Acation Day 5

Only two more posts (including this one) and I will be done making you relive our vacation!
I think this was the best day of our whole trip!

Beach Day
Bright and early we drove down to the beach and walked to Ruby's Diner at the end of the pier.

The kids were in heaven with hot chocolate and pancakes for breakfast. The grown-ups had some pretty good food too!

Immediately after breakfast the kids and I went to the beach while DaddyO and Daisy stayed at the condo so the little Miss could get a real nap.

I sat in a little beach chair and just enjoyed watching them play. The weather was perfect! Not too hot. I was enjoying myself so much that I failed to realize that I was getting a very ridiculous sunburn on ONE SIDE of each of my legs. No pictures of this! Sorry!!

Ashton got some sand up his shorts and DID NOT like the feeling and we almost had to leave the beach. I explained that that is what happens when you are at the beach and he should probably just grin and bear it. He did!

We took a quick break for lunch then back out to enjoy the sun and surf.

Lily and Bailey spent most of their time in the ocean. Ashton was more content to play in the sand.

When I applied his sunscreen his shorts were not this low! Due to the plumber's shorts, he got a little bit of a sunburn on his bum! oopsa-daisy!

When we had had all our fun we went to the pool to get cleaned off. Then we decided to go feed the fish before it got dark. The condo complex has a pond filled with the biggest koi fish you have ever seen. There is a gumball machine that dispenses fish food and the kids LOVE to feed the fish.

We like to try to throw the food to the little ones so they can gain some weight and compete with the bigger fish.

For dinner, we went over to the harbor, for a little Joe's Crab Shack. We had such a great time! Our waittress was really good with the kids and talked them in to dancing to the "Cha Cha Slide" and "Disco Fever" with the other restaurant servers. Even Daisy did some dancing.  The kids worked up such an appetite that they ate their dinners with absolutely no assistance required. I. LOVE. THAT!

Tune in tomorrow for our final brief moments of Acation. :(

What a fun day! I am enjoying (slowly) reading about your vacation (and wishing I had one to look forward to). You have such cute kiddos, what a great trip!

Those beach pics are awesome...especially the little bum shot :o) How is it traveling with 4? I'm sure you're use to it. When we did it with Bella, just one kid, oh my goodness! She's a pistol though. I love how all your kids play together. I hope mine do that when they get older :o) I love your Acation :o)
