beach trip

My parents came over MLK weekend to visit with Evie and Jack, and to help with the traditional post-baby mayhem. It was loads of fun having them here, and we got a lot of useful projects finished. (You know -- the kind of thing that sits around for weeks, being small but ANNOYING and not getting done because you're busy with a new baby.)

Then on the last day of their visit we didn't do a single thing but just go to the beach and enjoy ourselves. It was really fun. We made a fire and threw rocks into the water, and it was gorgeous in a beach-in-January kind of way! We also got to see that there has been a LOT of erosion on the beach since August, when I was last there. For almost the entire beach, the sand was washed out to literally 6 feet lower than it was in the summer. There was a thin strip of the old beach along the side, but that was it. I guess the heavy rains this year really tore it up.

Without further ado, here are the pictures from the beach!
