He got over it when we got to the beach though. He loved jumping from one pile of sand to another. Over. And over. And over.
We did lots of fun stuff together. Ate together, read together, cheered together, posed together and ran like Baywatch girls together.
Loads of playing in the water. My dad does rent a wave runner for one of the days we are there but the kids love the sand and water the best. The adorable girl up at the top snuggling my niece Abby is her Aunt Kristie. She is my brother-in-law Nate's sister. My kids think she is their aunt too. Let me tell you want to have fun on a vacation with kids involved? Bring a first grade teacher with you. We had so much fun with her.
Digging in the sand, not to be confused with sand castle building because that is a whole different art form. See the big shovel Uncle Nate is holding? He brings that every year so our creations are the best ones on the beach. William had to buy Matthew his own folding shovel so we could keep up.
The Sandcastles. Matthew's favorite part. He and Uncle Nate made a car and a mansion. There were several other creations made by Brittany and her cousins. So much fun!
Thanks Mom and Dad! Wish we didn't have to wait a whole year to go again!
