Our Trip to the Beach
We just returned from the beach. It was wonderful!
The purpose wasn't just to have a getaway, although we badly needed one. My sister lives near the beach, so we went to visit them as well. Ann Catherine and Lily had a great time playing with their cousins, Ally and Will.
For some bizarre reason, Ann Catherine decided she HATED the sand on this trip. I realize most children do this, but it's baffling to me because she loved it last year. This year, she never wanted her feet to touch. As long as I put her in a chair or sat her on the towel, she would play. But, she had no desire to feel the sand between her toes.
Lily, on the other hand, loved the sand. She just played and played. That's Lily. She's pretty much content in any situation.
The best part was just being with our family. In fact, that's Ann Catherine above with her Poppy, a wonderful, gentle man who pretty much lets the girls do whatever they want (isn't that what grandparents are for?).
It was a much-needed breather for our family. A little getaway to help us remember what's most important in life - being together.
