Weekend At the Beach!

UPDATE: I posted this last night, then went over to I Heart Faces (seriously, how do you make those cute little hearts?) this morning and saw they are hosting 'My Story in Photos: Vacation Edition' this week. Ok, so this wasn't really a vacation, it was more of a weekend get-a-way, but I'm linking there anyway. You can head over there too and check out some other vacations, maybe dream a little, make yourself a margarita, put on your flip flops and take a virtual vaca or two!

I'm not posting a Not Me! post this week. I was sick, again. Just when I thought I was feeling better, I took a turn for the worse. I have bronchitis and spent about half the week literally doing nothing other than shivering when the chills hit, throwing off the blankets once the Motrin kicked in, coughing and asking my sweet girls to take care of me. If I were writing a Not Me! post, I would tell you I did not lie lifeless on the sofa while my son slowly but surely ripped tissue into many small pieces and piled them on top of me. Even if it did make him sit still and be quiet for a few minutes, no way would I have actually allowed that to happen.

So, since I don't have any Not Me's to post, I'll finally post about our weekend at the beach.

My in-laws were offered a friend's condo at the beach for the weekend, and they very graciously invited us to tag along. They may be questioning that decision after spending two days and nights in a very small condo with us and our rather loud and nosey little boy!

We all had a great time. The weather was absolutely perfect....not too hot, and a perfect ocean breeze. The Little Man had a blast on the beach. Luckily he didn't try to venture too far into the water. The Sisters loved playing with their brother in the pool, playing in the sand and walking on the beach looking for shells and shark teeth. We found plenty of shells, but sadly, no shark teeth.

I loved taking pictures all weekend. Especially under the pier. The light under there was amazing!

My great niece, Miss B. Man, that makes me sound old!

Yes, my son is being eaten by a wave. He loved it!

After an appetizer of sand and shells, a lunch of hot dog, Goldfish and pasta salad, the poor little guy was pooped. We watched him nod off until he finally just fell over.

We get to do this again in July for a full week....different condo, different beach, same cool kids. I cannot wait!

What a ton of fun that looked like! I love the beach - and, they can eat as much as they want, there are ZERO calories in sand! :)

Great pictures!
