I ventured to the beach today with the girls and myself. This is the first time this season. I manage fine at the pool but was a bit nervous about the ocean. It's very different then the pool especially with little ones. I have to say the girls were amazing. Everyone listened and we all were safe and had a wonderful day in the sun.
I forgot how much I LOVE the beach. I love watching the ocean and hearing the waves. I love watching my girls enjoy building sand castles and jumping the waves. I grew up at the beach. It's what we did everyday all summer long. I miss the feeling you get when you are at the beach. No, not sun burn. We are big on sunblock :-) I'm talking about the relaxed feeling. The forgetting your troubles for a day and enjoying the beauty of the ocean feeling. I feel so blessed that we live so close to the beach. I now get to help build fun summer memories with my girls. I hope that they grow up loving the beach as much as I do.
The unbelievable part is how darn tired you get from being there all day. I thought for sure the girls would be wiped out. They all stayed awake and even had more energy to play when we got home.
I on the otherhand will probably go to bed after I get them settled for the night.
What a perfect day! I can't wait to do it again.
