Beach Day

We celebrated Labor Day by going to the beach!  We had such a wonderful time at the beach with the kids, my brother, his girlfriend, and our neighbor.  It was the perfect way to end the summer (although it will still be quite warm for awhile) and get ready for the fall!

Stevie spent the day riding the waves in on the boogie board and also in an inflatable raft that my brother bought for the day.  He was really enjoying the ocean like he never has before.  I think he would've stayed ALL day long if he could have!

Jilly enjoyed the ocean also.  She clung very tight to me and wouldn't really go in with anyone else so I got in there with her.  The water was clear, calm, and warm.  Just like I like it!  She LOVED jumping waves with me and letting them hit against our backs, splashing all around us.  At first she was a little scared of walking on the sand, but by the end of the day, she looked like a regular beach comber :)

Here are some of our fave pics from that day...

Getting the courage to boogie board

Little beach diva... loved lounging in the chair      
In the raft boat, too much fun!

Lovely beach ladies

Maybe no one will notice!

Love the waves

I can do this all day LONG

Oh, what a wonderful day! Here the summer was poor and the see never got especially warm. And now the weather is getting more and more autumn-like :(
