A day at the beach!

Me (Robin) and Alexis building a mud-drop castle (poopy castle) jsut outside a tidal pool at the beach!

Alexis burying my legs in the wet sand.

Alexis on her way into the Sugar Shack for her after-beach ice cream!What flavor did she choose?

Yay! After many sick days--let's make that weeks, I got up the nerve to get out of the house and go walk on the beach. Tybee Beach is our choice! We all love it there! Turns out that I can get in my wheelchair to go across the ramp over the sand dune and leave my wheelchair nearby to walk a short distance to a really nice swing. After awhile,  I decided that I wanted to walk the 100+ feet trip to a small tidal pool. It was low tide and I wanted to build a mud-drop castle (poopy castle) near the tidal pool. Words jsut can't express how relaxing it was to simply play like a little kid. Before we left for the beach, Alexis and I had decorated each other with delicious-smelling sunscreen. As it turns out, the sky was overcast, and we didn't get much sun. If we had, we would have had a series of polka dots and stripes all over our arms. Would have been cute! At least we had fun doing it. Even Mike seemed to relax a little more--beachside! As a family, we need more of these kinds of simple days!

By the way, Alexis chose Vanilla! :)
