Myrtle Beach - The Final Days

During our final days at the beach Wren came to love playing in the sand.  She still wouldn't go barefoot, but there is always next time. 

 We are pretty sure, Wren thought she was cleaning the beach.  She collected lots and lots of shells!

Myrtle Beach Part III - The Crab Hat, Build-a-Bear, and the Merry-Go-Round

She loves this hat, but she thinks it's "Melmo" (Elmo)

Her very first Merry-Go-Round ride.

She is pushing the bunny's heart in (after she gave it a kiss)

She was very excited once she saw it finished!

Myrtle Beach 2012 - The Beach Saga Continues...

Success!! Wren played in the sand and picked up sea shells for almost an hour!! After a walk on the beach Wednesday morning when she saw kids of all ages playing on the beach she was ready! Actually, she was trying to go get their toys, but that is another story. We got her pail and she started picking up sea shells. We are pretty sure she thought she was "cleaning" the beach. She loved it! She was a tad unsure of actually playing in the sand, but pretty soon she was covered in it! Looking for shells we buried, she would say "where?" She liked watching the waves, but the water is pretty chilly!

And of course she had to taste it...

Myrtle Beach 2012 - Part I

Well we made it to South Carolina, after hitting MAJOR traffic jams - due to a mistake (or mistakes) made by a certain someone who shall remain nameless.  Subsequently, Wren will be in charge of navigation on the trip home.  Our room is on the 2nd floor overlooking the ocean, and the Lazy River.  Wren absolutely loves sitting on the balcony watching and yelling to the older kids floating by.  Wren absolutely hates the sand on the beach.  No dirt for her!  IF she wears her sneakers, and IF the tide is low so she can run in the hard sand, and IF there are sea gulls to chase Wren loves the beach.  IF you try to put her in the dry sand and build a sandcastle her temper tantrum can be heard by beach-goers in the Florida Keys...

Easter Morning

Dressed up temper tantrum...

Who needs the beach, when you can play in the cupboards??!!

The Easter bunny brought bracelets!

Easter Weekend (a week early)

Seeing as we will be in South Carolina for Easter weekend, we celebrated a week early with Abby's family.

 Who knows what she is doing here...    :-)

She LOVED the hat at the store when we bought it, we practically had to put her on the checkout to scan and pay for the hat.  Do you think she wanted anything to do with it yesterday?  I think this is the only picture we got with her wearing it!
