A day at the beach

Tuesday was beautiful day for a beach trip. Sandy Point State Park, which is on the Chesapeake Bay, is only about 45 minutes from our house. And Chad had a break in his work schedule, so he was able to join us too!

Beach trip

This was Leah's first trip to the beach, and she was not a fan of the sand (she's often not a fan of getting dirty). So, she refused to leave the blanket without being carried. She did, however, want to play a bit with the sand. So, she decided it was ok to reach for the sand with the shovel as long as she did not enter the sand herself.

Leah avoids the sand

Molly, on the other hand, loves the sand. She borrowed this shovel and kept digging with it almost the entire time we were there.

The shoveler

You shovel 16 tons...Ok, maybe not quite that much.

We did not go to the beach alone. Hannah and Emma and their moms came along as well.

Beach friends

Leah wanted nothing to do with the water, but she was willing to be carried somewhat near it to be closer to the other girls.

Somewhat near the water

The beach was pretty empty, the weather was great, and the Bay Bridge made a nice backdrop for the view, just far enough away so we couldn't hear the cars on it.

    Great pictures of a great day at the beach! The pictures of Leah on the blanket look so much like Molly! Wow – they truly are sisters! I’m glad Molly had fun with her friends too. It was great for Chad to join you gals for fun in the sun! Lovya! G’mom
