Taking all my children to the beach without another dedicated adult with me.
We had a good time, everyone got soaked, Ike is burned (wouldn't let me put sunscreen on him...he's hurtin' now!). We went with Ike's school to Natural Bridges State park. Really nice beach. Some of the water at high tide got trapped up on the beach creating this Ike's waist high deep pond perfect for the kids to swim and play in. Big bonus about the pond? It was considerably warmer than the ocean. The kids (even Gray, he wanted to go fully in, I needed my suit!) got in to play there rather than in the surf. I think I wanna go back next week with another Mama...and wear my suit...I think Gray would appreciate it.
