a day at the beach..

so i must sheepishly admit....we live in virginia beach...15 minutes from my driveway to the edge of the atlantic....number of times we've been to the beach this year: 1.  i know what some of you are thinking...i live 1,000 miles from the beach and i've been there more than you have this year...and that would be a true story.  BUT, when we actually made it...we were so glad we did.  I also felt like a total #momfail because my little babe LOVES the beach.  There was not an ounce of fear or shyness in that girl when it came to the waves and sand...it warmed my heart to see my girl loving the beach so much.  So, we're going to go back...seriously.  Here are some pics from our adventure:

Thank you all SO much for your continued prayers and support...i am so thankful to be surrounded by so many wonderful people (virtually and in the flesh) and it has really helped me.  I feel like I've really come a long way in the past week - I can actually talk about everything without breaking down and have come to terms with the reality of it all.  so thank you, thank you, thank you!!  this week has been a blur and i know i've missed out on catching up with everyone else and i apologize...im hoping to get caught up by the end of the week:)

We live about 20 minutes for Lake Michigan and haven't been there yet this year and yet people come for miles away to vacation there. We have been to small inland lakes and the pool but not the big lake.

We live about 10 minutes from the beach but it's the Long Island sound which I totally discount as a real beach in the first place. Still we don't get out there nearly as much as we should.

you're right, i'm thinking, why are you not going to the beach more often? but seriously what an adorable little beach baby you got!!!!

Awesome pics! We are the same way, we have the beach right near us, Gwen can't get enough, yet we have only been twice. She has no fear. lol.

Addie is precious as always!

My parents lived in LA several years before I was born and said they only time they went to the beach was when people were visiting from out of town. You get into the hum drum of daily life and just don't take advantage of what's literally in your back yard, so I totally get it.

That said, I am jealous you've even been once! I can't wait to take Jamie to the beach some day!

I wish we lived closer to the beach. We live about an hour away. I'm jealous! Cute pictures, looks like addie had a great time

I'm in the same boat. We live at the shore, but the pool is just so much easier. We did venture to te beach a few times and while baby boy loves it, it exhausts mama! Addie's beach pics are too darn cute!

We haven't been to the beach..since LAST April. Two summers with NO beach time...completely unlike me, but with these three I feel like I need to pack for a LIFETIME!

She does look like she loves it! Don't beat yourself up about it. The beach isn't going anywhere :)

Continued prayers!
