The weekend of June 23rd, we packed up the minivan and traveled to Sea Isle City. Nana and Pap Pap already had plans so we relied on Aunt Terrie, Uncle Milt, Erienne and Dave for back up. Gwen and Cole had fun playing in the sand and at the edge of the water. Reid was thrilled to play in the sand but did something that I had never even thought about-- he picked out small pieces of shells to try to eat. So..i had to keep a very close eye on my little troublemaker. The most fun Cole and Gwen had was one afternoon when someone had left a small sandcastle and hole. They enjoyed shoveling out the hole; jumping from one section of sand to another; and playing pirate on the beach. Meanwhile, Reid climbed the mountains and ate some sand.
