Seaside Day 5

Today we had a beautiful day in Seaside - the weather was amazing!  We headed out to the beach and had a great time swimming with the kids.  We spent tons of time in the water and it was so clear we could see the fish swimming around us.  Chad even saw a ray! 

The kids loved playing in the sand and collecting shells.  It was the clearest day for this, and it was so fun to see how excited they would get to find clam shells and other little shells. 

The highlight however was the bonfire.  We had a bonfire in Watercolor with the Methvins and our other friends that were staying close by, the Rosenkranzes.  It was so fun to make s'mores, drink wine from milk and orange juice bottles (no glass on the beach!) and then look for crabs on the beach using our flashlights.  It was truly fun and I think Will was in heaven.  He would hold the crabs and show them to everyone so they could see.  Lovey should be so proud!

 They were exhausted.  Will took a huge nap with his Spider boppy and Teddy

Katie woke up only to fall right back asleep on Chad (a rare event in our house!)

Katie loved them!
