we add Lucas to the mix …we went to on of my favorite places on the planet…
I am lucky enough to have been in some pretty amazing places in this world and can say that even though the Outer Banks just aren’t that far from “home” they are our “happy place”.
I know we could go to some other amazing beach…probably my second favorite in the world was Guana Cay Island but jumping in a car and being there in a few hours just isn’t possible. One day I will get back there with Daryl and the kiddos…cause that place is magical as well!
But for now…Pea Island and the Outer Banks win.
So first day on the beach went something like this…
Lots of ball tossing…although Spike was like “ya right! You think I am going to give up this ball! ”
and look!! I found an eye ball!
but it was hot so we made them a little “tent” they seemed to love…
and of course it wouldn’t be a trip to the beach without Haley digging to China and relaxing in her homemade “beach chair”…
Ok I am done whining and they are all ready turning to a tan but I am still amazed at the changes a baby can make.
Oh and because Aunt Jill couldn’t make it down with us I promised her a few little video snippets of Cookie on the beach…we miss you Jill! Poor Aunt Jill..we always tease her that Cookie has no idea how to be “a dog”…she spends the majority of her time with Jill being the “baby”. Now you have the back story on why we laugh that Cookie must hate hanging out with us and being “a dog”…but on the beach…she loved “being a dog”! At least till we got home and “being a dog” involved an “authentic dog bath” under a garden hose in the yard.
Oh the horror!
She is finally talking to us again though
