First Day at the Beach

After a lazy day around the house. we were ready to hit the beach! It was only a block from the house, so we put the crew in the choo-choo and headed out. We were excited to see what the quads thought of the beach.

As we crossed over the dunes and got our first view of the ocean,
Izzie uttered her new favorite phrase, "Oh my goodness!"

(I love the side view of my sister Joanna's pregnant belly!)

It was crazy windy and the waves were really rough that day.
Paige actually lost a water shoe to the ocean.
Mommy was an absolute nervous wreck!!
Rod took Izzie down with him, but she didn't love the water

She decided that she would rather just hang out on the sand.

After a little while in the water, we all ended up hanging out in the sand.

Will, Daddy, Julia and Alex began construction on a sand castle

Julia was a very devoted builder.
We enjoyed our first day at the beach. Then after dinner, Rod and I decided to take the kids swimming in the pool at the house. We did not count on the fact that dusk is feeding time for the enormous freak breed of mosquitoes that live near the house. As soon as we got in the water, we were under attack! Giant mosquitoes were biting so bad, we had to grab the kids and run for it!

One peaceful minute before the attack

We let the kids play in the jacuzzi tub for a while instead.
