Egg hunt at the beach
We had a great day today, we went to an egg hunt at the beach. M was really excited to go and she didn't stop talking for the entire 45 minutes it took us to get there. We had to park three blocks away and walk because we couldn't find parking any closer. When we got to the boardwalk it was difficult to walk through the crowd of people, it was so full. We went to the area designated for the kids 0-4 and waited patiently (well as patiently as you can possibly wait with a 4 year old) for the egg hunt to begin. They announced the rules: due to such a high volume of people, every child was only allowed to pick up 3 eggs. Then at the count of three they let us through the yellow tape. M ran as fast as she could and picked out her 3 eggs in under a minute and then continued to run toward the ocean.
She loved the waves and ran toward them but I made sure to keep her out of the water because it was freezing cold.
Afterwards we walked on the boardwalk for a little while and then went back on the sand. Dr.D and M played in the sand, they made a sand car and then we all picked shells.
On our way back home we stopped for coffee and M fell asleep for the entire ride home. I considered it a successful Sunday.
