Summer Beach Trip 2012, Part II

And on to the next blog post about our vacation. . . .

Not too long ago I posted about being spontaneous.  It’s hard for me, even when I set out to be spontaneous.  And when we went to the beach that first Wednesday night we were down there, I didn’t really plan on – or want – to be spontaneous.  But sometimes those things have a way of happening on their own. . . .

I expected tears and for Piper to be more than a bit freaked out.  But the result was quite the opposite. . . .

Piper LOVED being in that water!  She also seemed to like the idea of accidentally ending up in the water.  She kept quite obviously falling into the water.  Everyone else was okay with the water, but no one embraced it quite like Piper did.

Penelope liked pretending that the water was coming from her, but I don’t think much more than her toes got wet.

Afterwards, the kids took a “shower” to try to rinse off the sand.  It didn’t work very well.  The sheer amount of sand on them was amazing.  And of course that translated to sand all in our car – still.  I imagine that I’ll still be finding sand in my car the NEXT time we head to the beach!

After that trip, we decided to just grab dinner at Sonic and eat at the condo.  We did that and then crashed, ready for the next day. . . .

Anonymous -- I'm doing my best to find out where the dresses are from! My mom bought them for the girls on Zulily and she can't remember the brand and I can't find a tag in the dresses! If I figure it out, I'll definitely let you know.

Thanks, everyone! :)

Mom found the dresses brand -- Ava loves Olli! I hope that helps. :)
