Yesterday At The Beach

 A beautiful day in the mid 60's
We had to head out to the beach
to construct a giant "water home" or "wa wa home"
as Little Red says here.
He is the foreman of the job
and boy is he bossy!
 She is one of the workers!
She works so hard and talks about how hard she works.
"Oops mommy, I'm sorry I hit your head with my shovel.
Here let me get the sand out of your hair, ummm, mommy,
I think you need a bath."
 That water she's getting better not be for my bath.
 Oh, he's got big plans, big, big plans!
 Might have to start calling him "Little Whitey" instead of "Little Red"
 He's even telling the big kids what to do for his water home.
 And they are doing it!
 Well, some of them are.
Back to work everyone!

 Time for the water!

Proud foreman here

Thanks for spending the afternoon with us at the beach!
I'm so blessed to be able to watch these kiddos all day long!

(I worked too, believe me, I dug and dug too!)


  1. We should have some gorgeous days this week-perfect for playing at the beach! Looks like they are having so much fun!

  2. Yes, you ARE blessed to watch those darling kiddos all day long! And with the surf as your background... oh, how ideal. My grandkiddos were doing sorta the same thing at the same time. Except in snow. :)

    1. My kids are hoping for snow when we come home in March. Me? Not so much!

  3. Fun to see REAL live videos of all the fun. I would be at the ocean every day! Cold sunny cloudy raining...just looks like so much fun. I also want to be 5 again. Bridget looks like she is having the time of her life.

    Thanks for taking us to THE BEACH!

  4. Thanks, Jamie! And especially for giving me the gift of the sound of the surf. Ahhhh!

  5. Isn't it funny how the littlest sib ends up being the boss? They're just so darn CUTE! Fran Man is totally in charge around here. My kids are riding their bikes in the mud today. I'm pretty sure they think it's Spring. Don't have the heart to burst their bubble just yet.

    1. I remember when I was in the hospital with Nicholas, one of the nurses told me, look out, he'll be in charge from now on! I think it's true with each baby!

      We are hoping for spring when we come home!

  6. Your photos make me long to return to the beach with our boys. I truly love how they can play for hours upon end in the sunshine, sand and water. It's a heavenly playground! I have been reading your blog for a couple of years now, but have been disconnected from everyone for the past year or so, since my husband has been sick and we've had anther baby. It's nice to finally be able to find a few moments here and there to read some of my favorites. You always have such lovely posts!

  7. Nice to "meet" you Susan! I love how you described the beach, "a heavenly playground" I agree.

    Prayers for your husband. Glad you commented!
