Beach in Black and White



Three days, three beaches. Yeah, this week has been rough.

I know you're very sad for me. Try not to cry. There, there.

Just so you can pretend to be there with us, join me in pictures. In black and white, because, somehow, black and white makes everything look...well...BETTER. Dare I say - classy? Oh, alright, that's pushing it just a bit.

Here we go - off to the beach!

G loves the surf. This was his first time out on the mudflats, and I think I might have a future marine biologist on my hands. Or maybe just a kid who really likes to dig and roll in wet sand and stinky seaweed.


So many shells, so little time...



My dude's first sand dollar. At first, it was a cracker. And he tried to eat it. Much hilarity (and manic spitting) ensued.


Our shadows. He is trying to run away from me...this is normal.


Another beach - a lake this time. At first he was a little unsure, but Daddy made it a-okay.


And even though my little man is the spitting image of Daddy, I have to point out...

We have the same Flintstone feet. Poor kid.

These are great shots! I love them, especially the shadow one and the one of him holding the sand dollar. My mom had one of those when I was a kid...I broke it open to see what was inside. They looked like little doves. It was so cool....until Mom saw it. :-)

Love your beach shots. I did beach too. Three beaches in three days sounds like a lovely way to spend summer. Love the shadow of him running away; although we had sand-spitting going on too!
