The Beach

The past few weeks have been so busy for us. I am excited that we don't have any upcoming trips planned and can just get back into a routine and enjoy playing in our yard. Two weekends ago we went to the beach. Neither of my kids have been insanely into the beach up until this point. In fact last year, Connor didn't even want to get out of the car. So just making it to the sand was a big deal and we managed to coax him to not sit right at the entrance to the beach. Isla, on the other hand, wouldn't even touch the sand and freaked out when any got on her. Fun beach trip, right?

Soon enough Ian and his dad were able to coax Connor closer to the water to make a sand castle. Well, the tide was coming in and one thing lead to another and before I knew it, Connor was soaked. 

^^ Just look at that smile! 

And it was like a trigger. All the sudden the water was super fun and Connor went for it. He kept running into the freezing cold water. He was chasing the tide and enjoying himself so much. Here's the end result:

Nothing a bath and some new clothes couldn't fix! Isla didn't exactly warm up to the beach the way Connor did, as evidenced below. But she did allow a toe to touch the water before she realized it was freezing and didn't want to touch it again. As for the sand, she never did warm up to it.  

^^ Connor used to do the same can see a similar shot of him like that here

And one more, just because I think it is rather funny. A little sequence showing Connor running and tripping. Don't worry, it didn't ruin his mood. He was loving getting all wet and dirty. Such a boy! 


  1. These are some gorgeous pictures of Connor! They look like they should be in a magazine, with his collared shirt, and dirty knees. What a great time! I hope my children love the beach as much as I do.

    1. My mother in law did not like that Connor was getting all dirty, but I am one that figures there is always more clothes and it is better to have fun and get dirty than stay clean and be bored ;)

  2. I want to take the kids to the beach but I'm so afraid that one of my crazy little will act like that about the sand. That picture is too funny, with her feet up like that.

  3. Haha.. that totally is a photo with Connor and Isla doing the same pose. funny! The photos of Connor falling are also so funny! You have such a precious family!!
