this annual excursion never fails to satisfy.
the little kids (and big kids) love the slides.
running around in the splash pads is still much fun.
august took on the big slide this year,
and tatum proved to have no fear of the little one.
we had more rain this year at the beach than we have had in year's past.
which mean there were fewer of the big orange ball sinking away,
but there were still some awesome day ending skies.
lightening in distant clouds all around,
with the sun taking one last peek at us before day's end.
god never ceases to amaze with his paintings in the sky.
and attempting to capture it never does it true justice.
the saying goes, "better late than never."
so pardon my summer beach blogging here in december.
we took our annual trip to our beloved siesta key.
our days on the beach included sand playing,
wave riding, floating, beer drinking (adults only, of course),
corn hole playing, kite flying,
nodding off in the shade,
picnic lunch eating,
soccer ball kicking, el presidente pool raiding,
catching up with friends that live near and far,
kiddie pool playing (and filling),
page turning (or arrow clicking for our kindle faithful),
and much, much more.
