Making Freckles at the Beach

We started our trip to the beach yesterday....and made good time in spite of having to turn around once we got to the interstate because we forgot to grab the swimming suits out of the dryer.

He was getting nervous, when we finally saw a sign for Texaco gas with gators. Gators? What? My curiosity was peeked. When we arrived we noticed a crowd of people behind the station looking over the fence so naturally we went too!

 Jolie has been an amazing traveler...she rode well for 6 hours...and has been excited about the ocean even sitting down and letting the waves creep up on her legs...she likes the sand too, but keeps wiping her face and getting it in her mouth and then she licks my shirt to get the sand least she doesn't like to eat I am told I did as a
Here's a photo for the China update...each photo must have BOTH parents and child at the same time...which is hard for me cause this momma always has the camera in her hand and is usually behind it.
