Great pics! How did you make the sand/seashell sculptures? We’re heading to the beach next weekend and I’ve been wanting to something like that with my little one!

Yes, it was a great trip. The game is Go Fish by Eeboo (http://www.eeboo.com/startpage.php then go to illustrator cards), a gift from Maia’s aunt and uncle. She LOVES it! And especially playing it with them as she is in that photo. I’ll try for more photos/stories sometime in the next couple of days. Yesterday it was all I could do just to download the photos and start unpacking!!

Yes, thank you. The rest was great as was the being away from home and housework.

Maia loved that boogie board! Someone had left it behind at the house we were staying at. We’ll definitely have to pick one up before we go to the beach again.

The sand/seashell sculptures were made with plaster of paris poured into holes we made on the beach. Very easy! The kids had placed shells in the holes first. I’ll try to post more pics and description tomorrow.

Looks like we were doing some of the same things last week :) Beach time is good. Very good. And we had fun making similar plaster/sand creations. Glad you had a nice vacation.

Thanks. The fish printing was lots of fun, too.

Cool! Henry’s father is into kites and got that for father’s day. We had lots of fun with it!

Yes! I just looked at your blog. I love the sand/shell faces. And the fish printing!

Can you please tell me the brand/name of the sunshade you picture here. I am just on the hunt for one and can’t make up my mind. Yours looks like it may be a Kelty??? I’d love to know what it is and how well it works at the beach. Thanks!!!! Cute belly, by the way!

Mary – Yes it’s a Kelty and belongs to our friends. Bobbi says they got it years ago at REI. It worked great! And we even set it up in shallow water a couple of times.
