We've managed two beach days so far during our trip. One to Hapuna with everyone and one to Beach 69 with just the grandmas. For the most part the babies loved the beach. The liked swimming in the ocean and playing in the sand. Here are a zillion cute pics from those two days!
I had this grand vision of a picture with all three babies on the boogie board in the ocean. I think this would've been possible if we'd tried it first thing in the morning before Isaiah got crabby and the waves picked up. As it was...well...you can see what we got below...

|Ellie enjoying the boogie board strap|
|Having fun in the sand|

|two girls on the boogie board|
|mmm...sand toys are yummy!|
|Don't you think this could be an advertisement |
for Aveeno baby sunscreen?!
|Ellie closely inspecting her sand covered hands|
|Avery's favorite activity....walking!|
(having two adults helps save our backs!)
|Isaiah wasn't always a happy camper|
(the next day he was really sick so that might've
been the real issue rather than anything about the beach!)
|would've been cute except for the screaming boy in the middle!|
|Add in a grandma & take away the screaming boy & it turned|
out pretty cute!
Here are the pics from our day at Beach 69...
|Ellie belle in the sand (notice that we switched the girl's rash|
guards...just to make it harder for all of you, of course!)
|this little boy loves his shovels!|
|swimming in the ocean!|
|Their favorite game this day was swimming towards each other|
to give big kisses! You can see Avery's wide open kissing
mouth in this pic!
|Ellie having fun with Mommy in the ocean!|
|splash splash splash Avery|
|photo op on some cool driftwood =)|
|Isaiah & Mama splashing around|
|more kissing game fun|
Isaiah was soooo cute because he was belly
laughing each & every time!
|three way "swim & kiss" game =)|
|playing at the beach is tiring!|
(of course she only slept like this for about 15min!)
|And this was the napping arrangement for the other two!|
I got a good workout walking them up & down the beach for 45min
