Girls Day at the Beach




Yesterday Rachel and I packed up some lunches, a blanket, towels, camera, buckets, ball, frisbee, and two adorable children and made our way down to Pirate's Cove at Corona Del Mar Beach. Those of you who've been there know that this is no easy feat...But we did it! and it was Fun! Nevaeh was a bit leery when it came to the water and even declared earlier that, "I don't like the beach anymore, It's scary." (She was a a little fish last summer...how quickly they forget) It only took a few clever moves of Rachel the Child Whisperer and she was chest deep in the frigid waters of the cove! Charlotte wasn't on the ground for but a few seconds before she darted off the blanket and, as if she were a starving child with a bowl full of rice, ate handfuls of sand like a scavenger! I waited for the "Yuck this is gross, why did I eat this" look to flash across her face but....it never came. Lo, I had to intervene. Char spent the majority of the time in my arms(thus my buffness;). She weighed in at 23lbs 29in. at her appt. today...must have been all the sand! All in all we enjoyed ourselves and the overcast day watching the sailboats drift by, trying to collect shells carried out to quickly by the mild waves...And Rachel and I took turns yawning all the way home.
