First Beach Day of The Season

The weather here has been amazing the past couple weeks, high 70's or low 80's, sunny & breezy. It's a nice change from the wacky late winter early spring weather we had and the 3 solid days of rain a couple weeks ago.

Friday night, Donna & I decided Saturday was the day, we were heading to the beach. You see, a lot of preparation & planning had to go into it since "the beach" is a long 20 minute ride for us, lol...

It's amazing what difference one season can make. The boys were barely walking, Kellan wasn't at all last summer, so we wheeled the boys through the sand down to the waters edge in their Choo Choo Wagon & then let them play. Saturday the boys walked from the parking lot, across the boardwalk & onto the beach, we pulled their wagon with toys & towels & drinks in it but it was much easier to pull through the sand without 3 little boys in it! :)

Running for the beach!!!

Kellan barely made it off the boardwalk before plunging into the sand, he would have been happy to sit right there at the edge playing in the sand but we really wanted to get a little further onto the beach, lol...


Garren headed straight for the water with Donna & I settled in a spot with fluffy sand for Caden & Kellan to play in. Once Kellan spotted Garren in the water though he made a bee line to them! I quickly grabbed Caden & joined them.

Caden looks like he's about to grab a fish ;)
The tide was out so there were smaller pools of shallow water all over the shore line, perfect for little people! The boys plunged right in! I was sort of surprised but pleased they had no hesitation. They played in the water, dug in the sand, Garren visited some dogs & we had a blast watching them play. I really thought they would be more interested in running since that is what they like to do in wide open spaces, it was a nice surprise that they were content pretty much in one area (& we weren't running after them.)

I'd take the boys everyday if I had someone to go with us, but I don't dare take them by myself. I grew up on the beach & love that they will too!


  1. I am so jealous that you are only 20 minutes away from the beach. That is one place I would love to take my trio but I am not sure we are up for the drive from INDIANA!!!

  2. That is so awesome. One day very soon you may feel better about going by yourself.

  3. So great! These pictures are fantastic!
