last saturday we made our way to a new beach in delray with some friends of ours. it was a very hot day already at 10:30 when we got there. it was the perfect beach for the kids. you could walk out far into the water, there were hardly any waves and there was a sand bar so we didn't have to worry about bea getting swept out to sea.
micah found this red sea sponge while he was snorkeling. he was pretty excited about it. we didn't know what it was until we got home and matt looked it up. that boy sure does love all things to do with the sea. he says he wants to be a marine biologist and i wouldn't be at all surprised if that is what he really does grow up to do. beatrix says she wants to be a pilot.
as you can see from the picture below, penelope and i are pretty peach. but after staying at the beach for three hours and forgetting to apply our sun screen again,
the whole family looked like lobsters by the time we got home.
