Beach Weekend

We celebrated Labor Day weekend at the same place we did last year: at the beach with friends and family.  We headed to my parents' house in North Carolina on Friday night and spent some time with them.  The kids were so excited to go on a trip for the weekend.  On Saturday afternoon, we headed to South Carolina to visit with some close friends and their kids.

The weekend was full of time spent at the pool, beach and eating some good food.  We went to the beach and used the pool both days we were there.  The kids also got to play at a local playground.  We all rode there on our friend's golf cart, which the kids loved! 

Katie and Michael both enjoyed the beach this time around.  They actually got in the ocean without major prompting.  Both kids let Todd take them out a little bit further than they normally would have.  Katie kept running out of the water up to our stuff and wiping off her hands on the towel.  It was pretty funny.  Katie and her friend Macayla also collected seashells to bring home.  Michael loved jumping over the little waves by the shore and wasn't scared at all.

The only bad thing about the weekend was that we had to leave on Monday because there was school and work on Tuesday.  We are going to do our best to spend more time at the beach next summer.

Katie's hair is SO long! I wish I could get Autumn's to grow that much.
