beach bums

on saturday, we finally made it out to the beach. this was the fourth time we've gone since we've lived in nc, and it was malcolm's first trip. he absolutely LOVED it! the weather was perfect, and the water temperature was just right. it really couldn't have been a better day to go. we had an awesome time. i love the beach.

malcolm throwing sand

he found this awesome shell with daddy

i have no idea what these little ocean critters are, but they were pretty interesting. they would burrow into the rocky sand, when the waves crashed on the beach. alanna caught them in the sand sifter toy, and then put them in the bucket. they were fast and kind of hard to catch. you could feel the big ones moving around your feet underwater. kinda creepy.

tired baby hugs...

and baby kisses

we were waterlogged, and i'm positive i was the whitest person on the beach, haha

the sand farther away from the water was sooo soft

heading back to the water

my tootsies loved it there

malcolm was putting each shell in his mouth,
i think he liked the way they felt on his teeth

at the end of the day, he was exhausted. we all were. he actually fell asleep up there, and layed his head on danny's head for a bit. so funny. i can't wait to go back.


  1. Yummy - shells: lol...
    I am jealous, looks like you all had so much fun.

  2. That looks like fun. I am so jealous!

  3. such great pictures! i love the beach in NC... but i'm glad those little creatures weren't there when we were at the beach house a few summers ago! i'd def have been creeped out by those little guys.
