Beachin' It ...

Since we've been home, the weather here in the sunshine state has been absolutely beautiful. It's still warm and in the 80's, but with low humidity and a delightful breeze. Florida's Fall is on the way and I'm so looking forward to it! On Saturday night, Jim and I decided to take Miss Abby to the beach since the evenings are way too nice to stay inside. We left the kitchen a mess and headed to Siesta Key to enjoy one of the most beautiful beaches in the world! (Can you tell I love where we live?!) Even though Siesta is a mere 10 minute drive from our house, this was Abby's first trip to the beach. Well.. besides the time she was four months old and my brother-in-law's wife and I decided to attempt a photo shoot. Yeah, let's just say that was a complete failure but we shared many laughs that day! Remember that Melinda? Anyways ...

It was time to kick off our shoes and relax
& have playtime with Abby at the beach.

She loved the sand, the way it felt, and the way it tasted.

She loved the wind, the seagulls, but was unsure of the water.

She may not like the water, but Mommy loves those chubby feet and toes!

Abby is a beach baby!

I didn't have my good camera out because hubs was worried about sand, so pardon the good ol' point and shoot. And too bad this weeks lesson for my photography class is "light." I could have used some of those tips and techniques! Next time :)

Siesta Key is BEAUTIFUL... nothing compares to the sand. I'm just a bit north in Bradenton and we're always saying we don't go to the beach nearly enough! I'm always happy this time of year too because it signals the end to the eternal summer! ;)

Awwww. What a fun evening! It looks like Abby had a great time. I really need to get my kids to the beach one of these days. Rylie has been with my parents, but I haven't been with her yet and Bryce has never been. Siesta Key is gorgeous!
