Beach Sunday

We planned with my brother and his family to go to New Smyrna Beach on Sunday.  We knew that there was a chance of rain but were fine with that.  Well, we ended up leaving later than we had planned.  We were on the beach for about 30 minutes to 1 hour before we saw it storming in the distance.  The lifeguards made everyone get out of the water and then about 10 minutes later made everyone leave the beach.  So we sat in our cars and ate our lunches.  We were concerned about the storms, but only about 30 minutes after we left the beach we were able to go back on the beach.

It was still overcast and you could see lightning way out in the ocean.  But the beach was not crowded anymore:)  I enjoyed that it was sort of cloudy and not so hot because I don't like salt water so I don't get in the water very much.   The kids were a little cool when they would get out of the water though.   But they all (all 8 of them) loved the beach!

I was trying to take a picture of my girls and Abbie decided to show me her booty instead, so Molly decided to do the same. They can be so silly:)

Abbie, Molly, David, Naomi and Graham playing in the sand.

They were building up walls to keep some water in it. They said they were making their own town.

Molly helping fill the bucket, while David worked on the walls.

Abbie was then dancing in the water of their "town."

After a fun drizzly day at the beach, we ate at a local Mexican restaurant and headed home to bathe the kids and get them to bed.  (And have the men go vacuum out all the sand in our cars!)
