A couple of months ago my sister in law had this great idea- we (my family, my brother Matt and his wife Ellie, and my brother Mike) would all rent a house near the beach and surprise my parents on their anniversary weekend. My parents have been trying for years to get everyone to rent a house near the beach, so it would be the perfect surprise. Since Rich and I live near my parents we kidnapped them and took them away to their surprise. We told them the weather report and gave them some instructions for what to bring. They had a couple of ideas of where they thought they might be going, but I don’t think they actually knew. They seemed surprised- so either they are good actors and we surprised them
We arrived at the house in the evening and got all settled in and had some dinner. Then we headed out to the beach.
Hailey at the ocean for the first time.

Hunter with Aunt Ellie
Hailey loved it!
I love this expression as a wave was coming in.
Hunter loved it too!
The next morning we got up and got ready and headed back to the beach.
I love these little footprints in the sand:
Hunter and Pa

Rich and Ellie worked pretty hard on this sand castle
The next day I didn’t take very many pictures at the beach, but here are some that I did take:
Mike- “I am smiling.”

Mike tried to take a nap, but woke up and found he had been buried.
Hailey loved being at the ocean!!
