Favorite Photo Friday - Beach Fun

August 31, 2012

tippy toes on the beach BLOG
We arrived back home on Monday afternoon and reality quickly set in.

Its all about those two fingers BLOG
As I was staring at piles of laundry and back to school shopping lists, I was wishing we were back on the peaceful beaches of The Cape.

The girls loved every minute of their beach vacation and could not wait to step foot in the sand each morning.

fingers in mouth walking in the water BLOG
They enjoyed running and playing in the unusually warm water.....

Sand Castles on the Cape BLOG
but most of all, they spent hours upon hours digging and building sand castles.

Sand and the Red Bucket Reagan BLOG
It was probably one of the most relaxing trips we have ever had and although I had a lot of things I wanted to do and places I wanted to visit while there......

We spent all of our days on the beach where everyone was happy and no one felt an ounce of stress.

Looking over the bucket BLOG
Cape Cod for us is a little peace of heaven on Earth and we can't wait to go back.
In fact, we are thinking about another trip this Fall for a quick weekend getaway before the weather gets too cold.

It has been a hectic week as we are approaching the first day of school for all of the kids. Nick and Reagan start their new schools on Tuesday the 4th and Sarah begins next Monday the 10th. It will be a busy holiday weekend here as we still have a lot of shopping to do. Wishing you and yours a Happy Labor Day weekend!
With any luck, I will finish going through our vacation photos next week.

the long road

There is just something about the beach that takes all of our cares away!! Beautiful! I notice the Cape Cod beaches are so wide. What a lovely place.

Love Reagan's and Sarah's sweet pink swimsuits too...

So beautifully captured Lisa. I yearn for the beach & I can almost feel that breeze when I look at these pics from your trip. Ahhhhhh- thanks for transporting me to another world this morning.

As always lovely photos! Glad you had a fantastic time. Some day you are going to have to share your editing tips on how you get that washed out look. Is it that you are decreasing the exposure????

Love Letters To China said...

Your girls look so adorable in their matching pink ruffles. The beaches in Cape Cod are so different from here. They look amazing. I can totally understand why you didn't want to leave. Hope your adjustment back to reality went smoothly. It's always so hard to get back in the swing of things. Luckily there's a three day weekend ahead.

Hi Lisa, georgeous pictures! I love the one of the sandcastle up close and the girls behind. I'm sorry about the back to reality feeling, ugh! The start of school is stressful. We just started this week and ugh, I miss summer too! Enjoy your long weekend, tara

Wonderful photos, I just love, love, love the 1st one!

Have a lovely weekend, hope you have time for some relaxing and fun in between your shopping rounds!

Shari said...

Beautiful photos as always Lisa. I hope you carve a moment out for yourself this weekend. We are headed to my sister's lake house as soon as Amelia gets out of school...it is the place we love to go to find that peace...I think there is something so naturally calming about being near the water.

I swear I could feel "sand between my toes" and the soft murmur of the ocean when I look at your pictures!! I almost reclined in my chair at work and threw on some sunglasses!!

Your pictures just TAKE ME THERE!!

LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!! My friend!!!
