Ahhhh, this is the life

We have had unseasonably cool weather this summer.  I'm not complaining.  I love it! I do know that the heat is coming but we have been so grateful for the mild temperatures thus far.  A couple weeks ago we had this crazy idea to take the girls beach camping in order to fully appreciate the weather.  We called a campground that normally is booked up seven months in advance and they happened to have a cancellation THAT SAME MORNING (God is so good, right?!).  Apparently the cooler temps had caused a few folks to pack up early and head home (go figure).

So we got a slot one row back from the sand.

Seriously.  Gorgeous.

Hard to see the water in this picture because it just blends in with the sky, but believe me, it was beautiful.  And close.  (That's the back of our van).

The girls LOVED being so close to the sand.  

What could be better than spending time as a family in a tent......

....playing giant horseshoes....

....eating s'mores around a campfire....

...(a campfire that our awesome camping neighbor helped us start)

(the same awesome neighbor that gave all 3 of my girls LED flashlights to use in the tent)
....sitting and watching the sailboats come in for the night...from our campsite...

...and donuts for breakfast (can you see Baileys eye in the center of the donut?)...
Seriously...what could be better?

Not much.  
Except maybe an RV, a dvd player with a charged battery, and leaving the dogs at home.

Live and learn. 

We still had tons of fun, came home with tons of great memories,  and about 15 loads of laundry (and enough sand to fill a sandbox).
