Beach memories

Well since it has been really nice lately and we bought a state beach pass we have decided to take advantage of my time off and go to the beach as much as possible. It's not as often as we would like since we have little Brianna but we are going as much as can be done. So this last week we got two good trips in. On Friday we went to the state beach but ended up not getting too much beach time due to Sean falling asleep early in the car. We went out at noon to set up table by fire pits for the ward party that night then Sean ended falling asleep so we headed home to get him a good nap but of course as soon as I got him home we was wide awake. So we tried again and this time we succeeded. So we started are day out just relaxing by the beach and playing in the sand and water with Sean while we took turns holding Brianna and keeping her covered because I was the smart one that forget her hat and baby Bjorn. On top of all that Greg brought his boards along to get there and find out no surfing was allowed. So the day at the beach ended up being poorly executed but still fun. That night we had our ward beach party where we roasted hot dogs and then had wonderful smores. Also we had a great sand castle contest that Sean kept trying to destroys the Parker boys sand castle. We had a great time and ended staying almost to the end. Surprisingly Brianna did great and slept most of the time. Then the next day on Saturday Greg headed back to work and me and the kids headed to the harbor beach for a birthday party of one of Sean's friends. I have never seen so many fun toys for the kids to play on in the water. Sean was in heaven. Now you see the party was at noon so I thought we would go for two hours then go home and take naps, well that didn't happen we ended up skipping the nap and staying till four or five but as you can see from the pictures Sean was in heaven going from the trampoline in the water, to riding the boggy board or surf board, to getting a ride on the little sail boat and paddle boat. Oh I forget to mention the whole time we were there Sean was running around with girls didn't even bother to really play with the boys. He mainly chased after little Kate that is in our ward, she's the cute little redhead, which means trouble. But for some reason since we went to visit them at their house a few weeks ago they inseparable when they are together. Sean kept sitting with her in her little chair at the ward beach party and chasing her around at the beach. Kate's dad says he's never seen her be so daring and try so many new things since she met Sean, their match made in heaven. Last but not least when Sean was being pulled around on the surf board he was trying to paddle while he laid there it was so cute. Also Brianna got a new bathing suit that I love. We are loving the nice weather and the beach, anyone can come visit and join us.
