A grey day at the beach...

Yesterday we spent the day at the beach. Our friends who had that killer pool party were throwing a killer beach party. These people have the most amazing set-ups for parties... I want. But in the meantime, being their guest is just AWESOME! I didn't get any pictures of the actual party this time because I was too busy chasing a two-year old around on the beach for FIVE hours :P But here are some shots of our adventures on the sand...

This beach house is right on the beach... out the french doors, up and over this little dune...

And there it is.

Big G and Miss C and I went out to see what we could find...
here they are looking at a dead, dismembered crab... 
very fascintating.

A whole mussel shell... she really wanted to touch it...
until she did.
She said, "Yucky."

She found a really big feather!

And then ran for the water!

There we found Q-Man...
in his swimming shorts IN the water!

He loves the beach.
being in the water,

digging in the sand,

finding cool stuff.

That was enough for Miss C.
Time to move on.
Attention span of a two-year old, remember?

Some walking down 'the path' as she called the tire tracks in the sand...

some contemplation while walking in these interesting circles in the sand...

a little burying...

and a little digging.

On the way back to the house,
we saw a group of girls splashing about in the freezingness.

It was Baby X and her friends.
"Come on in!"
This girl is just like her dad and her big sister...
Cold water fanatics!

Done with the beach for now...

Time for a cookie ;-)

In typical Northern California beach fashion, the fog burned off by about 3:30. By then my camera/phone had NO life left so no pictures of sunshine. But fog or sun, it was a wonderful time :)


  1. Can I tell you HOW MUCH I LOVE the beach!!!!! Those grey days make perfect pictures!!

  2. It looks like you guys had a wonderful time! I have to say, I was most entertained by the yucky mussel! It makes me want to go to the beach tomorrow!


  3. I always think the storked dropped me off in the wrong location - I so love the beach! What an awesome family day, the kind you laminate in your brain's memory book forever!

  4. Looks like a beautiful day regardless of sun--love the water. My hubs and I can stare at the waves for hours, what is the deal? that's why we need cable in Pullman!

  5. If I didn't know better I'd think that was Cape Cod...the dune at the top of the beach and the weather beaten chairs...

  6. Terrific photos and such wonderfully captured memories. Looks like a lot of fun, I sure miss the beach.

  7. Looks like so much fun. It is winter here in New Zealand. So, we would be wearing jumpers on the beach as well.


we *heart* comments!
