I got my toes in the water.....

We went to Fort Desoto beach today with our friends Shaun and Jenn. This was the first time the kids really got to play in the water. When we went to Lido Key over spring break the water was still a little too chilly to swim in. Today, it was perfect! My kids are natural fishes, something they inherited from their father.

Aaron got plenty of sleep before we got to the beach and Jill, well she couldn't be bothered. The beach itself is gorgeous and split into 3 (I think?) separate sections. There's a Gulf side and a Bay side, we went on the Gulf side. I am happy to report there were no tar balls washing ashore. Not only was this a good thing for the pristine beach, but also for our kids since they seemed to have swallowed half of the water.

Beautiful, right? Aaron was really good at warning us when a wave was coming, it went something like this: "Mama, there da wave! Da wave is coming!". Jill spent most of her time sitting in the water practicing her poses for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. I think she'll get the cover one of these days in the very far off future.

The kiddos were pretty much non stop the entire time we were there. I think Shaun summed it up best by saying it's not so relaxing when you have to watch your kids running all over the place. Instead of being able to lay on your blanket with your eyes closed you're busy yelling "Hey don't go over there! Put that down! Where are you going?!".

The whole day was great and the ride home was even better:

Thanks again to Jenn and Shaun for coming with and helping out!
