You see, we are beach bums! We were sure that our kids would like it just the same. Thankfully we were not disappointed! The kids jaws dropped at their first sighting of the "10 waters" aka the ocean. Pierson actually took a few steps back.
Their actual first sighting was Saturday evening at dusk. I can't believe that I didn't take the camera. I guess we were so excited to show them the sand and water that we rushed out the door as soon as we had all of our luggage in the house. It was getting dark so we wouldn't have gotten great pictures anyway. But I am sure you can imagine 5 kids running around in their undies splashing in the water running from the waves. It was fantastically fun!
Back to the first full day. Kylie and Pierson discussed their excitement as they approached the
10 waters. I think the conversation went something like this.
"Pierswen, do you remember the water from last night?"
"Well, that is where we are going right now. Isn't that fun?"
Deep huh? :)
The girls enthusiasm for the sand won out over the water. I guess their little minds can only take in so much at one time. They had to stop in their tracks and examine the possibilities of entertainment that the sand could provide.
But before long Uncle Ian got their attention directed towards the water and they were off! How cute are they? You can almost hear their squeals of joy!
Pierson and Maylin learned to love every part of the beach. I think they are going to fit in just fine with the rest of us 'beach bums'.
Stay tuned! Lots more pictures to come!
