On Tuesday, we went out on the ocean in the morning. The day was very overcast, which made it a lot cooler on the sand, and Katie Anne really enjoyed it. She was still frightened of the ocean when we first got there, but she got more brave as the morning went on. Finally, she overcame her fear and ventured out into the water! Saunders spent a lot of time swimming in the ocean, and we all built a lot of sandcastles which Katie Anne enjoyed destroying. My dad even let us bury him up to his neck in sand!

Saunders resists the temptation to cover up Dad's head with sand, but he did add some of his own sand illustrations - not pictured!
