Dip Your Toes In The Ocean

After the drive to our house we were all more than ready to get out and stretch. We quickly parked the cars, ran through the house, oohed and ahhed and then headed straight for the beach. Which was conveniently only 50 yards from our front door, via a small set of stairs.

The sound of the waves and the salt air immediately lifted all of our spirits. Then we hit the top step and all the stress of planning, organizing, packing, and driving melted away.
A permasmile for the week was pasted on all of our faces. With that backdrop what else would you do but grin ear to ear?
He looked at the ocean in wonder.
She started the search for shells immediately.
He yelled at the waves with delight.

Camden joined Riley down by the waves. They waited together in anticipation.
As the wave washed over, he squealed, she laughed and the water soaked their clothes, but we didn't mind.
Then they did it again, and again, and again. It was the perfect beginning to a wonderful week by the sea.
