We went to Mustang Island on Friday to camp on the beach. It was so much fun. The weather was amazing. The moon was so majestic and it was so fun to sit in the sand by the campfire and hear the sounds of the ocean, the crickets, the crackling fire...just awesome.
(And I might add romantic after we got the kids into their sleeping bags, hehe.)
Peter got up early so I took him out of the tent and we watched the sun rise.
Can you see the colorful eggs out there?
When the girls got up and found their baskets in the tent, they came out and searched for their eggs in the sand. Unfortunately some of the candy inside got a little wet and sandy too and at least one egg fell into a hole dug by a creature in the night. Things to remember for future reference! We got a cute video of the hunt.
Then we spent the day playing in the sand, relaxing in the tent, and swimming and wake boarding in the ocean.
There was a butt load of sea weed on the shore!
Some of our friends, the Hansens, met up with us at the beach and that made it even more fun!
It was really pretty much perfect.
We spent Easter Sunday at church and then eating a nice meal and talking and thinking about the Resurrection of Jesus.
