Beachin' it...again!

I've yet to maintain a decent pedicure this summer, but I can't complain, it's just a side effect of constantly having your toes in the sand!  And boy have our toys been in the sand a lot this year! 

After stalking the Delaware State Park website after our visit in May, Andy stumbled upon a cancellation!  We are learning quickly that campgrounds fill up super fast so cancellations are cause for's the little things. 

So, we packed up the camper for another fun weekend (and week for Andy and Adam) on the Delaware shoreline.  Now, I'm not going to lie.  It was H.O.T. The Dave Mathew's Band lyrics, "and it was so hot outside that you could fry an egg," came to mind...a few times.  It's also been confirmed that there is absolutely no graceful way to run on hot sand to the water, especially when you are faced with an obstacle course of beach chairs, umbrellas, sand castles and holes! I like to think that what I lacked in grace on the beach I more than made up for in my wave jumping abilities. 

Anywho...heat aside, we still managed to find ways to keep cool.  The ocean was a nice and chilly temperature, our camper side pool was always full, and the juice boxes, iced tea and beer kept our insides cool. 

We even got hang in the heat on the beach with Adam's friends, Reid and Ava.  It was great watching the three of them play together in the sand.  Reid just turned 5 and was so patient with the (almost) 3 year olds, agreeing to dig holes, fill buckets with water, and even shared his boogie board.  Reid's "babysitting" also meant we got to spend time catching up with Kathleen and Kristine.  (Note to the Grandparents---relax, we did oversee the boogie boarding.) ;)
