Perfect day for a beach trip — nice and overcast, after a bit of playing in the rain for the first hour, and a thunderstorm-induced snack break at the pavilion. All in all, it was a blast. All 4 kids loved the sand and the waves. Josh loved stomping sand sculptures and chasing seagulls; Noah loved jumping the waves and searching for seashells. Amelia loved floating on the swells and digging in the wet sand. Jacob loved swimming in the waves and napping under the umbrella. Mom and Dad loved watching the kids have as much fun as we remember having, and feeling a little like kids again ourselves.
