Yesterday the kids and I trekked to Avila to meet some friends--fun! It's a bit of an effort to get four kids ready for a day at the beach, but they had a blast. Digging in the sand, sticking toes in the water, and chasing birds make for a fun time if you're 2 or 3 years old! (As usual Kaitlyn was a great sport, dividing her time between being in the front carrier with Mommy or reclining in the jogging stroller.) After a long day in the sun we packed up, headed home, and my oldest three took a warm bubblebath. It's great to be a kid in the summertime!
I love how even in a huge group of kids, I'll sometimes look up to find my three choosing to play together!
