fRiDaY iS BeAcH dAy!!

L has been telling me ...all month....
"Mommy, when it's Friday..we're going to go to the beach..and we're going to build a sand castle..with a moat around it..and Mangie is going to come too!"..
Well, a few Fridays have passed....no beach....not that she even knows when Friday is.....or that Mangie was coming down....They have been learning about the Beach at school...
SO..Mangie came down for her MDO program..and a family wedding this weekend....and brought her bathing suit!
When we woke up this morning..Mangie told L it was Friday..
L said "We're going to the beach!"
her bathing suit was on within seconds.....and we were on our way.....

We're at the beach...finally..
We pulled into one pocket park..but it wasn't "quiet" enough according to L...so we found another one...
fun in the sand and sun


we fed the seagulls...FYI..they like powdered donut holes..bread from kolaches..and blueberry cake donuts
so sweet...

serious concentration and planning went in to building her princess castle


L wanted a log for her bridge....but the shovel had to do..Mangie tried to bring her a piece of driftwood to use...but it was ssttiinnkkky!!

filling the moat with water.....and collecting seashells...she was a girl on a mission

We stayed at the beach for a few hours...it started sprinkling, so we started packing up.....we didn't want to get wet.:) We were about to pack up anyway...4 cars pulled up beside us with their blaring music...L had a quick snack...then we went to Fisherman's Wharf for lunch!
Fun Day!!

NO,that's not sand on her face...
it is chocolate from the ding dong she inhaled....
the girl LOVES anything chocolate....
and she worked up an appetite building all of her castles...

L enjoyed sitting in the back...watching the waves as she ate her apple...
Life is good!
