home again, home again

Well, we are back from the beach. I have so many pictures to choose from but I will share only a few. We had a wonderful time. The weather was beautiful, the water was nice, the shells were found, the skin was protected, and the sand...well that was everywhere. We even brought some home with us...unintentionally, of course.

We spent most of our time on the beach. Beach after breakfast...beach after dinner. There were a lot of baths and a lot of drain-clogging sand. We walked and walked in search of shells and shark teeth. We found a lot of both. By the end of the trip the kiddos were even finding shark teeth. We built sand castles and dug really deep holes. We drew in the sand and watched the seagulls. Okay, we chased them, but we were still watching them. We also went to some shops and played a delightful round of mini golf. Tim made the only hole in one, but the kids came close. Me? Not so much.
Today we are trying to get back into our routine. We are still waiting for the sun to appear. It's been raining since we got home on Saturday...and evidently it rained most of the time we were gone. Great for the garden. My tomatoes plants tripled in size in just one week! No kidding! It's all growing and growing fast. Once the sun comes out we'll be weeding and cutting grass and planting more little plants that I started before we left.
Ah, it is good to be home. Happy Tuesday! xo ANG

Sounds like a wonderful time. I find sand in my house too, but it is just from the sandbox at school and I do not have wonderful beach memories to go with it:)
