A Much Better Day!

What a difference a day makes......Sarah is fever free and back to herself!!!

First thing this morning, we headed to the beach!

Well, Sarah's first impression of the beach was interesting........she freaked out the minute her feet hit the sand......she hated it........she went from towel to towel and chair to chair without so much as touching the ground. She would go into the water, but hated the sand....I even had water shoes on her so that she would not feel the sand......didn't matter!

After about an hour at the beach, she passed out in my arms and slept for two hours.....must be something about the ocean air.....because normally I have to beg and plead her to take a nap....especially on vacation!

Finally after all the cousins got to the beach, she left the confines of her blanket and ventured out into the sand with her shovel and pail......thank heaven, because I thought we would be in for a very long week at the beach!!!

After one day, she is now adjusting and loving the water and sand.....Nick and Eddie spent the day on their skim boards and were just exhausted by the time we got back.....Nick actually fell asleep at 5:30 while we were making dinner.

All in all, we had an awesome day! We are ready for round two.....I have been trying to upload a video but seem to be having some difficulty....maybe tomorrow!!!

I did put together a slideshow of some of todays pics!!!

It looks like you had a fabulous day at the beach! Sarah and Kamree would get along great -- Kamree didn't like the sand at first either!

Your rental looks perfect! I love the hammock!

Fun and beauty at the beach!!!! Fabulous! I am SO glad Sarah is feeling better...and that she decided she liked sand! Lia wouldn't go near grass for the first 6 months we had her home....whew...I was feeling your pain on that one...so glad she warmed up to it!

Have fun...can't wait to see the video!

Looks awesome! My cousin's little one didn't like the feel of the sand on his feet either, I'm hoping Madison will like when we go away. Enjoy! I have the same bracelet!

OMG-I'm laughing, because that's what Jarod did the first time we went to the beach with him. He freaked out when his feet touched the sand, but he sat on the lounge chair and happily covered his feet with sand. I'm glad Sarah is back to herself and you're all enjoying Cape Cod.
Bottoms up!

Love all of the pictures! Look at you in your bikini! Wow! You look beautiful!

I'm so glad that Sarah finally decided to like the beach. My so was like that the first time at the beach. He wanted nothing to do with the sand...now he loves it!

Your beach house looks adorable! Have a great time!

Looks like you guys are having a ton of fun! And I am so happy to hear that Miss Sarah is feeling better! Francesca too was a little freaked out over the feel of the sand, but she too got over that really soon...

Next year I/we are coming with you ;)

Oh, looks like SUCH fun! I'm so glad Sarah is better, that must have been so scary... Your rental looks perfect! I'm impressed it only took a day for Sarah to get used to the sand, it took forever for Magnolia to get used to grass. :) Have a wonderful, wonderful time! Lucy
