The last couple of weekends we’ve headed to the beach for some afternoon fun. Nick LOVES the ocean and has a great time splashing around in the waves, digging for crabs, and making sand castles. Kate HATES the ocean and starts whimpering if we take her within several yards of the waves, fusses if her feet touch the sand and can’t stand it when her daddy and brother venture out to the water. Poor thing stands at the edge of the blanket, which has to be kept absolutely clean of stray sand, alternately begging for her daddy or the car. No matter how many pictures I took I couldn’t catch her in a smile – her concern is written all over her sweet little face (pictures here).
