Life's a beach…

July 27, 2012

Yesterday, the family decided we wanted dinner on the water. One of our favorite places is the Old Key Lime House in Lake Worth, Florida. Traffic was so bad on the highway we decided to stick to local roads and ended up on Atlantic Ave. in Delray Beach. I love to go there… it’s great for a nice dinner out and a walk afterwards to look into shop windows and have an ice cream cone – which we did!

We ended up walking all the way down to the beach about a mile. Oh, the breeze was heavenly and with the sun down it was just glorious. The kids had fun running in and out of the water and digging in the sand. They didn’t want to leave, as usual…

My two big kids posing… Little One ran out of the shot at the last minute! The wall behind them has little spouts and water runs all over it. It looks really pretty and the picture doesn’t do it any justice.

Digging in the sand, fun for kids of any age… one of the only times all three of my kids played together without any arguments.

Middle wrote this in the sand, a great sentiment all of us share!!!

And here is my boy, without making a face or turning away… just his pretty baby blues and freckles. Love him.

Taking a break from all the craziness at home was nice, all of us together, relaxing and taking in the atmosphere.

The bathroom is tiled, waiting for the grout… we had another minor emergency tonight when Middle noticed water stains on the living room ceiling.

Let me tell you, I almost had a heart attack. But all is well, a small leak from the toilet valve (it was removed so they could tile the floor around it) that seeped into the ceiling over night.

    Love this! I’m such a beach person myself. I can’t get enough of it.

      Me either. I always say to my husband that I couldn’t live anywhere where there wasn’t a beach close by!

      These are usually the best. I love that we live so close to all this and can enjoy it any time we want to!

    There’s nothing like the beach, is there? We spent today with sand and water, too, and it’s just so lovely. Kids just can’t get enough of sand and water! Well, neither can we grownups, it seems. =)

      There is nothing like the beach, is right. I love knowing it’s so close and that I can go whenever I want!

    I am so jealous! I love the beach too. It’s my favorite place. Looks like you guys had a great time!

    • Susi July 29, 2012 at 9:55 pm

      We did. My kids could go to the beach all of the time. I enjoy going in the evening… after the sun is down and it’s much less crowded.

    I do miss beach days! Looks like you enjoyed.

    • Susi July 30, 2012 at 8:52 pm

      Yes, we did. I love how much the kids enjoy it. Makes me happy.

    Cute photos! I love the beach, too, but rarely have a chance to see it. Thanks for the photos of the water! And your kids are adorable.

    • Susi July 30, 2012 at 8:51 pm

      Thanks so much. I think, they are pretty cute too. And I wouldn’t want to live anywhere where there wasn’t a beach close by.

  • Jessica August 5, 2012 at 5:49 pm

    I love the beach too. It’s a perfect place to hang out forever.

      It is as long as you have a beach umbrella. 🙂
