Beach Weekend

So we went to the "beach" with some new, lovely Beaumont friends. Before the trip, whenever I told anyone what we were doing, I made sure to put quotes around beach--my expectations for the Texas Gulf were low. But good news! It was nice! There were very few waves and no tide which made it very safe for the kids. Yes, it was kind of murky and the visibility was like 3 inches... but that's fine. I didn't bring any scuba equipment anyways.

I accidentally only uploaded our goofy picture and not the nice one... and then I decided that we'll just go with the goofy one. We've always been exceptionally blessed to make great friends at our local church--and Beaumont was no exception. We like these guys and have taken advantage of their kindness and generosity quite a few times.

The kids all had so much fun. Braden loved digging in the sand, laying in the water and just getting very messy. And we cut his curls off when we got home. Sadness. But he has a lot of hair and it's hot here.

There are three boys Finley's age and they had a great time generally causing chaos and talking about Star Wars and doing boy stuff. Ok--technically this pal is like 11 months older and yes, probably 11 inches taller. We're working on a growth spurt.

It looks like I only got in the one group picture? Whoops. We all took turns making meals and ate frequently on the outdoor patio. The kids ate, ran around, swung in the hammocks, rode bikes and scooters and played in a blow up water slide. And also went to the beach. Everyone came home happy and tired and sandy.

  1. The amount of sand you brought home is sort of overwhelming.
