Guess what we got to do today?
And everyday if we want to?
We went to the beach!
Just for an hour, just to hang out, just to dig in the sand and drink deep of the wave sounds, lapping over the shore.
The girls stayed mainly on our big Snow White blanket, Meggie hopping off every now and then to make octopus and fish sand sculptures out of molds from my mom’s going-to-the-beach kit way back in September. I splayed out for most of the time cross-ways to keep the blanket weighted down against the ferocious wind.
Who knew there was ever a place more windy then Oklahoma?
Not I said the little red hen.
It was a bit sea-weedy, but we got to see a digger at work on the beach and sea gulls in the air and we were all three content.
While Meggie made ice cream sundaes out of perfectly-scooped sand, AV nibbled globs of it as the waves gushed them by.
|YUUUUUUUMMMM! A sandy ice cream cone. :)|
Which confused Meggie's blossoming sense of time and made her start asking: "You put me to bed tonight, Mama? Read stories and go night night now? Where my daddy?" To which I had to answer: "No, baby, it's lunch time after bath today and then naps and THEN we play some more until Daddy gets home from work."
AV chased a squishy ball around with a tea cup, thrilling in the splashes her legs made with each scoot.
