we are back from our trip and getting into the swing of things. it's nice to be home but i'm sure missing those warm days in the sand. the sand is really all the kids wanted to play in the majority of the time. as soon as we got out of the car and were close enough to touch the sand miss magoo dropped down and started digging. it was pretty cute. we had five really good minutes with her in the water and once she got splashed she decided the water just was not that great and wouldn't go near it the rest of the trip. i could watch my kids play in the ocean all day long, it was just what i need to get ready for winter (as much as i love it) and these cold days we have ahead of us.
