Beach Day

Saturday, August 27, 2011

The first thing that Archie said when he saw the ocean was "pool!!!" Yes, buddy, the biggest pool in the world. Here he is showing me how he is going to swim.

Patiently waiting for Daddy to get the boat ready

Finally on the water-- going fishing!

Driving way out into the ocean

Made it to our fishing spot!

Both kids were over fishing pretty quickly. Joey did catch a couple fish, but there was so much commotion when it happened that I failed to get a picture. It was quite exciting though!

Playing a really fun belly bumping game while waiting to head to the beach

And finally. Archie gets to experience the beach, and touch the ocean for the first time in his life. What a moment!

Pure joy.

They had the absolute greatest time.

And it was a great day for really cute little butt cracks

All cleaned up and ready to head home! Archie has been learning the words "happy" and "sad". We talk about things that are happy (hugs, family, puppies) and things that are sad (pushing, hitting). Here they are being HAPPY.

And here they are being sad....

And again. Here is Archie being sad. Pretending to cry.....


And Ace hiding from her paparazzi mom

The kids are absolutely wiped out. And Joey and I are probably even more exhausted. Off to bed for all of us!

Lots of Love!

So Great! Love Archie's expression when he finally feels the ocean wash over him! I also love the Coppertone hineys :)

I love it that you describe him and the things he does as "joy" thats what we call Murphy! It started so long ago, and now we call them both joy buckets, but Murphy will answer to precious! He adores the beach just like Archie and Ace!
