Memorial Day Weekend

We went out to the coast with Sarah and John and Ali for Memorial Day Weekend and stayed at a beach house.

The weather was pretty good until Monday morning when we had some rain. But we still had a great time anyway.

Ali and John flew a kite.

We played in the waves. My feet were so cold they hurt. Ali didn't seem to mind at all. We also built a sandcastles. Beware of Grandpas that might kick you in a sand ditch, face first, but not on purpose. One day Ali renamed the beach "The dead bug gallery" There were dead bugs everywhere. It was kind of creepy.

We went to the Aquarium. Ali loved it. Two amazing things happened.

First, we traveled back in time and found 9 year old Adam at the shark petting pool.

Second, we found Ali's identical twin in the shark tunnel.

We had s'mores one night and John's sweatshirt string went right into his marshmallow.

The raccoons were hoping we'd give them some marshmallows. They came up pretty close to the deck to check us out. Check out the backdrop.

It was a great weekend, I wish I had a beach house. But the next best thing is to have your daughter have a friend with a beach house.
