Well, every day can't be sunshiny! And this day was no exception.
We let the rain pass by doing an art project inside (details on that later), but within a short while, we were plugging away on the grounds.
Can you tell which one of my kids is terribly messy with her painting?!
Just so you know, Gabs painted as much as Ellie, but she has not a drop on her clothes.
We went for a little jaunt down the boardwalk.
Miss Hot Shot just led the way right on out to the beach.
Gabs was following along, and lo and behold, look who joined us...
I couldn't help but take pictures of these little footprints in the sand!
Look how itsy. And how precious!
As I told you, Gabs is a beach bum. She would dig in that sand all day long if I let her.
Todd is an evening breeze kind of beach dude, so he was diggin' it too.
Ellie was probably thinking about how good her hair must look blowing in the breeze!
and I sat back and looked through my lens at my sweet family, I just counted my blessings. The blessing of little girls, a good daddy and husband, and the opportunity to be at the beach with them. I never take for granted how blessed I am to get to do these things.
