We just got back from our eleventh year at the Delaware Shore over Memorial Day weekend. This annual trip has cemented itself in my heart as a favorite family tradition. We all need it. It is the like an oasis in the desert, giving our parched and worn bodies a much needed drink of rest and relaxation to get us through those last few weeks of school until Summer.
Every member of my family looks forward to the beach for different reasons. Owlie spends much of his time digging holes, burying himself in the sand, making friends with all the other little kids around him or jumping the waves. As long as a snack or drink is in his hand when he demands it, he’s pretty happy and self sufficient at the beach now. It seems like just yesterday I was spending all my time convincing him to NOT eat the sand.
I love this shot of the Hubby. He’s hot! He loves to be active on the beach. Football, frisbee, sand darts, kite flying or walks down to the dock make him the most happy. Or sitting in a beach chair with a handful of licorice or pistachios. Must have every year.
RedDog has been and always will be our treasure seeker. He brings me various shells and rocks throughout the day to bring home for his collection. I love that he has a treasure in his collection from each year we’ve come to the beach.
And then there’s this girl, who was the bravest of us all and actually got all the way into the freezing cold water. She also spend time spraying SunIn into her hair, chatting with her friend Kate, laying in the sun, taking pictures and throwing football with her dad or frisbee with her brother.
More beach report to come this week!
