beach: day 4

Tuesday was our last day at the beach with our cousins. (Actually, it was our last day with them for a really long time because they are moving to Utah today. 😭 )

So instead of crying like the emoji, let's remember this fond time together.

I wish y'all could hear this conversation (and so many others like it) between Selah and Jesse.

This little lady is Aaron's only other brown-eyed girl.

Time to go.

It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday. (Thanks, Boyz II Men.)

We miss you already.

beach: day 3: rainbow

The rain finally stopped after dinner, so we headed to the beach. We pass by this Eagles logo driveway on our walk, and the kids wanted a photo.


The underpass below the boardwalk was flooded, so we walked up and over.

(Hello, handsome.)

There's a line where the sky meets the sea . . .

The sun started to come out.

Lydia in the sea foam.

A rainbow appeared.

beach: day 3

There was rain in the forecast for Monday, so I started googling for rainy day activities and discovered it was also National Lighthouse Day with celebrations and free tours at the lighthouse. So after breakfast,

we rounded up the gaggle of six kids (Selah and Malec didn't join us) and Big Guy and Nonna and started walking north.

Well, most of us walked.

We did the tour of the lighthouse.

We got some Coast Guard coloring books from the Coast Guard tent.

Then, we attempted to walk back to the house along the trail.

We found some more of those wooden play structures, but it started to rain. Fortunately, we found an ark.

And Uncle Ryan came to drive us home, so we didn't get soaked.

Sorry that we got your car all sandy, Uncle Ryan.

Time for afternoon naps! (I napped with Jesse and Anna, so I actually don't know what happened after this point.)
