Beach Trip 2010!

For the past several years we have gone to the Outer Banks in NC for our summer beach trip. I absolutely love the beach and going there with my family is one of the things I look forward to the most about summer. We had such a wonderful time on our beach vacation! We stayed at a very nice and new condo right on the beach. It was really easy to get the boys dressed and down to play without having to walk far or get in the car.

Both boys really loved the beach. Ryan had a great time playing in the "huge sandbox" as he referred to it. He seemed to enjoy throwing sand in his hair, running into the water and then rolling around in the sand, building and destroying sand castles and the last day or so he decided to get very adventurous and brave with the water! Owen also loved playing in the sand. Thank goodness the child likes his pacifier because that probably saved us from having him put handfuls of sand into his mouth! He was not a fan of the water though. The first day I stuck his feet in and I think between the waves, the noises and trying to take in all of the excitement of a new environment, he got spooked. He started crying really hard and it broke my heart. He liked walking along the beach and being held as we waded in the water, but he would hold on so tight to you at the same time.

Some of my favorite photos from this year....
with waves like this you can see why Owen was a bit frightened...

I love this one...such an independent and fearless little boy

building a sandcastle requires lots of concentration..

Our little bug or cuddle monkey as we commonly refer to Owen..

And our "little man" or bub, Ryan
