It was a fine science.....maintaining our normal schedule and adding all the "beach stuff" to it. Sun screening, changing in and out of wet bathing suits, packing the beach bag, swim diapers, washing the sand off the babies, etc... what a process! For the 1st time in their lives, my babies got a bath every day (thank you salt and sand). I was so worn out by the end of the day that I went to bed when the babies did every night at 7:30. Even though it was a lot of work, we had a blast. Everything is just better at the beach!!!!
The babies loved the sand and water. Charlie is very into eating sand. Reece prefers playing with shells in her bucket. And Louise is perfectly happy laying on a towel and staying nice and clean. I have a feeling next year's beach trip will be a bit more stressful with three toddlers on the go.
The beach week was also Weezie's 1st full week of helmet wear. That's right the magic hat is here! She is doing awesome adjusting. She even slept though the night her 1st night sleeping in it. I was thankful that her doctors told us we could take it off while she was on the beach.....as if its not hot enough outside. Just as I thought she would, she wears it like a crown!!!
Well, I took a ridiculous amount of pictures......here's a few of "Babies 1st beach trip"
