Introducing the twins to the beach

M's in the surf
Originally uploaded by Allan & Cheryl.

We went out to Crescent beach yesterday afternoon. It was a beautiful, warm day and the tide was WAY out! Farther than we've ever seen it out! So we were able to walk way out to a sandbar - and let the children wade in sun-warmed tidal pools. We even found a LIVE crab!

Allan meant for us to walk long ways before letting the M's play and in the sand and we hadn't even brought swim clothes as we were just planning on a walk along the beach! But that just didn't work out - he had the twins in the wagon and pulled it through the tidal pools to the sandbar - forgetting that there are HOLES in the bottom of the wagon. Both Megan and Maribeth got their robeez and pants soaked!

So we gave in and gave up and let everyone just go ahead and get wet and sandy with their clothes on!

It was so nice and warm that even Maribeth went into the water some! But it wore her out and she fell asleep in the wagon on the way back to the van.
