Saturday at the beach

I woke up this morning to a rainy Saturday morning...
I played some Jack Johnson and dance around for a bit...
By the time the boys got home at noon the sun was out...
So we packed up Shane's Soul and headed to Walnut Beach!
(the coolest new 2010 KIA, not his already beautiful soul!)
It couldn't have been a more perfect day at the beach...
blue skies, cool breeze
warming sunshine and my favorite boys!
(This picture does no justice for how beautifully blue the sky was!)
Lots of pictures - and I may even have posted my 2 favs more then once...
I have so many more - but I am too lazy to post them all
This guy may explain where the cool breeze was coming from!
Gotta love Leo the Lion!
This was my favorite!
Poseidon fighting off a sea monster...
Anyone for a game of domino's?
(*laughs* I bet she would have loved this shot of her butt!)
The crocodile hunter...
This one was cool and beachy -
it had a sea turtle, a whale, a crab and a dolphin on the other side
The precision on this was neat...that is Obama in the middle.
But I like my politics separate from my sand art!
This kid was so proud of his alligator!
with good reason...
What a creative little guy using shells as the sharp teeth!
This one was the boy's favorite...
A shark eating a guy on a surf board.
(It was cool - but not as cool as Poseidon!)
I guess if you can't find a flesh and blood chick...
...he should have made her a mermaid...
I *heart* mermaids!
Pretty cool - right?
One last shot of the boy's favorite...
One last shot of my favorite...
Which were your favorites?
Next year I hope to enter...
(shhhh...I am signing Ry and I up!)
Doesn't it look fun?!
(Hey, how did my beautiful soul man get here?)
*laughs*
Doesn't he look like he is enjoying the beach?
So next year - perhaps you will see my creation on here!
After the beach we went and had lobster rolls on the deck at my favorite place in Stratford. It's right where the river meets the sound and it is beautiful.
I love just sitting and watching boats.
(Yes, I had lobster, only half the roll and a delicious salad with light balsamic instead of fries)
The best part was I drank ice water and I wasn't miserable not enjoying my regular martini!
Teaching this old dog new tricks is getting easier!
How was your Saturday?

These are incredible! I've never seen a sandcastle contest! I love the smoothness of the dominos and think the face (blowing wind it looks like) coming out of the flat is very cool as well!
