Beach baby!

Hi all!  We've been back from the beach since Saturday afternoon and I still have not gotten settled yet.  Unpacking is the worst!  Oh well, it's the price we pay for a great vacation!  

So, the beach was fantastic and SO relaxing!  It was just what we needed.  We stayed in a great condo on the 11th floor, which made for some amazing views!  Caroline enjoyed the beach for the most part, until she wanted to suck her thumb.  Poor thing.  She learned the consequences of sucking a sandy thumb later in the week and easily tired of the sandy beach.  By Friday she was all beached out and we spent most of the day indoors hanging out and relaxing.   :-)
Now, because I'm a crazy mom who loves her kid and needed to capture every single moment of Caroline's first beach trip, I took about 200 plus pictures.  These pictures can be found on my flickr.  :-)  (This link has been edited for those who can't seem to figure out how to navigate flickr.  The link will now take you to the actual page where you can view a slideshow of ALL the pictures.)  :-) 

I thought I'd just share a few of my favorite on here!  Enjoy!  :-)

Caroline's favorite beach activity was chasing the seagulls!

Snapshots of the Bay Bridge on the way home!  Caroline kept saying "Bye beach!"  So cute!

Bye beach, indeed!  It was nice to go, but nice to come home.  Tomorrow is my 2 year anniversary!  AMAZING!  Stay tuned for more on that subject! The parents come on Thursday to take care of C while Andrew and I have a romantic getaway in Philly! Cheesesteaks are so romantic, don't ya think?  :-) Yay!   

Don't forget to check out the flickr, if you didn't get enough Caroline pictures here.  :-)

Great pictures and great times. I just think it is weird that all that time at the beach and i still seem pretty white in those pictures. Any way you can make me look skinnier and less hairy? :-)
