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.

She loves this hat, but she thinks it's "Melmo" (Elmo)
Her very first Merry-Go-Round ride.
Wren at Build-A-Bear
She is pushing the bunny's heart in (after she gave it a kiss)
She was very excited once she saw it finished!
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!
A family portrait :-)

And of course she had to taste it...

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...
Dressed up temper tantrum...
Who needs the beach, when you can play in the cupboards??!!
The Easter bunny brought bracelets!

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