Gulf Coast Birth Control

The comment is sometimes made to us that watching us is "good birth control" for the teenagers that might be around.  Pretty sure that any teenagers around us on our most recent beach trip will not engage in activities that could lead to pregnancy for years to come.

We had a wonderful beach trip, but it certainly is wild with three toddlers (actually 4, with Frances).  Despite the fact that the girls have now been to the beach 4 times, they still HATE sand.  Clearly they did not get that from me.   In order to accommodate for the sand issue, we used a variety of tools - shoes, baby pools, blankets, etc.  There were a number of total freak-outs and meltdowns.  By the end of the week they actually were doing much long as they had on shoes (notice those bright blue shoes are in ALL pics).

Group pictures now take the form of everyone just going in the same direction.

Best investment ever.  The wagon.

The chairs were position one when we arrived on the beach each day.

Looks about normal.

Rare moment of Irene interacting with sand.



Anna.  She was great as long as her hands didn't touch.


I love this one.
