Beach Trip

We planned our beach trip based on when everyone was available to go...  it seems like in the past we plan it on when the weather will be nice too.  We didn't really consider the weather.  Since it had been like mid 90's we figured it would all work out okay.  It was very overcast and foggy looking, the wind of course was blowing and a nice mist in the air, most had jackets on.  I think all the kids except my two little ones went into the water and got DRENCHED!  The weather didn't stop them.
We found ourselves at Ocean Shores, we normally go to Seaside.  Nice thing about the WA beach, you can drive on the beach, so it made it nice for Larry who broke his ankle.
We had TONS of leftover hot dogs and buns from our 4th of July get together.  We took them and had a little bbq on the beach as well.
The kids all had a good time.  We brought chairs, blankets, towels... all the needed things for the beach.
Even the older girls seemed to be having a good time.  They were on the lookout for "hot guys" although Chloe saw one and then realized, it was her Uncle Kelly.  LOL
Aunt Tracy ran the grill for all of us to eat.
The little ones seemed to enjoy the sand.  We got lots of fun beach toys for them to play with.
Parker did a nose dive in the sand.  Poor guy!
Larry didn't really do a whole lot... he just sat around with his leg up!  Poor Larry, 4th of July was much like that too.  He had surgery a few days before our get together.  We kept giving him a hard time about just sitting around being lazy, making his wife do everything. 

Conrad liked eating the sand...  It seems like all babies do.  It is so gritty and weird.  I think it is all good until it gets in their eyes... that one is no fun!
Some of even mingled with the local people there.  I hear WA has a law, "Click it or Ticket"  hehehe  Although my dad just said the officer was asking him to make a donation for the city there...  I think it would be more accurate to call it a ticket!
After a long day at the beach, it makes you really tired!  But if you notice, she is still wearing her seat belt... unlike others that went to the beach.

gotta wear that seatbelt! love that picture. It's crazy how twisted up kids can fall asleep in the car and wake up refreshed! glad you're having good times with your family.
