I'm sure most of you already know that we went to the beach this past weekend, ha! I can't help myself. I can not wait for a blog post, I must post pictures on social media as soon as they happen. But not all of them.
I told my mom the day before we left that the weather forecast called for thunderstorms. Not even like 50% or 70% chance, just thunderstorms. Her answer? "That's not what James Spann said." Well, as usual, he was right! It was a little cloudy on Friday when we got there, and overcast, but no rain at all!
This little one was so happy to see the beach!
He said he was going to go pet these birds...
He played for hours Friday and Saturday, building roads, filling up these trucks and dumping them back out, using all of his tools.
My Aunt Shelley, our friend Michelle, and Tootsie came with us. Fitz was quick to tell them which one he wanted playing with him, and when, and where they should sit. Thank goodness they all thought he was funny!
He plopped down in his chair by me and told me he needed two cans of chips, nachos and a mountain dew please.
He tried out some new foods at the beach, too. He didn't care much for watermelon, but he scarfed up a whole plate of salad at dinner!
The weather was PERFECT on Saturday: sunny with a strong breeze and mild temps. We all loved it.
Look how pretty this is with the sun shining down on the waves...our God is amazing:
The waves were fairly rough, so we stayed only on the edge, but we were fascinated by some of the things that washed up on the beach this time. This stick was probably 18 inches long, and on the end were lots of little shells with what I guess are hermit crabs in them!
It was so strange! I've never seen anything like that at all.
On the way to dinner Saturday, we stopped to try to get a pretty picture, but Fitz was having none of it. This was the best we could do.
Oh how I love to see the wonder and enjoyment through this boy's eyes! It was a great quick beach trip for all of us!
