Mike and Junah, testing the waters: Mike for temperature, Junah for taste.

We spent most of Sunday at Pensacola Beach. It's just a 30-40 min drive from our house. When we pulled up and stepped out onto the sand, I just couldn't get over the fact that we live so close to the ocean. It was a BEAUTIFUL day - sunny and 82 degrees with an occasional mild wind. Perfect.
The Tuckers and their dog, Maggie joined us. We had a really nice time laying in the sand, throwing football, playing with the dogs, listening to music and daring to get into the cold water. Mike and Chad actually swam in it. It was pretty cold, so I went in just about to my knees to splash sand off. Junah went in to his knee level, too. However, he thinks the ocean is a giant water bowl. He drinks, and then he hacks up the salt for awhile afterward.
We're looking forward to going back next weekend if it's nice. It'll feel like vacation every week here. I love it!
