We arrived on Friday afternoon giving the kids a chance to play on the beach and splash around in the water. While Jake's favorite activity at the beach turned out to be making huge race tracks with his cars in the sand, Jadyn on the other hand enjoyed getting dirty in attempts to make sand castles, most of which turned out to just be an excuse to dig giant holes. Our cottage was located on a marina with rock jetties separating the water from the rest of the ocean. This turned out to be perfect because the kids could play in the water without the fear of giant out of control waves. Later that evening, we drove up north to one of Joe and I's favorite restaurants from our time in the area, Sonny's Pizza and Pasta where I enjoyed a thin crust white pizza with an alfredo sauce to die for.
Splashing in synchronicity:
This is so precious. I only wish there wasn't another swimmer in the picture. Jadyn was scared to go too far out in the water so Jake took her hand and led her out into the water:
Running back in from the water:
There was probably one picture of the three of us that was a little better than this but I wanted to show everyone what we go through to get the kids to take good pictures. They were at the beach for goodness sakes. Of course they didn't want to stop and pose for pictures!
Watching the waves crash against the rocks:
With the help of Scottie and Daddy, Jadyn completed the hole quickly and promptly got inside:
Jake enjoyed the holes too, although not quite as much as Jadyn did:

But wait, I would be even more remiss not to thank Scottie and Ali for allowing this trip to happen and joining us on our beach adventure. It wouldn't have been the same without you guys!
