Yesterday was a beach day with my friend Amy and her daughter Landrie. Somehow we had the whole beach to ourselves and it was B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L. I pulled up and convinced myself it was silly that we were in bathing suits in January. But once we got out...gorgeous. Such a great day, I love where I live. Totally worth skipping naps (this is what I convinced myself of from 5:00 on when my darlings turned into cranky monsters.) But look how much fun they had. They loved playing in the water (I put the camera down for that part, as they were literally laughing as the waves knocked them over and I scrambled to scoop them up). In fact, I had to coax them out with promises of yummy treats at the towel. Once they gave in they looked at me like I was crazy when the 'special treat' was a PB sandwich. They're getting smarter every day.
