First Beach Trip of the Summer- Anna Maria Island

This was our first beach trip of the summer and Eden's first trip EVER! We had to break her in before our week long excursion to Englewood!!! Some of the B.C.M. and Friends of Internationals students at U.S.F. joined us for the Saturday outing. It was a blast- we've just learned that it takes a lot of planning and packing to be prepared for a day at the beach with 3 kids!! What I should have taken a picture of, was the back of our van, stuffed with towels, umbrellas, toys, snacks, and the list goes on! Next time............. if we attempt this again!!!!

----------------------------------------------------------------

One of my favorite pictures of the day. I was sitting there keeping Eden company, when I glanced down at her cute little belly and saw a few specks of sand on it- I couldn't resist- Although, we later had the discussion, that when she's 16, she's going to have to be more careful about showing this much skin!!


This is why I love the beach so much! BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Laying out under the umbrella- look how long she is getting!


Giving me those sweet girly faces!



Poor Eden, her first trip to the beach and her parents forget her cute pink hat! So... she had to borrow Collin's!

Somehow, despite the fact that Eden can't walk- her little feet were completely covered in sand!

Eden feeling the water for the first time...

She was staring it down!!

Collin actually jumped into another pic here, but through the miracle of cropping, I did get at least one pic of him semi looking at the camera!

Mommy and her girl- who by the way, did not like the sun in her face at all! Can't you tell?!

Daddy and his boys- enjoying some quality time together!

Eden chatting with Daddy, surrounded by all of the stuff you have to pack when you have 3 little ones!

Finally, those waves soothed Eden to sleep- she enjoyed hanging out under the umbrella for the majority of the time!

Having fun with some B.C.M./Friends of International students



Collin was too busy to look at the camera!

I LOVE the pic of Rahul and Eden...it makes her look so tiny next to her daddy. So precious! And this post TOTALLY made me miss Anna Maria...even though we live in the tropics, we have to drive much farther now to find a beach like that one:)
