The girls and I came with my parents on their annual beach camping adventure to Del Mar Beach this year.
After being in the car all day, everyone was ready to hit the water.
And sand, in Veronica’s case.
Even Jacinta wanted to get her feet wet.
Time for fun!
And a walk on the beach.
And more sand.
Can’t forget the sand crabs.
Or the helicopters? That’s what you get when you camp at a military base.
A few more waves before dinner. And that was our first day!
Full disclosure here. Beach camping for me and the girls means sleeping at my aunt’s house. We like the beach…but we also like beds. And showers. Thanks Kathy!
The second day my batteries fell out of the camera in the car and I didn’t realize until we were by the seaside already. That means I missed capturing Jacinta’s many attempts to crawl headfirst into the waves. That girl has no fear! Down she would crawl until a large wave came our way. Then Mommy would lift her to her feet and move up twenty feet or so…and she’d be right back down crawling to the water again. Crazy.
I did recover the batteries eventually and managed to catch a few cute pictures.
Like this one. I don’t know what expression that is, but it cracks me up.
Veronica was already tuckered out by the time I got the camera. She only wanted to snuggle in the towels.
Playing with Omi.
After a tasty dinner – it helps to have professional chefs in your family – it was time to relax by the fire.
And the true measure of success. Another great day!
Getting ready to head out for Day 3 at the beach – stay tuned for more.
