Kara usually just wants to play in the sand, and wont go in the water much. I was surprised that this time she actually got in the waves a few times.
Ben came after he got off work and met us there. I brought him a change of clothes, but forgot sandals, so he had to go barefoot. I don't think it was too much of a problem for him though. Here he is "helping" the girls build a sand castle.

Kiersten would spend all her time in the water if we'd let her. We had to keep bringing her in. She doesn't get scared of the waves at all.
Kara insisted on bringing this chair. I wished I had brought mine too. I had to sit on the uncomfortable ground the whole time. I got tons of stares. I'm conviced people thought I was a beached whale. I actually thought my belly was looking smaller that day, but I saw a few pics that my mom took of me, and I thought, "no wonder people were staring". I'm pretty enormous.
Kiersten loves dressing up. This was her outfit today. The tutu had a piece ripping off, so I cut it, and gave her a little headband. She loves being a "ballerina princess". or any type of princess, for that matter. Kara loves helping her dress up. I think she prefers dressing Kiersten up, to playing dress up herself.
