So after a quick lunch and nap, we spontaneously decided to throw on bathing suits and head south. I forgot beach chairs and toys, we were in that much of a hurry.
Dan met us there after work, which sweetened the deal substantially.
These little butterfly clam things were everywhere in the sand today. I spent hours as a child on Dauphin Island digging these up. We had such a good time looking at all the different colors of their shells today.
The kids loved the big walls of sand today! I think the absence of toys helped!
They spent hours climbing up and sliding down.
I remember doing this as a child, too.
It is the greatest gift of my life to be their mommy,
to hold hands in the waves and race along the sand and dig for shells and wipe the sand out of eyes and to do every bit of life with these two precious ones.
We washed off and headed home at dusk.
Time on the beach is good for the soul.
