It was blazingly hot at Santa Cruz Beach this weekend and we had the pleasure of spending a sunny sandy day relaxing with friends. The girls were a little dubious about getting into the water (as you can see by their death-grips on TubaDad's shirt) but they thought the sand was A-OK. They even enthusiastically let TubaDad bury them up to their armpits in it, over and over again. It was one of those times when I thought "This is exactly what daddies are for. I would never even think to do something like that with them." View thumbnails, detail, or slideshow (press "i" to turn on captions). Ro is in the fuschia tee and pink bathing suit, Ree is in the striped tee and blue bathing suit. My fave 3 pics are little friends S & G dancing on the beach when they saw each other, the self-timer shot where I didn't quite make it back into the picture, and Ree blissfully submerged in sand: The girls played so hard that they fell into coma-like naps within seconds of getting into the car. So, as usual, TubaDad and I immediately veered into a drive-through and ordered restorative milkshakes. Man I love nap time!
