Friday afternoon we headed to the coast for a weekend of fun and relaxation.  My husband and his brother went kayak fishing early Saturday morning and then we all headed to the beach that afternoon.  This part of the beach is very secluded, thus remains in it's natural element.  There are lots of really pretty pieces of driftwood, unique seashells and whatever else washes up on the shore :) 

We strolled the beach
listening to the waves,
watching the seagulls and pelicans,
playing with hermit crabs,
admiring the oyster reefs, 
jumping in the waves
collecting seashells,
digging in the sand,

  5. Beautiful pictures! Those little cousins look like they could give their mommy a run for her money. So cute! Thank you for sharing the pretty babies at my Make it Pretty Monday party at The Dedicated House. Hope to see you again on Monday! Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse
