Vacation 2010: Day One-The Beach

Monday was the first day of our vacation that we are calling a stay-cation because we are not making a trip this time. We are doing things within a day's drive from home so that we can be home this year. :) I'll let the pictures speak for themselves (and the captions will help :). We spent the day at the beach! :)
Enjoy the pix. :)
Christ be with you!

On our way! Looks like you are looking out from an air plane.

I thought this one was the most hilarious picture! Naomi had her mask on and I told her to smile and so she simply smiled! :) Soooo cute!

Ok...when a car ride is an hour or more you simply must buy the children a bunch of sugar!!!! It makes for a much more interesting time. :)

You can see the effect it has on them! :)

The colors were just beautiful!

Naomi "scuba" diving for anything she could get her hands on!

Sisters and best friends. :)

Me carrying the critters that Naomi caught back to the sand.

Aren't those goggles a-d-o-r-a-b-l-e on her!

We stopped by DG on the way down and Daddy and Momma got all the kids some kites.

Micah trying to catch a fish I think

The kites are up!

I did a man in the sand...he is supposed to be wearing goggles.

This dragon fly was so obliging and let me get all the pictures I wanted of him...he was huge and one of the brightest ones I have seen!

Abby and Naomi

"look y'all! It's beach rats!!!"

Daddy and Momma

Naomi sailing right into the smelly, sticky, green spooge...?

All four of our little swimmers. :)

OK! Let me tell you about the sea slugs!!! We were wading in the water and noticed these things all over the place near the "spooge"/algae. I asked Micah to pick one up (I really didn't want to be the first one to ;) and we discovered that they were sea slugs! There were 100s of them and when Naomi discovered that they were the only things in the ocean slow enough for her to catch she didn't stop catching them! She caught well over three or four dozen and piled them all up in the sand castle molds. It was hilarious to watch her throw them all back. :)

Here's one of them closer up...kinda cute aint it? ;D

Em found this little crab...too bad it was already dead. :(

The bird in front had caught a fish and I was watching him and saw the other one run up behind him...before the one in the back had reached the other one, the one in front gobbled the fish down. :)

Doesn't it look like glass! (and that's not a huge wave. I put my camera really close to the ground and got this picture just before the water rippled up :)

And thus our time at the beach ends! :) SO much fun.

Five girls in front of Five Guys LOL!

We went to 5G for was soo yummy! Thanks Daddy and Momma for taking us!

There were a bunch of beads left over from a parade and daddy lifted Lydia up, but they were too stuck to get them out. :)

Now THAT'S a burger!!!!

We had such a wonderful day and a great start to our "stay-cation". :) More to come! :)
