Friday was filled with more beach fun. Veronica really wanted to use the boogie board…but I vetoed that idea. It’s a little big for her to handle.
She made the best of it anyway.
Some chose more relaxing beach activities.
But not Jacinta.
Catch me if you can, Mom!
While some of the other kids played happily in the (mostly) dry sand…
Jacinta repeated yesterday’s attempt to crawl all the way to Hawaii.
Hawaii? Fuggetaboutit. I’m going for China!
Nothing could stop her. Except getting hit in the face by a wave.
That encouraged her to try the other direction, too.
I’m going this way!
I was fine with that.
Jacinta was pretty tired after her many escape attempts, and finally fell asleep on me. This was a big deal, as she almost never falls asleep anywhere besides her crib. She must have really been exhausted. Trying to crawl the Pacific will do that to you.
There was more sand play.
And water play.
And wave play.
Good times were had all around. Except maybe by the parents who had to clean it all up after.
Then it was time for dinner. This was the kitchen.
More than adequate, I’d say.
While dinner was prepared, some snuck away for a little quiet time by the water.
But there was playing to do as well.
There was no shortage of toys.
I know I’ll get it this time!
And, of course, somebody had to organize the collection of shells and rocks.
Veronica was happy to oblige.
I’m falling a little behind, but there’s still more to come.
