Patrick ate sand by the handful. Anna built sand castles for the sole purpose of smashing them. Patrick was not quite ready to end his daily beach routine, for when we returned, he picked Ben's bathing suit out the dirty clothes pile and handed it to him Monday morning as he was leaving for work! Nasty reminder that our wonderful vacation had come to an end and it was back to the real world! We spent the week in Stone Harbor N.J. with Ben's parents and his dad's side of the family! Our days were filled with sun, surf, and sand in the most picturesque beach town I have ever set foot in! We then took the ferry to Ocean City, MD for Ben's lacrosse tournament. Not the same relaxing atmosphere, but still fun! Hard to believe that next summer we will be running after three sets of footprints on the beach!
