Our little last minute trip to the beach this past week was wonderful!! I have to admit that I was a little nervous to see how the kids would react to the sand and water. Thank goodness they loved it because we will be making so many more trips down there!!! I had a really good friend of mine join us with her two sweet babies and it was wonderful company. I couldn't imagine it going any better. The mornings were pretty windy to be out on the beach, so we did some shopping one morning and took a trip to the zoo the other morning until it warmed up. The sun was out every day but the wind made it just a tad too chilly to venture out there until after lunch.
Lance was able to come down for one full day at the beach and the kids loved the surprise of seeing him. He wasn't sure if he was going to be able to get off of work to come down and I am so glad he could!
I went a little crazy with taking pictures this trip...maybe it's because all four kids were great subjects and the beach was too pretty. I had a hard time narrowing down the 200 shots to put on the blog, so here goes. There are also more pictures on facebook as well!

We decided to have an Easter egg hunt in the condo and here is Jake snaggin one up!
this poor castle didn't last long...it was a fight to see who knocks it down first!
and the girls....
this is one of my favs...its from the first night when we got there. He doesn't even have a swim suit on and jumped right on in!
