September Beach Trip - Part 1




We headed down to Seagrove for a long weekend at the end of September. If memory serves me correctly, it's the first time that just the four of us have been to the beach together. After going with my entire family a few years ago the weekend after Labor Day, we decided that September was our favorite time for the beach.





The rates are good, the crowds are almost non-existent, and the weather is perfect!









Anna Clare found the prettiest, most perfect little shell...



Steve did a little deep reading...



And I did alot of light reading (My favorite place to read is on the beach so I read this one start to finish while we were there).



MANY sand castles were built.









This next picture cracks me up.


We have a really nice beach tent but realized over half way down on Thursday night that we left it at home! So we bought two cheap, flimsy umbrellas at the Tom Thumb, and Steve chased them down the beach SEVERAL times!



We made plaster molds of the girls' footprints in the sand.



They turned out great! Until they both cracked down the middle! We brought them home anyway. :)

We stayed on the beach until after dark both nights!









Peace out for now! More coming soon.

What can I say?

Found this little note in AC's lunchbox...



Dear Mama My drink has mold on it! Love, Clare Bear




My motherhood expertise is outstanding! :)

The Zipline won...

But never fear...after a couple of days and a new, bolder outfit, she was ready to try again.

And once more for good measure...

Take that, Zipline!

No three-year-olds were injured in the filming of these videos:)

HoneyBear


Meet HoneyBear. HoneyBear is the class bear for 3P at Preschool. Every child gets to bring him home for a weekend and then journal about the weekend's happenings and adventures. Owen was so thrilled to bring HoneyBear home on Thursday. Steve picked her up from school, and I wish I had a picture of the look on her face as she walked in the house with HoneyBear. She was just beaming and full of joy. (Steve is not a fan of HoneyBear. He calls him GermyBear even though I assured him that HoneyBear gets washed frequently...and he even smelled of Lysol:)

Now we don't have the best track record with class animals. Remember Swishy, from Anna Clare's Kindergarten class? We lost Swishy not once but twice.

So far HoneyBear is doing well and accounted for. If we can just make it through Monday with the little fella we will be all clear.
