We had a great time at the beach over the 4th. The weather was pretty great, minus a tropical storm which gave us a full day of rain--but occasionally days like that can be fun too :)
perfect summer mornings
There was some sand play...like Daddy would work really hard on sand castles and then the kids would destroy them :)
The buckets were still a big hit this year...Nora now had a partner to hang out in the buckets with her.
This girl LOVED the beach and water this year. She wanted to spend every second of her time down there. We tried our best to oblige.
the twins played real hard...
and Davis joined in whenever he could
Daddy dug out pools most days for the kids to play in
D really liked to take a chair down to the surf and sit. That's also my favorite thing to do, so we spent a lot of time doing that.
Nora did so well body boarding with Daddy this year, we took her to get her own board. She was so excited and proud of herself.

We're very thankful to Pop Pop and Grandma for another fun beach trip.
On our way home we like to stop at Prov Co to get some yummy food...its my favorite place (and lots of other people's fave place too, considering the line that had formed when we were leaving)

Boiled Shrimp, Crab Cakes and Cucumber Salad....ahhhh
