Playgroup at Galveston Beach

Yesterday, our playgroup met at the beach for a little change of scenery. The weather was gorgeous, and we pretty much had the beach to ourselves! The mosquitoes were a little rough when we first got there, and both of the girls ended up with several welts on their backs, but that didn't stop us from having a great time!
Lila loves the beach, so she was really excited to get down to the sand and started playing right away. Alli took a little long while to get used to the sand, but she eventually dealt with the atmosphere okay. The kids had a great time playing in the ocean and the sand, and the babies enjoyed sitting with each other and eating a little sand together. Lila was a little unsure of the fact that the ocean water moved back and forth, but she got the hang of it again pretty quickly. Alli, however, was traumatized after we put her in the water. Poor thing was so scared and un-happy in the ocean, that she didn't even want to get in her tubby when we got home. I hope that she gets over that soon, because we are a beach-loving family!

Once Lila decided that she wanted to eat everyone else's food and once Alli let me know that she had just had enough, we called it a day. Since the girls were both super sandy, we picked up Chick Fil A, came home, and rinsed off in the baby pool in the backyard. It felt so great to spend the day outside, and it made us all excited for Summer!
