So now that I have 'borrowed' some beach trips from my sister I can update you on my wonderful trip.

We got to the beach and it was raining and storming and quite honestly, pretty awesome. I love stormy days on the beach. But I was really glad that it was only stormy on the first day. So this is what it looked like from our back porch when we got there:

Nice huh? Everything looks like it's clearing up but it was still pretty dark above our house. It made me feel like Daffy Duck, always having a rain cloud overhead.

So, everyday is stayed kind of cool. The water was way colder than it was last year. The wind was blowing pretty hard. So we didn't hang out on the beach for that long everyday b/c we'd all freeze in just our bathing suits.

One afternoon Fiance and I felt it pretty ridiculous holing ourselves up in the house all day so we decided to get to work on a sand castle. And not just any sand castle, fiance's first sand castle.

Awesome, isn't it? My legs are still sore from digging out that moat...that never filled

Since we came home the morning of the 4th we decided that the night before we should act a little patriotic and fire up some sparklers. Dan and Matt thought it would extra fun to light a whole pack at one time...

Genius. I'm glad they still have hair.

So nothing too thrilling happened at the beach. It was just a much needed vacation. Lots of rest...finally.

Now I guess it's time to really get cracking on the wedding!

You know, I went down later to see if the moat filled up and someone(s) has stomped the bajeezuz out of your castle. I think it was the right spot because it was about the same size area and there were DEEP footprints all over it like people had taken flying leaps onto it. Nerds.
