Summer: Beach!

We finally got a little beach time this summer. We met some friends from DC in Atlantic City. The kids had lots of fun building sand castles with their friends.

They don’t call it a board-‘walk’ for nothing. After taking a few tentative steps the week before in Manhattan, Julie turned into a bone fide walker in AC. There she goes…

And goes…
Mid-week, we moved from the Tropicana (eh…) to the Revel (wow!). Loved the pool with a view.
The Revel's fabulous pool

Carnival rides on the pier. Mark almost got kicked off a ride for not sitting correctly. Oh Julie, the embarrassing dad moments have only just begun…

Our last morning we went early and had the beach to ourselves.

Julie loved walking by herself – we had to keep her from running into the waves.

“First we scoop the sand, then we put it in the bucket, then we flip it over, that’s how we build a sand castle.” Thanks Max for the instructions (note to self – bring more than one bucket and one shovel next time).

We only had one bucket and one shovel so we had to work on sharing

These kids are so much fun to take to the beach! Hoping we find our way to one more often next summer.
