One Saturday I felt the urge to go to the beach.
We hadn't been in over a year and I wanted to go before school started.
We all piled in the car and drove three hours to Mustang Island.
It was Sophie's first time.
Here she is eating some sand. :)
Samuel was without his electronics so was a little bored,
but boredom is the building blocks of ingenuity and creativity.
That's how it was when I was a kid.
Needless to say he had to use his imagination and self-entertain.
Such a good break from the electronic age we live in!
Ethan and I playing in the waves
Lots of sand castles!
Ethan probably swallowed gallons of salt water
The waves were crashing
Ethan liked getting knocked down by them,
but about gave me a heart attack every time he went down.
But we survived, with sand covering everything and sunburns we would feel for weeks!
Totally worth it.
