Day 1 and 2 of the beach

Every year we spend 2 weeks in the outer banks.  The girls love the beach.  Pete usually can only come down for 1 week and then the girls stay with Mom Mom and I.    When we first started going to the beach with Audrey she was not in love with the sand and the ocean.  The first year was okay because she was only 9 months.  I slept very little, but on the beach she was ok.  The second year she voiced her dislike of the sand quite loudly and even resisted going down to the beach towards the end of the trip.  Last year things were better, she tolerated the sand but refused to go near the water.  I was curious about this year because the girl has become a fish in the water ( a sinking fish, but a fish).   So on the first day she was hesitant about the water for about 5 minutes and then had a blast.  Celia did not hesitate for even a second this year.   She got our tube and went right for the water, even getting wiped out a few times and recovering.

 Daddy, can I fly the kite?
 It is so high, I can really fly the kite
 The shark kite!

 On the second day the rain came and so we spent a lot of time inside.  
In the late afternoon we ventured out to the beach of a short time. 
Celia had the most fun I think.  
 The girls were in super silly mode when we returned from the beach
