Life's a Beach

There is a sign that hangs in the condo that we stayed at that reads, "If you are lucky enough to be at the beach, you are lucky enough!"

I feel like we adopted that motto throughout the cold days of our trip. Our last day in FL was absolutely beautiful and we enjoyed it to the fullest! It was a day at the beach!

It is amazing how much work goes into getting ready for the beach. It reminds me of going camping. You are supposed to be living minimally and instead you end up cramming half of your household into your car to go. Packing lightly has never been a talent of mine.
So off we go to the beach with our bags packed.
Lunches? Check.
Water? Check.
Towels? Check.
Sunglasses? check.
Sunscreen? check.
shovels?Pails?toys? check.check.check.
camera? check.
and the list goes on...

But somehow we got all settled in and my little diva seemed to be enjoying herself. She really has no interest in being anywhere near the ocean, so she was happy to be one of the big girls and lay out on her towel.
She had no reservations about playing in the sand. Apparently she remembered the snow angels that she made in the snow and decided that the sand was another good medium to try her artwork on...but she was a little disappointed with the outcome. I still thought it was cute!
Ian spent hours digging a large hole and hauling water in his bucket to dump in the hole.
I am not really sure what he was trying to accomplish, but he was determined and worked tirelessly doing it!
Once he poured the water into the hole, he raced back to the waves to refill his bucket! It made me tired just watching him!
