It was a beautifully warm and sunshiney day today, so we donned shorts (at least, the girls wore shorts -- I haven't had the heart to traumatize everyone with my pale legs in shorts!) and headed to the beach.
We managed to stay dry this time. In fact, Maya never got anywhere near the water. Zoe only went to the water to fill up her bucket to wet down dry sand to aid in building. Both girls treated the beach like the world's largest sandbox! The girls were thrilled to inaugerate their new buckets and shovels (we've already managed to break one shovel -- no surprise!). As you can see in the picture, Zoe tried for a sand castle this time, but didn't quite make it!
Zoe says: "I got a little sandy but the wind managed to blow off some of the sand. We had so much fun at the beach. Every time we go to the beach my hands get sandy so I go stand in the ocean, and when the waves come, I wash my hands. I helped Maya get the sand off her feet so she could put her shoes back on before we left. Mama could do her own, and so could I. Maybe when Mimi comes to visit us we can go to the beach together."
