...Beach Bums, that is!
We FINALLY got our butts to the beach, and it was fabulous!
After weeks of planning, cancelling, and rescheduling, we packed up our "fun bus" :) and took the little princess to the beach for her, well OUR, first time as a family

I have been avoiding the beach during the week {I would be there EVERY day of my life} because Jason (and I) want to do most of Gwen's "firsts" all together.  I don't want to have to tell him how her first day at the beach, carnival, baseball game, etc., I (we) want him to share in the experience. 

SO I waited.

And waited.

And waited some more... I mean it's AUGUST already, people!
{It wasn't his fault, or anyone else's.  We just have had SO much to do every weekend that there was no time left to fit in the beach}

Well, yesterday was my our breaking point, so we headed off for a day {few hours, we didn't want to push our luck} of sun and fun :)  And guess what?!?

Gwen LOVED it!
{so did her Mommy & Daddy}

She wasn't afraid, played in the sand, kicked and splashed in the water, and was the perfect little beach baby.  It was such a fun time, and everything that we hoped it would be...

And the best part?  Now, Miss Gwen and I can spend any day we want at the beach {yippee}!  Anyone care to join us?!?

Checking out the scenery @ 15th Street, Shipbottom.

Prepping for the "big" waves

Love our little family :)

Jumping waves with Daddy

Sand... it looked like it would taste good, but didn't, lol. 

Loungin with her Ba-ba

"Enough pics, Ma!"

As much fun as we had, it still feels like the weekends are NEVER long enough.
Hope your weekend was wonderful!
