Just Beachy

We have just returned from a really great beach trip with (almost all!) the fam.  We really missed Lyndy, but she wanted to go to camp, and she had fun.  It was WILD having 4 toddlers! The triplets were not huge fans of the sand at first, but they all did great.  By the end of the week Anna and Brooks were beach pros....Irene preferred lounging in her baby pool.  All the babies love Kat, who was such a good older cousin to play and entertain.

Will was quite a sport, letting Kat and Fran (and Nathan) bury him up to his face!
Big girl swimming in the ocean!

Beautiful view of the lagoon where we had fun watching the boats.
Sage and I went down early every morning (coffee in hand), before the babies were awake, to set up "camp" for the day.  It was pretty much our own version of an Irontribe workout.  We had quite a system, and I think so of the other vacationers enjoyed watching us every morning. The ticket to happy babies on the beach = snacks, and lots of them.

Frances absolutely LOVES the beach, and you may remember from previous trips that she eats sand constantly.  That hasn't changed.  The main consequence from eating sand is then pooping it out for a week afterwards, which isn't too enjoyable for anyone.  I don't even try to stop her anymore. She had so much fun crawling around, playing in the sand, playing with her cousins, swimming, and watching the people!

So glad Uncle Richard came!
The girls are on the go!
We never even attempted a "nice" picture of all of them together.
Fun dinner at The Gulf
Yep, that would be the BIG shark we saw on the last day!
