The Beach

I love going to the beach. Growing up in Nebraska, I never went to the beach more than a few times my whole childhood. It is nice to be 2 hours from the beach where we can go a few times each summer. It is a favorite place of mine to be. There is something so calming about the atmosphere and the beauty.

I wanted to go and stay over night for a few days once the season winds down (the prices are much lower), but we traded up for a much better vacation at Christmas when we will be joining family in the mountains instead! So we went down for the day on Friday. It was the wrong weekend to go because of Hurricane Bill. I didnt think much about it affecting us when it is so far away, but after just a few hours they closed the beach due to the strong rip tides. The waves were the huge! I was nervous with the kids, but the lifegaurds made everyone stay close to shore.

All in all it was still a fun day away as a family. I am so thankful for all of the wonderful blessings that we have had this year.

By the way the pictures are from our last trip to the beach, I forgot my camera this time! Oh Man!!
