beach bunnies!

Beachboys

we spent a long easter weekend at the beach in the amazing condo that tripper’s parents rented for us back at christmas—what the boys now lovingly refer to as papa ger’ and mamalin’s house! yay! the boys loved the beach this time around. sand + water = fun. and for the most part, aside from not wanting to go to bed, they were pretty good!

here’s a look back in {a lot of} pictures …

we arrived thursday after a long car ride. the boys immediately wanted to head to the beach with daddy and papa ger’.

we hit the beach again on friday, but just for a bit in the morning before the sun got too strong. alex spent much of the weekend up there on papa ger’s shoulders.

the rest of the day we rode bikes and napped and got cleaned up for dinner out on the town. i refuse to post any of the pictures we took at dinner because they are frightening. literally scary. many of us have glowing eyes, but alex, well, he just looks creepy in every single one of them. ok, twist my arm. here’s the least scary of the bunch.

then we hit up the beach and the pool. (no pictures from the pool—twins + pool = no free hands.)

daddy bought the boys shell necklaces. max broke his immediately. alex treasured his and wore it from this point on.

and the boys even got to ride in a funny buggy.

on easter morning the boys found their easter baskets, filled with trains, cars, nilla wafers, pretzels, books, bubbles, eggs filled with stickers, and a batman t-shirt! note: no candy—a drive home was on the docket for later!

ironic that he’s helping her eat when he won’t eat a thing himself. ha!

and then, just like that, it was time to go. the weekend went by sooo quickly. and even though i was all allergied and congested, i have to say i enjoyed every minute. thank you so much mamalin and papa ger’! i know i speak for all my boys when i say it was wonderful spending time with you and scott and ashley and baby katelyn!!
