Another Beautiful Day

We are a cold beach family...we like putting on a sweatshirt and enjoying the cool breeze off the ocean while we explore the shore for treasures. None of that hot, swimsuit wearing beach for us.
Mitch and Avery had so much fun throwing a frisbee and running in the sand together. i love how thrilled they look with themselves, there must have been a really good throw.


Could she be more adorable? We caught her just standing at the edge of the beach watching the surf and looking out to sea. I love the hands behind the back.
I wanted to have things to do with us in case the weather was bad, but i also brought along watercolors. I thought that they would be fun to do on the beach with salt water. So i took them out and we sat together painting the beach. The wind presented a little challenge but we made do and have some paintings to show for our work....mine was amateur at best.

I love the look on her face as she was trying to get something right in her painting.

Hi Leslie! I love your beach pictures. We have a cold beach here in Oregon too. You took such beautiful pictures of your children! The one of your little girl with her hands behind her back is so precious. xoxo

watercolors with saltwater sounds very interesting, and unique. What a great way to expand in all the areas of our mind.

I love the beach when its windy and chily too.
