I have been asked (read: begged, cajoled and bullied) by family and friends to NOT go to the beach anymore until after the baby is born. I guess I can see their point that I don't want to be 100 miles away and go into labor. I wouldn't want to give birth in the backseat of a Hyundai Accent on I-95. So this weekend was the last time that Maggie & I will go to the beach as "just us girls". Here are a few shots to commemorate our trip.
I can be a little creative when I have to be...... She however, would NOT stop moving and kept cracking the "bodice" of her Mermaid tail ....
After digging herself out of the mermaid tail......
This is so you can see how un-crowded "our" beach is. We go to what the locals call "Whale Beach" (I fit RIGHT in, yeah, that was too easy)..... This is the free beach in Strathmere..right outside of Sea Isle City, NJ. On any given Sunday, that's how crowded it is there, Saturdays are not much worse. The only drawback is that there are no lifegaurds (Maggie only goes in shin-deep anyway), and people can surf-fish right there on the beach or off the rocks in the background.
Do you like my hat???
PEEK A BOO!!
This is what you get when you let a kid run around in the hot sun, splashing in the waves, eating sand for 3 or so hours...... Yes, I took this picture WHILE DRIVING, using the little see-your-child-in -the-backseat-mirror-thingy to line up the shot in the preview pane of the camera. Good thing traffic was light at that time.
