Recently, we decided to take advantage of the kids’ spring break, and take the 3 hour drive down to my mother-in-law’s home on the beach. Even though it definitely wasn’t warm enough to go for a swim, I thought the weather was absolutely perfect! We headed down to the boardwalk, played tons of games, ate crappy boardwalk food, and sat on the beach with our blankets, making sand castles. My kids are absolutely crazy about the water, and couldn’t resist getting their tiny toesies wet. Honestly, AJ was having way too much fun in the sand – and we ended up having to change him in the car! He had sand EVERYWHERE! Ha! I really love seeing how happy simple things, like the beach, make them.
