J has been talking about building a sand castle at the beach since about January. So, of course, that is the first thing he did when we got there. Here is his first of many sand castles that he built.
N immediately ran for the ocean as soon as we hit the beach. I guess I should have put him in a bathing suit.
N models the shirt for this year's beach trip. We all wear our t-shirts one morning and get a group picture. This year there were only 43 of us there for picture day. This is the 8th year of doing this and the 8th t-shirt. I think my husband still has all 8 and wears them on a regular basis. I think he's the only one who does.
A closeup of my little cutie. You can see some extended family in the background. We got together for family gatherings on several of the mornings.
With some prompting from her mom, Mary decided to share a shell with N. They then continued to share shells back and forth for a while. Madeline joined in. J joined in. It was really sweet.
