Drew worked to build this sand castle using the technique Poppi taught him a couple of years ago when we were at the beach with them. I loved watching him build because every time he built a sand castle he dug a path from the castle down to the water - you can see it in this picture a little in the bottom left corner.
Mikayla loved playing at the edge of the water - she wasn't worried anymore. She would run down to the water and then when it threatened to touch her feet she would run back to dry sand squealing the whole time. Craig said, "I bet people think she's never seen the ocean before". I thought it was cute to watch! Daddy and Mikayla bury Drew in the sand. Drew had actually started this all by himself, then daddy joined in, and finally Mikayla.
After playing in the ocean for awhile we went to play a little in the outdoor pool at our building. Our building also had an indoor pool and jacuzzi (I'll have pictures posted of those later).Our balcony overlooked the pool and we also had a view of the ocean. Our room was on the fourth floor, the column in the middle. Drew had these two girls helping him to get into his boat. Craig said "that's my boy" - LOL.Mikayla sportin' daddy's sunglasses in the pool.Drew finally gets in his boat with daddy's help.Splish Splashin' in the pool!Mikayla tries out the snorkel - too funny!
Tune in tomorrow for part 2 of day three...
