The Beach

The trip to the beach was planned for over a year. With much anticipation we arrived totally excited. None of us were disappointed, the weather was perfect, the water was warm and we got to spend time with family we hadn't seen in years.

One day the waters were pretty rough. Abigail got a good scrape on her face when she got pounded into the shore by a wave. At one point my Mom asked me if the tide had gone down. What she really meant to ask was if the waves were any milder, I misunderstood and told her they were lower. Actually, they were still pretty wild. That's exciting if you're a 14 year old looking for a wild ride, for my Mom it was a little much. It's a good thing she's tough!

All the sun and wild wave riding were very exhausting. One afternoon the littlest kids passed out for a good nap. Paul volunteered to watch them.
