Life's a beach

Last weekend we made our first visit to the beach as a family of four.  It was Nicholas's first time dipping his toes in the ocean and it was Sam's first trip back to the beach this year.  They both loved it!  Sam is turning into such a kid and it's so much fun to do things like this now that he's older.  Of course with two boys so little, lugging around all the accessories and worrying about feedings, naps and diaper changes makes a trip to the beach not as relaxing for Mom and Dad as it was in the days before kids, but nevertheless, it's a new adventure and has its own joys.  Watching Sam run around laughing and splashing and telling me how much he loved it hours and now days later made it all worth it.  It was a lot of fun and I'm looking forward to more trips this year and especially next year when Nicholas can splash and play too.  :)

Packing for a day at the beach for an infant and toddler is a daunting task.

Digging is hard work

Stopping to people watch

Me and my fellow umbrella camper.  Nicholas and I spent most of our time under the umbrella.  I can't wait for next year when we can PLAY more!  It was pretty relaxing though.  We people watched, soaked up the sounds of the ocean and had fun watching Sam run all over the place.  :)

Despite getting these pictures of this guy wide awake, he spent most of his first day at the beach sleeping.  The sound of those waves are relaxing!
Just chillin'

Enjoying the view

My bud looking so cool with his shades.  haha!
