beaching with babies

Beach vacations with babies are, as I've been told before, just trips.  Not really vacations.  That said there is nothing like being a walk from the beach and being able to dip my toes in the Atlantic whenever I want.

Because I'm taking way too many pictures I figured I should start posting some now.  Turns out many of you like seeing pictures of our real life- or so I think.

It only took two years for me to wear the Tilley hat I got at our wedding.  It's turning out to be a great beach hat- no hot head here.

Dinners on the patio can't be beat.

Anderson is a fan of the backpack we got from a garage sale last summer. $30 well spent. He's also incredibly protective of his beach chair which means one of us has ended up sitting on a towel!

We've gotten a lot of beach time except for today when thunder rolled in and we were told to head back home.  No rain came, and no big storm.  Admittedly Benny and I were okay with the break from wrestling a very sandy baby.

One of the best parts of the trip has been watching the cousins become little buddies.  So so precious.
