The Beach

A few weeks ago (or months) we went camping and spent the day at the beach. Rowan had never been to the beach before and he was in love!

Eli looks like he's just chillin in the sand- but he had no fear at all in the water!

We spent ALL day at the beach, Eli was obviously tired, but I was still surprised when I put him in the stroller and he went to sleep!! He's not even strapped in- which should tell you how tired he was, otherwise he would have been climbing back out.

Rowan could have spent all day sitting in the waves, hopefully soon he can go to the ocean!

We ended up meeting up with my cousin and his 2 kids at the beach, they came back to our campsite and cooked out with us and later my aunt and uncle came out for some smores!

Rowan is just about 3 weeks younger than Ethan, this was the best picture I could get. Of course everytime I tried one of them would move!

Mike got Rowan a light to put on his head, he wore it in the tent when we were getting ready for bed and to read- him and Eli both thought it was pretty neat. I found it annoying since he would shine it right in my face every few minutes...

Waking up happy in the tent!

The boys had a lot of fun playing in the gravel of our parking spot, Rowan would make roads and scoop it with who else, but Scoop! Eli would shovel it into the bucket, I couldn't believe how entertained they were with rocks!

I remember the first time I met you guys at the park last year. Rowan looked like a little surfer dude with his blonde curls, hat, and sunglasses. And he totally looks at home in the middle of the waves!

No one's going to believe that he was raised in Central IL. ;)
