We had our best beach trip yet this year.  Rett did a week at the Y camp which included an hour of free play in the pool and that hour with typical kids just playing around really pushed him to the next level in his swimming.  He was swimming in the ocean!  The kid who some trips refused to even walk on the wet sand because it made him nervous.  He learned to boogy board.

The kids were pretty happy hanging out on the beach. We filled a big bucket with water and dug a huge hole.

Mom was still in town from helping with the birth of Lach so she went with us.  She spent most of her time reading to the older ones and holding baby Lach. I think she went out to the beach twice.

I think Lach enjoyed his first beach trip pretty well.

Evie has all the motions of swimming down but she has some major anxiety about getting her face in the water.  We got her a kickboard hoping that it would help with muscle memory of keeping her body aligned right in the water. She loved it.  We consider it a step up from her floatie she was addicted to.

We took a trip to Pensacola to visit Peg Leg Pete’s. Yum.

And we set some crab traps.

We learned our lesson after trying to cook them last year so this time they got to go back to the ocean.

2 weeks of sand, sun, popsicles, crab traps, seafood, precious time together.  BEACH16

Rett got into my make up and drew himself some new eyebrows.
