The day started with plenty of time in the water and in the sand. We definitely are, by definition "Beach Bums"! Many people I know go to the beach and spend at least one day doing other things and never go to the shore. Not our family! If we don't spend at least 5 hours a day on the beach we have wasted the day!
Daniel, the newest member of the Beach Bums, fit right into the family.
As much as this family likes the sand and surf I would be remiss not to mention the fact that we also greatly appreciate the food available to consume at the beach.
These cutie pies are kicking their feet not because they know they are the cutest girls in town but because they know they are about to consume crab legs!
Every year we head out to get delectable crab legs! It is something we all look forward to!
Can't you feel Caleb's enthusiasm? Poor little guy. This is what he looked like until the moment the food came out.
This little guy is quickly becoming the clown of the family! He does things just to make other people laugh. I think he and Pierson will be quite a pair when they get a little older!
I love it though! Not the second glances part, but the fact that I can't classify my family as primarily one race or another. It is something that I have to keep on the forefront of my mind. We are not a Caucasian family. We are a mixed race family who come from different cultures. I don't want my kids to ever feel like I believe the culture I have been raised in is superior to the culture they were born into. They come from traditions far older than any American traditions. While many of their traditions are centered around false gods and religion there are plenty which aren't. I hope to be able to keep part of those alive in my kids so they never forget where they came from.
