The Beach

On the way home from Florida, we decided to stop in a spend a few days with my parents at Emerald Isle in NC. The weather was incredible and the girls really enjoyed their first experience on the beach! Once again.. they .. loved.. the water. Salt water in the eyes.. no problem.

The obligatory shot of the babies' first experience with sand..

They ate it. That's right... ate.. it. Everyone who said they wouldn't do that.. you were incorrect.

Here Margot watches how Ada takes to her sandy snack.

And though it looks as though she is only munching her hat strap.. I assure there was a chunk of sand in that chubby little hand.

This is my favorite shot of Margot and me from the trip. They can wave now :)

This is my favorite shot of Ada and me. Nana and Papa took us to the aquarium on the one rainy morning we were there.

It was magical.

When I think about the fact that one day soon I won't be able to snuggled Ada in the Ergo and kiss her hair .. it makes me cry. So I snuggle my girls every chance I get.

Nana helps Margot to see the rays and skates in the petting pool.

It has been a wonderful 3 weeks. Getting to spend the last few days by the coast with Mom and Dad was certainly the icing on the cake. Thanks guys.

Silas consumed a LOT of sand our first few trips to the beach. He rolled around in it and shoveled handfuls into his mouth. Sand was coming out of his ears for a week. It was really fun to see him having so much fun. I am not sure what I would have done with a kid who thought the beach was yucky
