The beach day 10 and 11

Day 10 felt like more of the same.
But a good same.  Who is going to complain with pool, then beach, then nap, then repeat?

 There was not a huge amount of boogy boarding.
The water was not as calm
 Building some more sandcastles.
See Audrey in the top knot?  So cute
I think Audrey did a lot of supervising and shell decorating when it came to the sand castles
The girls found this red ball at the pool.  Celia pretended it was a crystal ball.
Then she hid the ball from Audrey and sat on it to hide it.
I of course lifted Celia up several times and let Audrey grab the ball.
The girls had a blast which makes me think again that regular toys are totally unnecessary.

Day 11- Our last day at the beach.  We still were not 100% positive on this day that it would be our last.  We could stay 1 more day however my Mom and I did not want to risk getting stuck in traffic for hours with the two girls.  The day was VERY hot and the ocean not quite as calm.  We had some rain in the morning but we did not some beach and pool time.

 So it rained and the girls went out in it.
Celia could care less if she gets wet, though she is obsessed with her umbrella
 But shockingly this happened.  
See the lower lip?  Yep, very upset that her favorite dress is wet.
I could have sat a lot about this situation however I just changed her into a fresh dress.

Modeling on her boogy board

Yep, still cute and still a trouble maker

 Despite looking so rough, once you got out there it was okay
Celia wiped out on the boogy board because getting in and out was tricky.
You ask the kid above though and she will tell you it is fine and that she can go in her self...

Day 8 and 9

Pete left on the morning of day 8 and it just left all of us girls.  Some interesting things happened.

I have no idea, they just played together and then appeared again.
Celia was in pants and Audrey was in Celia's nightgown and something wrapped around her head.

Celia and I had our Mommy and Me outing.  
She got an ice-cream cone that was bigger then her head and loved it.
Mint-Chocolate chip, quite an adult flavor.


The above 2 pictures are of Celia in a hole.
Someone dug a hole and she decided to put her chair in it.
No clue why but it kept her quiet and happy.

So on day 8 Audrey announced every few minutes that Mr. Gill was coming on Tuesday.  She was happy that it was Monday and so she could also say Mr. Gill is coming tomorrow.  He is Mom Mom's friends and the girls really like him.  So on day 8 I was happy to inform Audrey that it was the day of Mr. Gill's arrival.

I took the two of them to the pool in the morning.
I love their little matching suits and Audrey's rare top knot hairdo.
She typically tolerates that for 5 seconds.

The trouble maker

My boogie board star.

The girls making yet another one.
Audrey was in her puddle jumper because she had been in the ocean again with me.
The water was still relatively calm on this day.

Day 7 at the beach

Day 7 was Pete's last day at the beach. He took Audrey and Celia to the pool and then we went out to lunch.  We actually met a family that lived close to us at lunch.  In the afternoon everyone went to the beach and the water was very, very calm. It was strange! It felt like we were in a lake rather then the ocean.  Audrey, Celia, and I hung out for a long time in the water.   Both Audrey and Celia had time on the boogie board.  When Audrey was on the boogie board she tried to tell me that she was okay and that I could leave.  Uh no.



 I have to share a meltdown on camera
 Thinking about the injustice she was facing (there was no chair brought down for her)
 I want my chair
Okay fine, but I am not happy

Day 5 and 6 at the beach

On day 5, we took a walk to the pier as a family. We saw tons of little sand crabs. Celia and Audrey built a sandcastle with Pete. Audrey ventured into the water with Mommy.  Celia and Audrey had a great time playing in the water together.  Audrey wanted to STAY all day in the water.  A wave would get her (while I was holding her) and she would just shrug it off.





The next day the water was not quite as calm and Celia crashed with her boogie board.  She scraped her belly a little bit.  There was a long path of shells that were right in the way of a professional boogie boarder like Celia.  Audrey again, could have stayed in the water forever.  Pete also came in the water with us.   Poor Celia later scraped her nose on the bottom of the pool.

Day 4- Audrey photo bomb

Day 4 brought beautiful weather but a grumpy and tired Celia.

The waves out there were taller then her
The water was really cold
But she had the time of her life







These are my most favorite photos of my sweet girl

Day 3 of the beach

The sun came out on day 3 at the beach.  Audrey and I started the day out early by taking a long walk together.  Okay so she road in the BOB while I pushed.  We had some stares as I was pushing a child eating a banana, wearing a hello kitty nightgown with hello kitty undies peeking out, and red fleece striped slippers.  She looked cute but interesting especially with the fleece slippers as it was not in the least bit cold.
I caught the sunrise in the morning

Celia did not waste time pulling the tube down to the waves.
The only problem was that the storm the day before brought in frigid water temps.

Not sure why Audrey all of a sudden had an issue with the beach today.
But she did and then got over it quickly.

 Audrey reminding Celia of the dangers in the water.
 Audrey following everything Celia does.
 I filled that bucket up 1, 597 times so she could play in the water and 
keep her precious hands and feet clean.  I finally gave up and told her to go down to the water.
My pretty little almost 7 year old.
