We took a mini vacay to the beach last weekend and had the most perfect trip. Noel's aunt and uncle have a gorgeous beach house at Atlantic Beach and were so kind to let us stay there for a few nights. (Thank you!!) The weather was amazing, and the boys proved themselves to be little beach bums...loving the water and never wanting to leave the sand.
Because of the boys' love for the beach, we kept them up way past their bedtimes to play for a little bit longer and to eat lots of ice cream. I thought this would make them sleep in a little bit, but nope (!)...the first morning Charlie was up early singing, "Beach time, Mommy!!", the second morning I woke up to find him mopping the floor (he really is my child), and the 3rd morning I found him in Walker's crib playing cars....all at 7am.
2 things that really helped us on the beach.... A beach cart, we have one pretty much identical to this one, and a pop up disposable trash can that I found at Target in the summer section for $3. I hate having garbage shoved in my bag, so this was a super easy way to keep things clean!
I'm so glad I was able to spend this time with my boys. I do love the beach and can't wait to go back soon!
