Last hurrah of Summer

On a whim a couple of friends and I decided to take a drive out to the Beach, Rehoboth beach in Delaware. The dads had plans so the moms took 10, count them 10 kids to the beach. We started real early so oh course StarBucks came in handy and lucky for us it is 100 feet from my back door.

The waves were really kicking due to the Hurricane churning just a few hundred miles off shore. There was a rough undertow which made me a paranoid wreck. One of the 3 of us was always at the waterline with eyes on the rug rats.

Those sweet babies had a great time.

They were building castles.

They covered each other in sand.

They attempted to boogie board.

They relaxed in the sun.

I was so glad we went and what better way than to go with friends. The only thing was the drive home, we drove almost the entire way in pouring down rain. Yeah, a few prayers allowed the rain to lighten up so we could pass the Bay bridge and within seconds of crossing we were back to hydroplaning rain. All in all it was an awesome day. The kids were wore out and I was super happy to have had a Mother/child day. Thanks Ladies for the idea and wonderful company.
