This past Saturday, we went to the beach! While Greg was in school, we said we wanted to be back on the east coast to be close to the beach. But actually making that happen with three kids is hard to do...and a little intimidating.
BUT, we packed everyone up on Saturday because the weather was supposed to be great. The drive to the beach is only about 45 minutes from our house and parking is free. We went to the same beach we used to go to when we lived here the first time. The last time we were there, I was 8 months pregnant with our first, so it was quite a change this time!
In years past, Hunter has always been really intimidated by the water and just wanted to play in the sand. The first hour and a half proved to be the same.
(Sorry all the pictures are cloudy. I think there was something on my lense)
and attempted to bury Hunter in the sand.
Kylee enjoyed putting sand from one shovel to another...
This video very accurately represents how she played in the sand also...
After a while, Hunter warmed up to the water and played in it with us. I took him in the shallow part and we splashed around, and then Greg picked him up and they went in deeper. He had so much fun with the waves, Greg actually said he wanted to go deeper than Greg could handle. Hunter is always extremely cautious about new things but I'm glad he warmed up to the waves and trusted mommy and daddy when we said we wouldn't let anything happen to him.
Gunnar had a great time too.
It was such a fun family day. I can't wait to do it again!
