what is that out there?

I just really loved this one of the kids. It was right when we got to the beach, a beach we have never been to before, and they had just hit the first wave of the day. I love how happy they are to be there even though we have been to the beach a hundred times before.

Mostly I just like this one because I never have pictures with the kids and I. Usually I am on the other end of the lens. Unfortunately I am also in a bathing suit!


Can you all see what the kids are looking at out in the water. There we are sitting on the beach building a sand castle when I look up and think, "Is there someone drowning out there?" No, no one was drowning. It was a monk seal come to take a look at what was all the excitement on the beach. The kids wanted to go out and pet it. They had to settle with just looking at it. It was so funny. The seal just swam up and down the beach. It almost ran into a few people who weren't paying attention. Crazy!

Ok Conner is Jealous. He keeps saying, they go in water, why not me in water? He loves water well at least the bath. Hopefully this summer we will get to the pool!! I love the picture of you and the kids and you can't even see you really so what are you complaining about.
