Family Beach Day!

Our lives seem to be exceptionally busy…and weekends are usually no reprieve. There is always somewhere to go, something to do. But this morning? We had nothing on the agenda. We live 2.6 miles from the beach – why not have a spontaneous family day with our toes in the sand?

Well…all except Little Miss who wanted her feet nowhere close to the sand, no matter how much effort it took.

(She literally hung out in this position for several minutes, with her feet suspended in the air, until my husband laid out the towel for us to sit on. Hilarious.)


These photos (from a friend who happened to be at the same beach at the same time – don’t you love a small town?) make me realize that I need to spend a lot more time with my “real camera” instead of relying on the convenience of my cell phone camera. Anyone else in that boat?


My guys had a great time digging tunnels in the sand…    beachday6


They tried to get Little Miss to join them…



But she was far more interested in just laying back and relaxing in the sun.  beachday7

Could there be a better view for naptime?



What an awesome morning. It’s such a reminder to take advantage of the beautiful things around us that we often take for granted.

What is something near you that you have been meaning to do, but never seem to find the time?

  1. They’re getting so big!!! <3

    So jealous you're near the beach. And I've been thinking lately I need to use my "real" camera more…and then I don't. YOU CAN'T INSTAGRAM FROM IT.

    I love reading your blog bc you are always talking about things that are happening to me at the same time. I could really relate to everything in today’s post. We are always so busy in my house and we had a free weekend to finally spend time together as a family. It was the best weekend I have had in a long time!

  3. Oh my goodness she is hysterical with her feet up and that look on her face when they are trying to get her to play! ha. My cell phone takes better pictures than my camera minus the DSLR and we don’t take that out for just a trip to the beach ha.
