Spring Break 2011

I took my kids camping on the beach. Yes: 1 Dad, 4 kids, 3 nights, 17 quadrillion gallons of salt water and 10 to the 20 grains of sand*. We played on the beach, hiked, visited visitors' centers and looked for clams. Pirates moved in next door, but turned out to be good neighbors. It was a fun trip and we're already planning on going back next year.

Bailey found a hermit crab (below).

Whatcha collecting, Seth?
Broken trees!

*rough estimates only, though I'm pretty sure about the number of kids.

What a beautiful family! (And look at how big they're getting!) I love the girls' braids. A very practical style for a few days without the normal amenities.

Lura said...

Where was Arlynda? And when are you going to take my kids camping on the beach?
Just kidding. Looks like you guys had a lot of fun!

Jamie said...

Evelyn - Thanks! It was Arlynda's idea to do the braids, but I did help. I did quite a few of Abigail's braids.

Lura - Arlynda is going to have to write a post about what she was doing at the time.

That looks like fun. I wanted to see a picture of the pirates.

Jamie said...

Sorry, I didn't get any pictures of the pirates, only their flag. The kids claimed they weren't real pirates, but they had beards and wore earrings, so that settles it in my mind.
