We love the beach. It's our happy place. Matt and I used to go a lot on the weekends while we were dating. It stands to reason that our kids have to love it as well :) We've gone twice now with all five kids and it's gone quite well. The older two are big enough that they are not hard at the beach, and Everett is small enough that he's easy yet. We hope to go once more in September.
Alayna was saying she's a seaweed monster, lol. I don't know many kids who would willingly put seaweed on their face.
