Family Weekend

We started our weekend on Saturday, heading to York Beach, Maine.  What we didn't anticipate, was the traffic. Ugh! What should have been an hour trip, took about three.  We decided to stop for lunch first before suiting up for the ocean. So.. Sun & Surf Restaurant it was! The food was okay, but the ambiance was great! Seated right on the water, with waves crashing and surfers dancing on the waves. The twins approved!!


                         After eating, we headed down to Short Sands Beach for some water fun!

The ocean was a total hit!!   Ezra couldn't get enough of the sand and waves.  Eli was a little bit more sensitive to his surroundings, but warmed up after seeing his twin act like...well... A Wild Man!  There was a little "pool" of ocean water that was great for the babies to splash in.
                                                     But that wasn't enough for Ezra!!
                                                                      And.......He's off!

He REALLY loved the ocean!!

Ezra & Daddy

Eli enjoyed hanging out with Daddy and playing with his shovel & bucket.

                                         We all had such a good time splashing in the ocean.

After about an hour, the tide was quickly coming in and it was time for us to pack up.  There was enough sand stuck to the twins and myself to build a sandcastle!!  That was fun to wash off at the shower near the parking lot. What?!? They don't heat the water?! Sorry boys.
We all changed into dry clothes and went for a walk to the shops.  This time we had the lighter, side by side stroller, so it was easier to shop.  Do you know there is at least one big step to get into each shop there? Phew! 
The boys first taste of cotton candy ice cream, a stop at the bakery for some take-home treats and we were spent!  It had gotten so late, we decided to stop at The Shore restaurant for dinner. Mommy got a lobster roll..yum!  I could barely keep my eyes open for the ride home.  What a great day!

Sunday was a lazy day.  We took a ride through town and happened across a woman cleaning up the remnants of her weekend yard sale.  I hopped out of the truck, leaving Mikey to sit with the sleeping twins.  I noticed she had a 1979 Little Tikes Cozy Coupe. It looked just like the one I had when I was little.  I had to have it for the boys.  
I mean, Eli sure does look cool driving the coupe! 
Here is the kicker though.... while we were discussing price on the coupe I laughingly asked if she had another one.  And to my surprise she said.. "I sure do!"  What?!  SCORE!! 
Who knew that after a weekend of selling her items she would have not one, but TWO of these adorable four wheeled little vehicles.  And fifteen dollars for the pair! What a deal.

 Now, to decide if I will refurbish them, or leave them as is. Hmm?
