Perfect Beach Day

Yesterday afternoon we went to Hampton Beach. It was the perfect weather, in our opinion. It was mid-seventies and mostly sunny. (We are not heat lovers, so you won't catch us at the beach on a 90* day!) We sat on the beach for an hour and half bringing Devin back and forth to the "yo-shun" sticking our feet in the freezing cold water (59*). Devin was much braver than us and kept collapsing himself so that his whole lower half was getting wet. Brrrrr!! It was a bit windy, so the waves were really coming in!

Devin also buried Daddy's feet and tried to make a sand castle. We had to carry some water in the bucket back to our spot because we weren't close enough to the water to make our sand wet.

Later, we got Devin changed and then walked around. We got Sabo's Subs (yum yum!) and ice cream before heading home.

ETA: Devin's main missions in going to the beach were to "make a sand castle and laugh in the water." I am pretty convinced that he got these ideas from Max and Ruby.

I love the pictures! I am so jealous--I wish I lived near the ocean.

Kids are amazing with how willing they are to play in freezing cold water.

I am so jealous of his goals.
