Sandy Giggles

One day (while in Florida) Jon decided that he was going to the beach and taking anyone that wanted to help, and building a sand castle as big as Samuel!

So off 13 of us headed to the beach....

The sand castle crew went straight to work...
moving wet sand to the pile...

trying to shape the pile..

the master mind behind the castle...
Since there were so many people working on the sand castle, and LilyKate and Annelise were not interested I sat down near them and started digging a hole just to entertain myself...

then Julie stopped helping with the sand castle and I had a brilliant idea....

I told her to start digging a hole about 3 feet from mine and we could tunnel them towards each other...

Sometime, some how Jon ended up working on my tunnel...
Once we made it to one another.. I stuck the camera down in the hole to get a cool pic...




So now we had an even better idea... let one of the kids crawl through... of course the first to offer was Isabelle...
Down she goes...

her hand waving at the camera

can she make it??....
of course she did!!!! she just needed a little help getting up

she was sooo excited, and all of us cheered!!!
Once Isabelle did it, the other kids lined up to give it a try...
Eva got as far as laying on her belly, with her head in the hole and screamed for daddy to pull her out!
Michael wormed his way through no problem



Grace heads in... (pun intended lol)

SUCCESS!!

LILYKATE?? WHAT?

What a trooper!!

Annelise- aka Diego wanted to get in on this adventure

not sure what Diego says, as Dora would say We did it, we did it, we did it yeah!
While we were all watching, cheering and tunneling, Hannah was working hard on that pile of sand.. creating a fantastic sand castle!!

check out that detail... seaweed, seashells, even a blue fish... I love it!

A great few hours at the beach, fun adventure, tons of pictures, memories that will last a lifetime, millions of giggles and more then enough sand in our suits and hair and make our own sandbox!!

What's your favorite thing to do on the beach?
