It was a long day. The drive alone was more than three hours each way. The day seemed longer by the chilly weather (not sure if it hit above 70 degrees all day) and the wind. Oh, man, the wind!!
So, we spent the day eating.
And watching the kids bury each other in the sand.
And build castles and forts and dig trenches and holes in the sand.
And then our mother took our picture together. (From left: Emily, Kate, Craig, Lisa, and me in the hat.)
It was so windy that I never took off my clothes that were over my bathing suit. And that towel became my beach wrap. The kids were much braver than we were. They got in the water. (The boardwalk was just as windy and cold.) Still, it was a great day.
Today is our 14th wedding anniversary. * * * * * I am starting to potty-train Sawyer today.
