We finally made it to the main sand dunes that the kids were able to climb. It was much steeper than I remembered! It was so very hot that day.
Olivia made it all the way to the top! Matt had to carry her on his shoulders after a bit but other than that, she made it! We were all joking that the dune was really Olivia’s version of heaven; she L-O-V-E-S the sand!! She just sat and played and made sand angels. She was so happy!!
The boys got to the top, ran down, came back up again, ran down…you get the picture. They were in heaven too!
After one trek, they saw another, very steep, dune behind us and wanted to climb it. I was hot, tired and didn’t want to…but I did it anyway. It’s times like those that I’m really glad I work out. It was a tough climb! But I was so glad I did because it was something special for the boys and I and…the view! Gorgeous! If you look in the picture of the boys at the top, the little dot behind them is Olivia and Matt! That’s how high we were!!
Of course the boys wanted to run down this very steep dune as fast as they could. Matthew ran a little slower and made it down just fine. Gabe, on the other hand, ran as fast as he could and totally wiped out! He was ok and we had a great laugh! And I caught it all on camera!
We were definitely tired and hot so we ran down the dune one last time and headed for the beach!
