Beachy Keen

Dakota was supposed to have jury duty today, but he was fortunate enough to be #891 in the jury pool and they only needed 1-600 today! We decided to take advantage of the balmy weather and unexpected free day and head to the beach!

Maddie was all smiles as soon as she saw the ocean, but we knew that might come to an abrupt end once we put her feet in the water...

Boy, were we wrong!

Notice the leaning forward?

Maddie was just dying to chase the waves, and would have gladly abandoned Mom and Dad for the water. DSC_0090 DSC_0073

Maddie loved the waves crashing against her, and her only complaint was that she couldn't go in further - and by herself. Every time we went back to the beach chairs, Maddie headed for the water!DSC_0099

Dakota went up to the boardwalk to get fries, and after he'd been gone too long, Maddie decided she should go after him:DSC_0100

Like her Mom and Dad, Maddie loves Thrasher's fries (and who wouldn't?). DSC_0113

After some more playing...DSC_0084

We all headed up to the boardwalk to get cleaned up, eat some lunch, and head home.

What a great first day at the beach!


  1. These are AWESOME pics!! I am at this point entirely jealous that I am land locked...

  2. Awe! Great pictures. What a fun day. Wish we could have been there to enjoy it with you.
