The Beach

22 06 2009

Took the kids to the beach yesterday with my hubby, for fathers day. The kids forgot thier towels, but they had a blast. Unfortunatly, there was a strong undercurrent so they couldnt go out far. Even getting in the water up to their knees, #3 got knocked over and pulled in. Not very far, but it was enough to scare us! It’s amazing to me that some of the parents were letting their little kids play by the water by themselves! There was a little boy who was near us that got knocked over a few times. He couldnt have been older then 4. Hubby kept asking me where his parents were, and told me to grab him he got pulled in. I realize you have to give your kids some space sometimes, but the beach isnt the time! I was right there holding my little ones hands. And they are 5 & 7. The older 3 knew they could get pulled in and were holding hands with eachother. 😀 It was so cute. Lots of complaining on the way home because of the sand in the cracks and having to put on their clothes when their bodies were still wet, but they will learn! Good fathers day.
