On Thursday, I took the girls to the beach! Violet (3) is obsessed with the beach – and her favorite book in the whole world at the moment is Ladybug Girl at the Beach! She thinkis she is Lulu in the story – so of course, we had to go and make her dreams come true. 🙂
My very happy beach girl, Lulu…I mean, Violet! Ha!
While Violet pretended to be Lulu, Paprika and Ginger sat by the edge of the sea and had lots of long sister talks:
These three sisters played away the afternoon together. I had Ellie(5 months) in the Ergo, and we went into the ocean up to my waist! Her little toes got wet, and she thought it was the best thing ever!
After awhile, the tide started to come in, and we were getting splashed by huge waves. So fun!
We live just a few minutes from the beach, but we don’t go very often because of the sand! I know that sounds like a funny reason, right?! When we come home, we are all covered in sand and it takes me an hour to get everybody cleaned up (and the house becomes a sand pit). I resolve to not let that stop me anymore.
What’s a little sand in exchange for so much joy?!:
This picture pretty much sums up Violet’s personality. All you need to know about Violet is right here, in one picture. Ha!
The beach is her happy place! It is for all of us, really!
We stayed until sunset, and we were some of the very last people at the beach. I wonder what Paprika and Ginger talked about as the tide washed over their toes. It’s a secret of sisterhood, I guess. I love that they are best friends, and I just love being their mom. I am ever grateful for our family and for days at the beach like this one!
