Goodbye to the Beach

The girls always have a four day weekend the first weekend of October so for the last couple of years we have made sure to schedule our last beach camping trip for that weekend.  The weather is usually still warm and it's a nice way to end our beach days for the year.

This picture above sums up my feelings about this place.....pure heaven!
Everyone is happy here and we always have such a great time.

Our little Brooklyn is always the first one to bed, she was tired from riding all of those waves.

Kayla kept us very entertained out by the campfire.  I could watch this video a million times, she cracks me up and I love that little giggle!!

Saturday was perfect, the weather and everything else about the day.

Just two sisters hanging out in their bunks together cuddling and reading.

Brooklyn enjoying a little bike riding while waiting for everyone else to get ready

Sundays weather was not great.  It wasn't supposed to be cold but it was and put a damper on the day.

Brooklyn didn't mind though and was still in the water all morning while Kayla and I stayed on shore with long sleeves to keep us warm

The clouds would break now and then but it was still chilly

A little snack and hoping for it to warm up.

Eventually the clouds came in and did not leave plus the winds kicked up and we were getting pelted by sand so we called it a day.  I was very sad that we had to cut our last beach day short because of bad weather.

I didn't want the girls to be bummed so after they took showers I surprised them with some hot cocoa.

Our last night there the girls made a friend they rode bikes with her most of the evening and played games together.

On Monday we woke up to beautiful clear skies and of course warm weather.   We were sad that we had to leave and could not enjoy it 

We went down to the water to say our final goodbyes and the girls and their friend made a  sand mermaid 

It was sad leaving when the weather was so nice.  I guess we'll just have to wait 'til next year to enjoy it all over again!

What a wonderful, family vacation!
I just love the way you four spend so much time together...
And I love the after shower-hot cocoa-with a jack-o-lantern on the table moment most of all!!!
