Annual Ocean Trip - Day 2

The second day at the beach was all about digging holes, sitting in holes, being buried in holes. Freckle Foot wanted to be a mermaid. Then Wee One loved crawling in the holes. I would make a hole for Little Loaf and Wee One would crawl over and climb in. Then I would move to make another one but he would crawl out of the one he was in and get in the next one.

The kids found another fort on the beach.

While Auntie was cooking up dinner I had the kids down at my condo. They found large sticks and played horse. Cousin Cutie was a trooper trying to keep up with Freckle Foot while they shared a stick.

I made the kids some Cloud Dough to play with on my deck. They made a huge mess and I was so happy that I could just sweep it off the deck. 

After dinner we were hanging out on the deck and saw thing little raccoon on our neighbors deck having his dinner. He seemed pretty young and very tame. I think he might live under the condo.

Wee One was just hanging out on the deck practicing his standing skills.

He was pretty ticked off that I made him wear his hat.

Freckle Foot made a drawing of Cousin Cutie. I think it's pretty accurate.
Wee One got to play his first game of Zonk with Auntie. 

Annual Ocean Trip Day 1

Grandma Gail was the overseer of the boys who were quite content to hang out with the beach toys.
Freckle Foot was dancing a jig of happiness on the beach this year. In fact, notice how her clothing disappears the longer we are at the beach.
By the end of the day all the kids were head to toe with sand and loved every minute of it.

We have been going to the beach for 3 years now and this was the first time it really felt like summer at the beach. After the kids went to bed I got to sit by myself and watch the sunset.

Wee One's first hair cut and summer cut for Little Loaf

It was finally time to say goodbye to Wee One's baby locks and get a hair cut. I have to say it was a sad day for me since Wee One is our last kid and I will never be able to do this over again. The first hair cut feels like the official end of the baby stage. He was a trooper and endured the strange vibration of the clippers.

Little Loaf got his summer cut. I didn't notice they are making the same face until I uploaded the pictures to the blog.
Now they both look like Daddy.  Although Little Loaf is not crazy about his new hair cut. Freckle Foot keeps telling him how "cute" he looks and he keeps saying he wants his hair back. I have to say it cuts down my time getting the boys ready in the morning. We are going to do this every summer.
