We rented a cottage up at Orra Wan for the weekend and I don't think the boys could have been more excited. A beach for a front yard and actual grass for a back yard. YAY! After living in an apartment, I don't think we will take for granted a yard again.
The highlight of the day was building sand "castles" right at the edge of the water and seeing how long they could last against the waves crashing in on them.
All of the boys (including dad) became quite innovative with placing their "castles" and then running before the water could get them.
Crazy action shot! This is high excitement for young boys!
Joshy liked to watch the action from the safety of his beach chair.
All in all it was lots of fun. We explored the beaches, found lots of shells and hung out in the cottage. The only downside was that I have been sick for a week and was fairly miserable with a cough. The only way I could venture out to the beach was to wrap a towel around my head and mouth so as not to breathe in the cool air. Yes, I looked quite the sight but we were the only ones on the beach so why not?. :) Once we came home on Monday I decided I had better go to the ER while Dana was home with the kids; 4 hours later, 3 breathing treatments, chest x-rays and lots of medication I was sent home with bronchitis/early pneumonia and strict instructions to stay in bed (the computer chair counts right?). All in all, not a bad weekend, minus the pneumonia!
