Memorial Day Beach fun






We had so much fun at the beach. We were very concerned about Eliza. Especially since we couldn't put up the beach umbrella. It was so windy that the umbrella flew away and we had to go chasing it. So we put sunscreen on her even though she is not 6 months old yet. She turned out just fine. The rest of us though are burnt little lobsters. I do not recommend getting clear spray sunscreen. It was windy and you couldn't tell where you got the spray at. So basically we got no coverage what so ever. I forgot to get my legs so I am so burned when I stand up I feel like my legs will explode. I am just glad that Eliza was okay but I feel bad for the rest of the kids. But we had fun and we had fun as a whole family. The wind blew so much that there was a fine layer of sand all over the blanket. Regardless of it all we had a good time. We wish you all could have been there with us. It would have been even more fun with you all.

I love the picture of Eliza under the chair! Yeah... I am not a fan of the beach because I am as fair as they come and always end up burnt. Last time I was at the beach my legs actually turned purple from the burn... I couldn't walk for a day or two! Reid hates that I hate the beach... next time I'll have to send him with you guys!!! LOL :o) Glad you had fun!

Looks like so much fun! - Oh yeah the worse sunburn that I ever got was when I was 2 weeks away from giving birth to YOU! - I mean it was so... painful to walk even from the couch to the bathroom. I was peeling when I gave birth and the nurses all asked me about it.
