Sandy Point

Being that it was Friday and it was hubby's day off, the guys and I decided to make an impromptu trip to the beach at Sandy Point State Park. It's not quite Ocean City, but for a last minute trip, it was perfect! We headed down right before lunch time in order to avoid the predicted storm system that would be moving in that afternoon, and after stopping at Mickey D's for a quick bite, we got to the beach to find that it was pleasantly not too crowded. We settled on a spot, spread out our blanket and beach chairs, and spent the next few hours swimming and playing in the sand. Jer and Daddy took turns burying each other in between swimming sessions, and Jer collected some cool rocks, shells, and a seagull feather to take home for 'science class'. When the clouds got darker and small raindrops started to fall, we figured we'd better get home before the rainstorm started. So for a totally impromptu outing, the guys and I had an awesome time!

"This looks like a good place to dig."

"The sand feels good on my belly!"

A very happy beach bum!

"Ahhh, this is nice and comfy."


*If you're wondering why these photos look the way they do, I had to do some creative photo editing using PICNIK since they were taken with my cell phone (yea, guess who forgot her camera?!), and the quality of the originals weren't that great.

I love the beach, i picked my son up from camp on friday and we spent two hours at the beach. What a way to play hookie from work, even though I went back when we were done. My purse still has sand it. lol

My son especially enjoyed the french man wearing nothing but a really tight speedo. He still wants to know why he was in his underwear.
