Watersound Day 7

Our last day in Watersound!
We unanimously decided to spend the majority of the day playing at the beach!

mobigo time!
keeping the boys quiet during the early morning hour

finally out for some surf and sun...
these little guys had so much fun running from the waves!

this was the kids' favorite spot--right in the edge of the ocean
the water was still a little rough from the storm yesterday, but man, we found some GIANT seashells!

mom and dad
mom was NOT going to miss this last day at the beach!
she made it down--swollen leg and all!  :(

not sure what reese was upset about, but i think that's just about the cutest pouty face i've ever seen!!!
(love how she has her chubby little arms crossed!)

once again, nonstop action!
long gone are the days of "relaxing" on the beach!!!  ;)

mandy, justin, michelle, and josh struck up a lively game of horseshoes

little reese was content to shovel and dump sand

meanwhile the boys and i tried to dig a deep hole

they were loving it!

mario and i played the horseshoe winners, michelle and josh
i'm pretty sure they won again!  haha!

justin took over the digging of the giant hole...man these boys love the sand!

pretty view of our ride over the boardwalk!  so sad to be leaving soon!

our home away from home has been wonderful!  hate to say goodbye!

we got all cleaned up and headed back to the beach later in the day for a family photo shoot...
here are some of my favorites...

the wind outdoors was CRAZY, so we decided to get one more family shot back indoors
(and, yes, anthony has a different shirt on--we were bribing the kids to smile with fruit snacks my mom had brought down to the beach.  anthony is the only 5 year old i know who can eat one blue fruit snack and drool it all over his white shirt!!!  haha!)

one last hoorah--
we made smores on the outdoor deck before hitting the hay!

goodbye, watersound!
hope to see you again soon!

thanks, so much, mom and dad, for putting together this wonderful vacation!  somehow you guys worked out all the details and made it all come together...we loved every crazy minute of it!  we're so thankful to be a part of this amazing family!  we love all of you guys!
