On Saturday we went to Sharky’s beach. Brent and Declan were determined to dig the biggest hole ever. Everyone helped a bit but they worked on it all day. We were on the beach for five hours (with an hour off for lunch at Sharky’s) The kids were fascinated with the birds at Sharky’s who fearlessly wandered around looking for crumbs under tables. Declan went after one of the birds at another table. We got him back quickly.
It was chilly but the kids didn’t seem to mind. Jerry and I were in sweatshirts and jackets but once they got rolling they were fine in their swimsuits. They kept busy with the hole and “baseball practice” and rolling in the sand. When they were little, every single one of them HATED the sand…cried every time they got it on their hands. We used to keep a bucket of water next to them so they could wash off the sand at moment’s notice. Now they roll in it.
Declan got pretty good at connecting with the ball. Calli was even better.
Yesterday we went to another beach (finding parking yesterday proved to be a serious challenge) Declan was back to hole digging but the main activity for the girls was boogie boarding. Declan only went in the water once. I don’t blame him. I think it was still too cold but everyone else was fine. Calli and Lana got pretty good at catching the waves. Again we were there all day. All we do every day is beach and pool.
Until today…Today we’re heading to a Red Sox Game at “Fenway South” but right now all is quiet. Calli is up and helping me write this. Everyone else is still asleep. Calli and I are always the first ones up. Of course, I’m the first one in bed every night so it makes sense for me to be up early. Calli just doesn’t like to sleep much.
