Inaugural Beach Day 2014

I am a little late getting my Sunday photo/weekly recap up today because I was taking a VERY LONG Sunday nap. Because I am exhausted! We played hard this week, to be sure. But the best part was finally going to the beach this summer.

It was an absolutely gorgeous day (today is, too) and, after Bria's string quartet rehearsal, we piled in the car and headed to our favorite beach to meet some of our favorite friends. We didn't have a ton of time to spend at the beach that day, because Bria's quartet was playing at a wedding later that evening (her first paying gig as a musician and she made 50 bucks and was THRILLED--easiest money ever, she said).

But we definitely milked those few hours for all they were worth...

The girls built sandcastles.

And caught the biggest tadpole I've ever seen in my life.

Bria sunbathed, as teens are wont to do. And also made sand art on her arms.

Chloe ate potato chips and actually smiled for a couple photos.

Sophia immediately tried out the (very cold) water, learned to walk in flippers, and played with squirt guns.

Sometimes the teen's sunbathing was interrupted by her sisters' activities.

The girls did a lot of running and jumping into the water.

Sophia gathered pretty rocks for her (gigantic) collection.

The dads (and sometimes the kids) played Frisbee and tossed around the football.

And the moms enjoyed chatting, watching, and enjoying the sun.

It was a glorious day, and I hope that there are many, many more to come this summer.

Happy Sunday!
