The Beach

We took the kids to the beach this past Friday morning. I think it was the babies' first time at the beach. Connor was a little spooked out by the noise of the waves (isn't that funny?!?) He kept standing there with his hands over his ears.

As I've said before, I'm not a huge fan of getting dirty. I wish I could be more carefree and go with it. My mom says I've always been that way. The last time we took Connor to the sand, he kinda freaked out - didn't like it touching his feet, didn't want to get dirty and I thought, "Oh no. He is so my son." But this time, he squished his toes in the sand, threw it all over himself (and some on me), and burried his jeans under it. I happily sat next to him and watched him enjoy this new sensation. I want more than anything for him to not have my own aversion to getting dirty (although, I would like him to grow up to having a "messy room aversion").

Aiden loved it too. He kept looking down at it in wonder. My husband, however, was being a little frady-cat of plopping himself down in the sand and therefore didn't put Bella's feet in the sand. It just gives us an excuse to take them all back again soon.

I'm having fun messing around with some cool actions on the photos to make them a little bit creamier in color. What do you think? Are you interested in seeing any before and afters?

Also, thank you for the comment you left on my blog about Jackson's eyes! :-) I like to think he gets his pretty blue eyes from me, and though my eyes are blue, I think his are prettier.
