The Beach

We woke up to a rainy day in Myrtle Beach, which means no beach fun for us today. But we did get a chance to check out the beach and walk along the shore yesterday.

Of course there were many photo opportunities.
This one of the boys is so cute, with Coop's hand on his big brother's shoulder...

The kids all enjoyed watching the waves come into shore. They would dig holes and watch them fill in with water...

And there's always shell hunting in the sand...
{what a tiny shell}

Chloe was a little unsure at first, wanting me to hold her...
{She was probably thinking that's a lot of water all in one place.}

Then she got a little more at ease and she was literally squealing with excitement as she watched the waves crash onto the shore...

Gabe enjoyed running from the waves. I love the look on his face in the photo below.
{Click on the photo to enlarge it and see him up close.}
He was having so much fun!

There's always fun to be had on the beach, but with the rain we're experiencing today, we're thinking about doing some indoor activities this afternoon. Maybe we'll check out the Ripley's Aquarium or do some shopping {or both!}

It looks like sooo much fun! I LOVE the picture of Cooper with his hand on Gabe.. And of course Chloe squealing at the waves.

Would you believe it was 78 degrees today and will be 38 on Friday here? I wouldn't come home if I were you ;)
