Just another day at the beach

Living in Port Orange means that we are minutes away from the beach... really minutes. So we took advantage of that. It was a lot of fun, and the boys really liked it. Daytona Beach is different from any other beach I've been on.
When the tide is low you can just drive on the beach and park your car. We thought about getting the car and driving it to our spot. We decided against this because with the three boys we would have ended up taking half of the sand with us.
Tim loved having so much room to run around, and only almost got ran over once. We are going to have to keep a closer eye on this one. He is fast.... Part of the reason he gets the bright green bathing suit... I can pick that boy out from 800 yards away.
Here is James running after a wave.... Look at that form.... I think there may be a future runner here.
Tommy is loving the beach, and I'm so happy. His hair is starting to lighten up again.
After packing things up getting ready to go, we thought we had packed up the shovels... but alas they were forgotten. No big deal... the husband showed them how to dig and build with out any tools.
James is showing his brothers. {I love seeing the three of them play so nice together}
Running out into the surf.... We had a really good time, and after a couple hours we had our fill and headed home, still taking a ton of sand with us.
********************
Then on Saturday, the little boys and I went to a beach clean up. It's amazing the things that we found. Besides the garbage we picked up...{please people there are garbage cans for a reason} we found some jelly fish on the beach. We say one that was the side of a basketball. We tried to save it, but it was no use. While we were bent over looking at the jelly fish, Tim got pooped on by a small bird {the joys of the beach} We also saw a little shrimp. I saw it and it was still moving so I bent down to look at it an Tommy stepped on it. So then we were looking at a dead shrimp, or so we thought. All of a sudden it puffed back up and started to squirm again. At which point we got it put back in the ocean to be eaten by something.

Honestly, that's the best part about FLorida beaches - the fact that you can walk out for 1/4 of a mile and not go deeper than your waist. Hooray for coral reefs!

I also love that Tim is still in his speedo. Fitting considering where he is... ;)

You must be loving living there. We visited Daytona a few years ago. Stayed right on the beach and loved every minute of it. Can we come live with you? =)
