The Forbes family made the annual trek to Sunset Beach, North Carolina last week. It was a really low-key week with the weather being rainy and kind of cold the first half of the week, but the second half of the week was sunny and beautiful and we all got our beach fill! Stevo enjoyed having a full table for board games, and I took advantage of plenty of playmates for Anna so I could relax and put my feet up. I also took about a million pictures but you guys are used to that, right?
Anna had a lot of fun pointing out all the birds this trip - and there sure are a lot of birds at the beach!! Apparently, though, kids morph into seagull activists somewhere around the age of 4 or 5, so keep that in mind if you decide to throw flip-flops at the gulls. Stevo got quite the little lecture, hahahaha.
Our sleepyhead conked out on a walk with Daddy!
Picking out her dinner at Sharkey's
Crabbing with SuSu - this was right before Bean tried to climb into the cooler with all the crabs!
Dance Party with Daddy - do you like all her stickers?
Running in the tide pools
They were playing in the mud and Bean leaned over for a kiss - I love catching her kisses on camera!
Buried in the sand
Alex and Kristy building a sand castle
Let's go fly a kite, up to the highest heights!
Steve and Alex built this crazy sand castle, and then the game was to not let the incoming tide get the sunglasses. I think the ocean ended up winning but they apparently put up a good fight.
Poppy and SuSu
I don't really know what's going on here.
Enjoying the sea air and eating the last beach breakfast on the porch
See you next year, Sunset!!
