Thursday 13 - Beach Photos


I went to the beach with some of my cousins last weekend before coming home. And we got LOTS of photos... Here are 13 of them.

#1 - Me - checking out that awesome sand!

#2 - Me again - in my new rain outfit that I got while shopping with Auntie Audra in Portland. Those boots are so cool!
#3 - Making my own tracks! There was lots of foam on the beach that day - kind of like a big bubble bath!
#4 - There were some cool sand "cliffs" to slide down and climb back up. Here is one of my cousins helping me climb back up.
#5 - And here I am investigating some of that awesome sand with another cousin.
#6 - More sand play. Notice that big seaweed thingie in the middle of the photo that the boy kid in the back just threw...
#7 - Getting lessons in sandcastle making. Actually, it looks like a committee meeting gathered around while I do all the work.
#8 - Yep, I sure do work hard - maneuvering that big shovel...
#9 - Steppin' down to the beach with cousins.
#10 - Cousins experiencing the sunset...
#11 - You didn't think I'd get wet, did you? Fooled you! I even sat right in the water!
#12 - A cousinly pose.
#13 - Saved some sand just for you! Here! Just leave a comment and we'll draw one random winner for all the sand I collected in my pockets and car seat...

I admire the fact that you moved to Africa with a baby. I've always crossed having kids off my list because I travel so much and love my lifestyle, but meeting people who have done both is starting to change my mind.

Cute pictures, but I think I'll pass on the sand if it's all the same to you.

these are beautiful pics. My grandmother lives in Oregon and the beaches in the gulf of Mexico are sugar white. My dad took pics of us as kids on the beach at the gulf when we were toddlers, my grandmother saw the pics not realizing we were at the beach and asked, "why do you have the babies in the snow in their diapers?"

She is definitely an adorable child. Happy Birthday! Were you in Oregon for the beach? It has that certain cold, windy, overcast feel reminiscent of an Oregon beach. :)
