Summer Lovin'

Guess what? It's snowing! I know, shocker, right? I am over this whole winter thing, so I thought I would take a trip back into the good ole days o' summer.

Beach
6 years ago we took our first official family vacation to Chincoteague Island, VA. Have you ever heard the story about the horses that cross the river every year? Ya, this is the place where it happens. Unfortunately it didn't work out where we could vacay the week of the horse crossing festivities. Maybe someday.

Anyway, our first trip, GG was 2 years old. Unfortunately she doesn't remember this trip much. We returned the following summer and she remembers a little from that trip. I remember my feet getting burned like never before. Apparently when you're 8+ months pregnant, you're really susceptible to sunburn.

Ok, really, back to my photo strip. The first picture, well, it's really self-explanatory. The girl wanted to go to the beach! The second one is GG exploring the sand and trying to bury herself. In the 3rd picture, we found a sand crab! I went to Nags Head, NC many times as a kid and that was my favorite thing to do on the beach. So of course I had to teach my little girl how to find the little buggers in all that sand!

The last picture is my absolute favorite! It's GG and her dad walking hand-in-hand towards the ocean.

Hopefully some day we can take another trip to the beach. Little Dude has no idea what the beach and the ocean look like except in pictures or on tv. He would have a ball digging! Well, I guess technically he was at the beach. Remember I did say we went when I was very pregnant. But that probably doesn't really count, does it?



Until next time....
