Day at the beach...

This morning, we headed to the beach!

It was perfect!  We went to Ocean Isle (about 40 min away) and we were pretty much the only ones on the beach!  Perfect!

Colin had his bucket and a few shovels, and he had a blast!  At first we spent lots of time down at the water.  The tide would knock Colin off balance some, but he didn't seem to mind.  He kept wanting his bucket filled with water.

Then we headed up to our "spot" and played in the sand.  I knew Colin would love that part - and boy he did!  We had fun digging a hole and filling his bucket with the sand.  I love the next picture with his tongue out!  (He does this when he is totally concentrating on something)

After that, Colin enjoyed running to the water, then back up to the sand.  I caught a picture of the run...

 Hilarious!  You can see the smile from ear to ear!
Colin also gave me a nice collection of seashells.

Garet took a 15 minute break and relaxed while Colin and I played, then I took some time to relax.  Though I don't think either of us really "relaxed" we were too busy watching the other with Colin!  He had so much fun, it was really awesome. I had to capture Colin running to Garet all the way down by the water...

When we decided it was time to leave, Garet stripped down Colin and took him in the water to rinse off the sand...

We had soooo much fun!  The weather was perfect, the beach was clear, no traffic, no sunburn, it was a really good day!
