4th of july weekend

we had such a fun weekend. on friday miles and i went to jen and ray's house to take all the kids to the beach. they loved it. it was colder than i like it. a bit too windy. the kids didn't seem to mind though. they loved playing in the sand. i don't think dahlia liked the water very much. it was chilly.

it was quite a project to haul all the necessary gear to the beach. i am not sure how i would manage this if miles was not with me. too many things to carry. even with the help of my new giant beach bag we still had our arms full.

for the 4th we went to our friends house that live right next to huntington beach. we let the kids play at a playground next to their house during the day. later that night we walked to the beach to see the fireworks. i was so bummed because dahlia was completely scared of the fireworks. she cried almost the whole time. mason loved them and was having a great time. oh well. maybe next year they won't seem so scary.

I remember my parents having to take two trips to the car to carry all the beach gear. It's amazing how much stuff you need when you have children

Great pictures! Glad you had such a great time at the beach. I hope to go back to the Outer Banks in early fall.

i think i read somehting about the fright in one of my devotionals--the gramma sat two scared little ones together in a grocery cart and they comforted each other and ended up enjoying the show! Granny
