Thursday we decided to ditch all the chores around the house and run away to the beach with the kids. I booked a little bungalow for us to hang in and we let the kids just run FREEEEE.
It was awesome. It was chilly in the morning so we dressed warm in layers, but the kids stripped their layers almost as soon as we got there. Kora is always the first to do so!
The best part of the day were the dolphins!!! There were seriously like 3 different packs of about 3-4 dolphins that stayed so close by the shore just playing and bouncing around. If you blow this picture up you can see the fin sticking out of the water. It was so hard to get a good picture of all of them at once...I bet my sister Amy or my friend Candace could have done it, but Amber's just a rookie so this is as good as it gets! Hah. Ps....Thanks Amber for the pictures!
Being on the base beach is so fun because big helicopters like this would keep passing overhead. The kids would wave and scream!!
Izey loved eating sand and shells.
Jake played in the water with his swimmer for a while and then covered back up to be cozy in his sweats like me and Amber. I'm trying to HIDE from being in the picture but instead I just got more IN it. Thank goodness I'm not wearing my green shirt.
Jake SWORE he needed to bring his goggles and snorkel. I talked him outta the snorkel, but the goggles...he persisted. He ended up using them as sunglasses!
looked like Nicole Ritchie,
and played NON STOP in the sand and water and dunes. She is definitely my beach bum, destined for brown leggies and tan lines!
Miah had on pants that got wet so I made him strip to undies. He was ULTRA modest at first, but then he warmed up to being nude. Get a good look at those sand covered legs I had to take home with me...bleck. I hate sand.
Here are the buddies when we first got there, before they both lost their pants.
