Beach with Nana!

In July we headed back down to the beach for a few days with my mom!  We did this last year, too and it is such a great time.  The kids love their Nana and getting to spend extra time with her is a treat!  Mommy loves it too because she (Nana) is so helpful, is an amazing cook, and we always watch lots of girlie movies at night once the kids are in bed!

This time the ocean was really rough and filled with seaweed, so we spent most of our time at the pool and on the bay/sound side.
There are tons of hermit crabs on this side and they all love to wade in the shallow water and find them.

This time we also found a new (to us) and exciting thing to do- jumping off the dock.
I grew up on a lake with a boat and this brought back such fun memories of when I was a child.
They loved it!

I love Jacob's arms in all the pictures and the way Abby has her legs tucked under makes her look like she's 12 feet off the ground!
Even Nathan joined in the fun and for those of you who also have a 2 or 3 year old, you know what I mean when I say he insisted on doing it "all by himself!"

back in the condo we had to get cleaned up...

Thanks again, Nana!  We're already looking forward to next year!!
