We wanted to have one last special, family outing before Creek gets here and, since we don't know exactly when that will be, we decided yesterday was a good day. Originally, we were going to go to the zoo - but apparently the zoo is closed on Monday's, so we decided to go to the beach instead. Now, this is not a Gulf Shores or Panama City kind of beach...it is a Waveland, MS kind of beach. No, you've never heard of it. It may not have waves, but it does have sand, ocean water, hermit crabs, and sea gulls.
The hermit crabs were the highlight. Jacob helped them dig this hole and they put them down in there and waited for them to wake up...only every time they started to move one of the girls would grab it and back in the shell they would go!
Have you ever built a sand fish instead of a sand castle? My girls have.
