October at the beach (1)

We got to take a long weekend vacation to the beach with Matt's family. The weather was perfect.. it was chilly in the morning when we woke up (got to remember, Hunter gets up at 5:30 a.m.) but around 9:30 or 10:00 the temperature was perfect. On our first trip this year to the beach, Hunter enjoyed the sand and ocean but was more relaxed than he was on this trip. This time.... he understood what all the beach had to offer and he wanted to experience and see everything.
He had a blast hanging out with Luke and Sara. They are the best cousins and really guide and take care of Hunter. They are two of the best kids I know!
Grandad spent the first day digging this HUGE hole. It even had steps and everything in it. As people were walking on the beach, they would stop just to get a look at how big it was. They were very impressed. He enjoyed digging it, I enjoyed watching.. haha. I told him I wasn't working that hard on vacation :-) The kids really loved it (which is why Grandad loves doing it)!

Hunter loved the birds on the beach. He would be playing in the sand and if one stopped near him, he threw down those toys and went chasing after the birds. He just didn't quite understand why the birds would always fly away. I have got to hand it to him... he is strong willed. He would keep chasing every bird he saw... no matter how long he had to run. Lets just say, he took a LONG nap after all of that chasing.

This is Hunter's new friend, Ansley. They have played before the beach trip but this time he was more comfortable around her. Right when she walked in the door, he started giving her kisses. I wasn't in the room when he was doing that, but when he saw me he immediately stopped! They were precious on the beach together. He doesn't share his crackers too much but he eagerly shared them with her. If she wasn't so darn cute, I might have gotten jealous... just kidding!
