Sunshine Makes me Tired

I took my kids to the beach today.  
We live on the coast.
But we hardly ever go to the beach.
This was our first time in months.

Moira was content to play & dig in the sand for hours.

Gillian was a little unsure of the waves.
She required someone to hold her hands "really tight".

Peyton wanted to be held in the waves at the beginning.

But, after a while, he wanted to go into the waves, 
without even hand holding.  Eek!
And, he wants a boogie board for next time.
Yeah right!

Being in the sun too much makes me tired!
I'm gonna lay down.

We went to the beach today for a total of about 1 hour, and then all of us slept for about 2 1/2-3 hours when we got home! It was so lovely!

I miss the beach so much. Especially on days like yesterday when it was 107. Very sweet pictures!

It's work to get all the kids there, but so worth it! (at least that's what I think) Siena got a wet suit for her bday as well as a boogie board which she likes to ride on dads back. amazing!

I agree. Sunshine has a way of sucking the energy right out of you. Were your kids tired too?

P.S. How are you feeling besides the typical 1st trimester exhaustion?
