We enjoyed a weekend at a friend’s beach house in Nags Head, NC for the Fourth of July weekend. It was a great little getaway..even with 9 kids in the house under the age of 6.
And the beach were some of the highlights.
It was the first time the twins were able to play at the beach. And they loved it as much as their big sister does. In fact, they both made a beeline for the water as soon as we put them down…
There was no leisurely lounging at the beach for this Mama, the kids wanted to play. If they weren’t dipping their feet in the cool water, they were found eating sand. Because apparently, sand is tasty.
We also enjoyed wishing our oldest daughter a Happy 6th Birthday. We had her birthday party with friends early, but we couldn’t let the actual day pass without blowing out the candles and making an additional wish for the upcoming year.
What did you do for the Fourth? Did you take a trip or stay close to home? Do you have any traditions for Independence Day?
