The Beach

We love going on adventures as a family!  Swimming at the beach (in the middle of the mountains) was a grand adventure.
ready to go!

When we got to the pond, we were the only ones there.  It was a little windy, but not too bad.  We unpacked our stuff and got down to some serious playing.

I was excited to pull out our Holiday Picnic Mat.  We bought it in Dubai and I shook out sand from the UAE when I pulled the mat out of the bag.
Ellie is getting very adventurous!  She dug right in (literally) and was just busy the whole time we were there.  Lynnie is in a cute stage where she wants to check everything out and observe for a while, but then she wants to do everything Ellie is doing.

 It took some experimentation to get the right ratio of water to sand to make the perfect buckets of sand for the sandcastle.

 Lynnie was content for a long time to just sit on the mat.  And eat snacks.
 Oh well.  It fell over.  Let's keep trying!

 This duck entertained us for a long time.  And came super close to us to pick up a piece of potato chip that Ellie had dropped.

 Success!  Lynlee was excited to scoop water.

 Sand castle super stars!
 Ellie loves making funny faces.  And Lynnie fell asleep almost immediately.
 And had a good nap on Grandma's guest room bed.
