Gramaw's Beach Babies

Beachtime-11

Nothing gives me more pleasure than to watch my grandbabies enjoying the beach as much as I do.  Little Lucy (14 months) was our youngest beach baby with us on Emerald Isle this year...

While these four...Karter (9), Kelsey (4), Kaden (7), and Kassie (4)...are old beach pros.

Lucy and Abram (3) were lucky enough to have two beach vacations this summer.

 

Beachtime-124

Krew (3) was too young to remember his first trip to the beach, and he quickly fell in love with it too.

And his sister Juni (who'll be 2 in just 2 weeks) was in sandbox paradise!

Most of the time, that is...unless her cousin tried to play with her stash of toys.

Girls, girls....

These two...how are they all of a sudden looking so old?  Gramaw's beach babies are growing up!

 

Beachtime-76

Lots of fun cousin-bonding time, spending hours together on the shore.

 

Beachtime-83

My little mermaid (Kelsey)...

 

Beachtime-246

Times two!  Kassie...

Beachtime-94

Oh, my sweet busy little Abram!

 

Beachtime-96

Krew tried to take a little rest...

 

Beachtime-97

...but Abram wasn't having it!

Juni-bug toted a lot of buckets of sand...building those biceps, Girlfriend!

 

Beachtime-145

Kaden is getting so tall these days...

Karter too...

Kaden and Karter were in the water 90% of the time we were down on the beach.  They couldn't get enough of the ocean!

 

Beachtime-92

Sweet Kass got braver as the week went on, venturing into the water more and more.

 

Beachtime-20

There may or may not have been a few sandy diaper changes...

 

Beachtime-102

I'm amazed Abram laid still long enough to be buried in the sand like that.

 

Beachtime-107

But not for long!

 

Beachtime-142

Classic Abram look!

 

Beachtime-273

Kelsey helped Gramaw made a sand sea turtle.  You DO know that's what it is, don't you?!

 

Beachtime-269

Daily military jets from Cherry Point base flew over the beach and the kids, especially Krew, were fascinated. So fascinated that playing "jets" was a fun game!

 

Beachtime-270

My little 3-year-old jets!

 

Beachtime-271

And of course Juni was not going to be left out of the flying fun!

 

Beachtime-204

Lucy took a special shine to her Aunt Emmy...

 

Beachtime-252

Kassie found a zebra fish that washed up on the shore...

 

Beachtime-141

Abram collected "potato chip shells."  My grandbabies are all such creative thinkers!

 

Beachtime-223

They entertained me all week long...

 

Beachtime-219
