beach day

we were blessed with an amazing weekend with incredible weather – like 80*!

after church last sunday we decided to head to the beach while sean went for a long bike ride.

the kids all wore their hand-me-down wetsuits for the first time and loved them!

the girls had on full suits and stayed in the water for over 3 hours!

silas was in a little less since he only had on a think spring suit.  the water here is so chilly i don’t even like to dip my toes in!

the kids were on the boogie boards for hours, screaming and laughing!

i am loving that i can just sit in my chair and watch them.  i can totally relax and just soak them up.

and i think this guy came home with a few new freckles!

    So cute! I love that last picture of Silas is great. I love going to the beach, but often don’t put my toes in either because it’s too cold.

    That last picture is so cute! I’ve got some freckled kids myself. :)

    We’re headed to Florida in two weeks (after growing up in Cali it is amazing how WARM the water in the Gulf is – it gets as warm as bathwater come August). Anyway, I think my girls are old enough to get them some boogie boards this year (3.5 and 6). Looks like so much FUN!

    Oh I’m looking forward to those days when I can just sit in my beach chair and chill out! Not only is it still like 50 here! But I have a 2 yr old! So it’s going to be still another couple of years before I have to stop hovering!
