This was the first 4th of July for them, and the first time in a long time that we did it at the beach.
We got there early to get a good spot, the kids played in the sand for at least four hours. Digging, making sand angels, covering themselves or each other with sand - they had a blast. They loved how the sand felt on their feet - and when we got home - boy we had sand in placed I didn't think possible!
I should probably tell you we were at Rock Away Beach.
My favorite line from that night came from Jackson to his Dad.
"Do you want to come sit with me Daddy, it is a really great view!"
