Beach Time...

One of my favorite places on Earth.  The beach.  We don't get to go often but when we do, it's special.

My oldest son - 5 years old at the time - staring in awe at the ocean.

This was the last time we were at the beach.  Almost a year ago.  In Cambria, California.

My 3 year old son, my 5 year old, my husband and Grandma, holding the 4 month old.

Sand. Ocean. Family.

The baby's first time being on sand.

We live in Colorado, you see.  Lots of beautiful, majestic mountains but very little sand and ocean.

There was lots of digging and making sand trucks and playtime.

I made these three trucks - so proud was I.

And then we saved the best for last - feet in water, letting waves rush over toes.  Cool and nice.

Looking forward to going again this summer...

This is in response to a writing prompt from Mama Kat's Pretty Much World Famous Writer's Workshop which asks you to share photos of your most recent trip to the beach.

  1. The happiness on your children's faces is contagious.

  2. Beautiful pictures. I live in the UK so the beach is only ever a couple of hours drive away but we never go. Your post has inspired me to take the trip... xx

  3. I love the beach, the sounds of it makes everything better :)

  4. I love the beach too - so healing!

  5. I LOVE the beach!! It's so beautiful and relaxing!! Last time we enjoyed it was in January. We never go to the beach when we're home because it's always so gloomy out here, ugh!

    Great pictures!

  6. I actually do live pretty close to a beach or two...but hardly ever go. Must rectify that!

  7. So perfectly captured, the words and the images! I miss th beach sometimes, not that I was there that often in NY, but still ...

  8. Such beautiful pictures! We, too, are close to a beach but don't go often.


Please...speak your mind!
