The beach

My British nanny and I took the girls to the beach last week.  Tyler stayed with Moogie, since I didn't want to have a time limit on our time there.  It was so much fun.  They are definitely at the age where they're trying to be a little bit more adventurous, and I love that I get to be along for the ride!

There was much fun to be had, except I wasn't too fond of taking half of the beach home with me in my swimsuit, thanks to Annika and Abigail!

Annika kept piling the dirt on, Abigail kept trying to wash it off.  That is, until she decided to join Annika and started putting dirt....on my face.  See how everyone comes rushing to my aid?

Oh right, that's because they're too busy taking pictures of it.

I reciprocated and buried Annika....twice.  She's a good sport.  She even let me dunk her in the lake to wash off.

Caedmon brought his Mom, Ashley and his aunt, Jodi with him.  It was right smack dab in the middle of his nap time, but he did pretty well regardless.  Don't you love that smile?  That's how my little guy is going to look next summer, I can't wait!

Jodi's on the left, Ashley's on the right.  Jodi was studying very hard for an exam.  You can tell right?  

I was so proud of Abigail.  At the beginning of the day, she didn't want to go in the water without me, she was a little bit scared.  Near the end of the day, she had commandeered Caedmon's dinosaur and gone off swimming all by herself.  I'm constantly being surprised by these girls.


  1. Looks like a LOT of fun. I'm glad you have someone to go with you (nanny), as well as other friends, too. :) You're also a good sport to be buried alive & be photographed doing it!!! lol

  2. You are a good sport. I'm not sure I'm ready to do that yet.

    1. You've got a couple of more years before Caed will think about up to it and next time get your toes buried.
