After eating the lunch we packed, we cooled off in the pool.
Then, we walked down to the beach. Ryan was timid of the ocean, even though it was very calm. He was more concerned about getting his bucket filled up with water so he could start building sand castles. Cohen thought the water was a little too cold but had plenty of people volunteering to hold him.
We had picked up some sand tools and molds at Target and Ryan had a great time building castles. He collected lots of seashells to decorate it as well. He learned a little about tides as several castles were washed out to sea (see bottom right photo in the collage) but handled it well and just rebuilt on higher ground.
We had a fun beach day and are so grateful for the hospitality of Wade's relatives.
