Summer is hot and the living is easy.

May 17, 2014

Finally, the sun has shown itself and given us a break from the relentless raining. When I say relentless, I am not exaggerating like usually I do. This rain will be, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday the sun comes out for 2 hours then goes back away then Saturday, blessed Saturday it graced us with it’s presence, and then on the drive home it started raining again. BUT, I will just keep it as I was SO thankful for this wonderful day we had today. 
We have not gone to the beach since we got to the island mostly because for a while it was too cold and then it was too rainy, and then we would have too many activities. But, today we cleared our schedules and headed north to Camp Schwab for Schwab fest, but we never went to the festival we stopped and the beach and didn’t want to leave.

Ian had never buried his hands in the sand so we were a little worried he might not like it. I should have never worried because then we couldn’t keep him out of the sand, and the sand out of his mouth.

It was such a fun day with our friends Annie and Victor and the hundred other crazy marines who were all over the place celebrating. This beach is on the Pacific side of the island as opposed to the East China Sea side so there were SLIGHT waves. The other side has NO WAVES. It’s kinda crazy looking at the ocean and not seeing waves, especially if you are from California but, I feel it makes for a really good time with the kids and awesome snorkeling and scuba diving!

So here, enjoy the many sandy faces, and bums of our beautiful day at the beach.

 Ian knocked over the tent, then decided this would be the best activity to date and continued to do this several times. He loved it.

Nothing like finishing off the day with sand on the bare bootie.
