Birch Bay Sandcastle Contest

On Saturday Sean took Taylor and Ruby to a Father-Daughter Tea hosted by our church. It was not actually a tea but banana splits! They enjoyed some time together and listening to speakers and Sean had an opportunity to tell the girls how much they meant to him. He said that he wished that Mikaela was there with them. Aaron, Ian, Libby and I went down to Birch Bay to see the creative creations that people made using only things found on the beach (sand, shells, seaweed, etc.,) I let Aaron take the pictures and we got photos of every sandcastle except the Mermaid.

There were a lot of creative ideas but I am thinking that we need to participate next year for sure.

I liked the camel the best and the boys of course, like the Indy 500 Race track. It was all they could do to not grab a car and race around it. Ian even called the Slug Bug sculpture!

It was great to be outside and enjoy each other. The boys ended up very wet and sandy but it was easily fixed by a warm bath when we got home.

The other day when Ian and I got some time alone together we played many games, read some books and jumped on the trampoline. While jumping Ian was laughing so hard he had tears running down his face. When I asked him what was so funny he could hardly answer because he was laughing so hard. He replied, " You jumping on the trampoline, because every time you stop jumping your legs keep wiggling!" Out of the mouths of babes. I guess it is time to start toning up again!

For more photos and some great ones of my boys go to: and click on the Birch Bay Sandcastle Contest. The photographer took a lot of Aaron and Ian playing on the last castle standing while the tide continued to come in all around them.

Ouch...the legs that keep wiggling after you've stopped moving is always a painful one to hear! But it does beat, "You'd be so pretty if you'd just lose some weight..." Love ya. Anissa
